The launch of the 3 Minute Embody coincides with the global retail launch of the Herman Miller Embody Chair on March 2 to select retailers including SmartFurniture.com. This revolutionary design in office chairs took nearly seven years for Herman Miller to develop.

"The Herman Miller Embody Chair is a remarkable innovation. We are pleased to introduce our new Smart Designer "3-Minute" technology simultaneously with the retail launch of the Embody Chair," said T. J. Gentle, President and CEO of SmartFurniture.com. "When Herman Miller first told us about the Embody Chair months ago, we immediately saw the opportunity to adapt our Smart Designer technology in a way that would empower our customers to design an Embody Chair on the web quickly and easily. We've kept it simple and fast, allowing anyone to design and order on the spot."
"The Embody Chair offers groundbreaking features and utterly unique benefits in comfort and health, and SmartFurniture.com is proud to make it even more accessible to customers," added Stephen Culp, Smart Furniture Founder and Chairman. "The release of our online '3-Minute Embody' goes straight to what makes SmartFurniture.com different: Design on Demand, which allows SmartFurniture.com to bring custom design to a whole new market-- everyone."
The company also announced they will be launching an increasing array of custom-design features on the web in 2009, including home office furniture design tools, office chair and desk space planning tools.
