Dark Tone Herman Miller Original Vintage Eames DSW Side Chair
A rather rare version of a classic. This vintage Herman Miller Eames highly fibrous dark tone DSW shell chair is stunning on its newer used black oak dowel base. A unique colour complimented by the stark black colour DSW base, this chair is in excellent vintage condition and is a great example of the Eames shell chair.
Typically found on the upholstered shells; dark tone is a rare shell colour to find in the un-upholstered fiberglass finish which makes this chair extra special. Not quite black, not quite brown or even dark grey the colour will have you guessing as more reveals itself the longer you look at it. This wonderful nature means the chair works effortlessly in whatever environment you wish to put it into, whether it be a modern dining space or a retro one; this chair will simply blend in as easily as it will stand out as the center piece depending on what you require.
In great vintage condition, this is a rather unique version of this iconic piece. There are no cracks or dents and the colour has still retained a strong and vibrant finish with little to no fading present.
The ‘S’ within the circle indicates this shell originates from Herman Millers’ Summit Plastics factory and dates it – with its colour – as being produced between 1976-1989.
The Eames shells range in their investment value depending upon many factors. The condition, age, colour and even origin of the shell can affect the price of each shell. As this is a rather unique colour to be found in its un-upholstered format, its’ investment value should be reasonable.
