Dark Tone Pair (2) Herman Miller Original Vintage Eames DSW Side Chairs
A rather rare version of a classic. These vintage Herman Miller Eames highly fibrous dark tone DSW shell chairs are stunning on their newer used light oak bases. A unique colour complimented by the light golden DSW bases, these chairs are in excellent vintage condition and are great examples 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 these chairs 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 chairs work effortlessly in whatever environment you wish to put them into, whether it be a modern dining space or a retro one; these chairs will simply blend in as easily as they 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 these shells originate from Herman Millers’ Summit Plastics factory and dates them – with their 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, these chairs’ investment value should be reasonable.
