White Herman Miller Original Eames Blue Cushioned DFSR Side Shell Chair
An original Eames Herman Miller white side shell chair with Alexander Girards’ Navy Blue cushion is amazing on its silver DSR base making a perfect combination. This more unique finish sees the shell only have a cushion on the seat section which is a modern take to the upholstered style these shells are famed for.
The Eames shells have barely changed through their long life, retaining their modern feel with flare. The more recent approach has seen the reintroduction of the fiberglass shells and the new addition of the single seat cushion rather than a fully upholstered shell creating a new dynamic for this iconic chair.
The newer white shell is in a good used condition with only some slight signs of use present on it.
The original, factory fitted, cushion is a very nice bold colour and will benefit from a small clean.
The label on the underside indicates this is a newer Herman Miller produced shell.
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 factory of origin are some that can affect the value greatly. Excellent examples of a lovely combination such as this represents a good investment prospect.
