White Pair (2) Herman Miller Original Eames Blue Cushioned DFSR Side Shell Chairs
Some original Eames Herman Miller white side shell chairs with Alexander Girards’ Navy Blue cushion are great on silver DSR bases making a perfect combination. This more unique finish sees the shells only having 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 shells are in a good used condition with only some slight signs of use present on them.
The original, factory fitted, cushions are a very nice bold colour and will benefit from a small clean.
The label on the underside indicates these are newer Herman Miller produced shells.
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 these represent a good investment prospect.
