Update - August 30, 2023: We are currently estimating 6 to 8 weeks for new orders of Embody chair headrests

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 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.

Once again, thank you for your support, and we look forward to providing you with a high-quality headrest for your Embody chair!

Amazing upgrade to the Embody!

This headrest was well worth the wait! The fabric and material of the headrest feels identical to the Embody chair, and the build quality is top-notch. Installation was easy, and the headrest is very adjustable, allowing me to find the perfect position for my head and neck.

I’m loving it

There’s really nothing new for me to say, but I’ll say it anyways - I love love love how the materials and the looks are 100% consistent with the chair. If somebody sees my chair they will automatically assume the headrest is part of the chair. They won’t even question it. I also love how it’s highly customizable, which fits the nature of this chair. I do wish the adjustments can be done without having to have to keep that mini wrench. I know one adjustment should be all you need but I’m the kind of person who changes mind about settings all the time (I’m indecisive about the concept of “comfort”) and changing things around is part of the fun for me.

It was really worth the wait. I can only imagine horrible backlog you are experiencing right now. I sincerely hope you don’t burn out, because what you’re doing is wonderful and extremely professional. Once again I am super impressed by the design, quality and the consistency. I can only imagine the amount of research required.

Thank you so much for the product! I’m a very happy buyer!!!

As if it was sold as one piece

They are in perfect match, not only the fabric but the frame. I just ordered another one for my wife too.


I love the headrest. The detail and fit is amazing. Very easy to install as well.

Dustin Maxfield

Fits chair perfectly. Matches color. Easily adjustable. Easy install.

Expensive but works.

I work long hours and use the Herman Miller Embody chair. For the longest time I have felt the only thing missing is a headrest and this product answers that want. It was easy to install and the colors and material feel close enough to the chair that you would not guess it is an addon. I have only had it a few days but it feels durable. It has many adjustments that help give it the perfect fit. I have short hair and the material does not grab my hair and feels slightly softer than the chair material making it pretty comfortable. I am impressed and would recommend if you have the extra to spend. In the end this is not a lounging chair but the headrest does add some missing comfort for those long hours and moments when you need to just lay back and destress.

How the Embody should be sold

I was very early in the pre-order on this new headrest, and I must say if you have a Herman Miller Embody, order yours now. You will not be disappointed. The color matches and build quality are what you would expect of a top-of-the-line product. Just like the Embody itself.
The customer service I received from Atlas Headrests was also top of the line. When I needed a replacement piece (my fault not theirs), they just sent it.

My neck thanks you

Loving the headrest

I absolutely love my headrest. I’ve been using it everyday. I honestly think Herman Miller should partner with this company to put these headrests on every chair. You won’t be disappointed that’s for sure!

All of our headrests are designed with ergonomics at the forefront.
Trust us, your spine will thank you.


Adjust position vertically, horizontally, and tilt to perfection. Adjust it to your personal preference, no matter your height.


Herman Miller should sell this with the chair. The engineering is incredible...
I recommend this 100%.

Brandon Middleton

Very comfortable, easy to adjust height and extension... Installation was quick and looks like it belongs on the chair.

This is the perfect addition to my home office! I thought I had it all with the Aeron. This is a must have!
