Good Questions: Can I Replace These Chair Feet?

Hello AT,

I recently purcahsed a set of four vintage Herman Miller shell chairs on ebay, and some of the feet are missing. I was hoping to replace the feet, but I can't seem to find replacements AND I can't even figure out how to remove the feet that are still on. I'd like to salvage these chairs, but they're scratching my floor pretty badly. Any ideas?? Surely someone else has had to deal with this problem before, right? Thanks for your help!! EJ

Dear EJ,

We know this problem, but we had never thought that it could be fixed. As far as we know, these are little cupped feet of some kind of plastic that is popped on in the factory over a ball like joint. We would HOPE that Herman Miller would have replacements.

Does anyone know anything more about this??
