If there were ever a coffee table book you might actually read, Herman Miller’s new 600-page tome is it. Herman Miller: A Way of Living covers the company’s 114-year history in 10 chapters, a couple thousand illustrations and plenty of grainy archival photos. From selling princess dressers to Sears Roebuck to the introduction of the Eames Lounge to the making of the “Dot-Com Throne,” the book details the turning points in the Michigan furniture maker’s past, including hundreds of pages dedicated to its stable of mid-century modern masters.

Today on Amazon, the new book is on sale — $35 off its launch price.
