Thank you for your patience as we developed this headrest during the pandemic. We're excited to announce that final production has begun, and pre-orders are still open!
The pre-order period will close on March 31, 2023, after which we'll start collecting final payments. From April 1, 2023, the $10 pre-order discount will be removed, and backorders will be available.
What's the story behind this headrest?
Our team of designers and engineers, based in West Michigan, have spent their careers in the office furniture industry, inspired by companies like Haworth, MillerKnoll, and Steelcase. We believe that well-designed headrests are essential for good postural health and ergonomics, especially when reclining.
We have watched and participated in moving office task seating from the cubicle into new settings, like the home.
Just as height adjustable desks undeniably allow for better postural health, well designed headrests do the same. So, with postural health and a passion for ergonomics in mind - we concluded that chairs are better with a properly designed headrest, especially when you recline.
We're looking forward to you experiencing our new headrest first hand. The benefits and comfort of ergonomically optimized cervical support for the Embody chair are within reach.
Why are you offering a pre-order on this product?
We're offering pre-orders to align our first production run with demand for specific color combinations.
What if I want to cancel my pre-order?
You can cancel your pre-order for a full refund in USD up until two weeks after the pre-order period closes, but once production is in full-swing, cancellations won't be possible.
Why is there an option for full and partial payment?
We offer both full and partial payment options due to limitations with our Shopify platform. If you prefer to pay everything now, you can, and we'll refund the full amount if you cancel within the allowed timeframe.
Why did this take so long?
Designing and engineering the headrest from scratch and organizing production with suppliers has been laborious, especially during the pandemic, but we've refused to cut corners. We're a small company with limited resources, but we believe you'll be happy with the results.
If I pre-order now, when will I get my headrest?
We'll begin shipping in April 2023, building in batches based on fabric colors and prioritizing the oldest pre-orders first. Nearly all parts are being made within an hour of our headquarters in Holland, Michigan, so we don't anticipate shipping delays or factory shutdowns due to Covid. Check out the infographic below for the estimated timeline.
Once again, thank you for your support, and we look forward to providing you with a high-quality headrest for your Embody chair!
How do I determine my fabric type and color?
You should have a sticker on the underside of the top of your chair. This sticker will have the color code for your fabric. You can cross reference that with the list below.
