Inside Herman Miller’s Lab

November 20, 2017


We care about quality as much as our partners Herman Miller care. Check out this amazing article in Architecture Digest written by Samantha Weiss-Hills:

What’s your Secret Weapon?

April 21, 2014

A recent article on Fast Code Design highlighted what set designer Claudette Didul-Mann hearkens as her secret weapon of creating the most posh office environment for the ladies and gentlemen of Mad Men (now in it’s final season). That secret is Herman Miller. Claudette has been using resources at the design yard right here in Zeeland, Michigan to make sure all the pieces on set are true to period and the finishes they are using are in the same vein. We would love to walk you throughout the furniture showroom at A.K.RIKK’S and show off which pieces are in the show!

Our second featured living space for our LIVING by A.K. Rikk’s series is a little bit closer to home. Less than an hour actually. James Kirkpatrick wanted a home full of design qualities yet still fit for an entire family and their practical living habits. It surely helped when a family friend that was commissioned to take on this challenging feat happened to be THE George Nelson. In case you didn’t know, George was one of the founding fathers of American modernism (a.k.a the man!) and partnered with people like Charles & Ray Eames in designing iconic products we still know and use today.

Feast your eyes on the photos of this Kalamazoo home masterpiece!

If you could have just one piece…What would it be?

June 3, 2013

We play this game quite a bit at A.K.RIKK’S. Speaking for myself, this is usually an Isaia shirt, or a Rag & Bone pair of Espadrilles, or a Cucinelli scarf. Not this month though. From now until the 10th Herman Miller is offering 15% OFF its entire collection! This industry sale only happens two times a year so…this month’s piece is an Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman, or one of the new Medici outdoor pieces! Where would you put your new pieces?

Last Day to Save on Herman Miller

December 10, 2012

The Biannual Sale

November 19, 2012

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Yes, people, it’s finally here! Herman Miller’s biannual sale started today and modern furniture buffs just peed themselves from excitement. In all seriousness, today is a big day for the modern furniture industry. Not only is there 15% off all Herman Miller products, but to top it off there is also free shipping. Impeccably designed, rich in history, and based in Michigan, their products are the perfect holiday gift. 

The company was established in 1923 in Zeeland, Michigan, just a 25-minute drive from Grand Rapids. Once established, Herman Miller, with the help of his son-in-law, “committed the company’s focus to ‘modern furniture,’ party because he saw a moral dimension to original, contemporary design that solved problems.” Because of this mentality, the company continues to design products that improve the human experience in built environments by taking a problem-solving approach. In sum, it helps people do things better.

With plenty of Herman Miller furniture in the store and all the resources to order exactly what you want, skip the guessing-game online and come into A.K. Rikk’s for this rare sale!
