The vibrant upholstery, designed by Alexander Girard, compliments well with the white fibreglass back making this dining chair a wonderful piece for your interior.
The Eames shell series chairs really do not need any introduction. With early prototypes beginning in the late 1940s, production began on the Eames' dream of 'chairs for the masses in 1950 with the arm and then the sides later in 1952/53. The original and vintage fiberglass chairs were so versatile and so modern that they only increase in popularity as the years go by.
Fibreglass originals always have a base colour and gorgeous 'visible' fibres in the shell itself. Upholstered versions were introduced by Herman Miller a little later on using fabrics and textiles designed by the esteemed designer Alexander Girard.
This upholstered DSW dining chair is still in great vintage condition, with no cracks, chips, or defects. The original Alexander Girard fabric for Herman Miller is in great condition with no defects and no lifting. It is not unexpected to find the odd mark on the fabric of this age but a clean should suffice.
Herman Miller logo band denotes manufacture at Summits Plastic around 1959-1989.
Eames Shell Chairs vary from 1 to 5 stars for investment. The reasons depend on so many factors but mainly the condition, the rarity of the colour, the originality of the base, the age and of course the maker are those that determine. Excellent examples of a lovely combination such as these represent a good value investment.
