A Pair (2) of Light Parchment Herman Miller Eames Vintage DSW Side Shell Chair
A perfect pair of used Vintage Light Parchment Herman Miller Eames DSW side chairs, with beautiful, natural Light Oak Dowel Base. The light parchment yellow has elements of soft, warm mustard tinge to the chair, giving it a rustic feel. Being one of the first 3 original colours, Parchment has maintained its popularity over the decades, and this set of dining chairs will be a very classy addition to your dining room.
The Eames shell series chairs really don’t need any introduction. With early prototypes beginning in the late 1940's, 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.
Fiberglass originals always have a base colour and gorgeous 'visible' fibres in the shell itself. Upholstered versions were introduced by Herman Miller a little later using fabrics and textiles designed by the esteemed designer Alexander Girard.
Due to its vintage qualities, there are some scratches on the surface, with orange tinge on the fibres of the shell chair- further images are available upon request. The pair itself doesnt quite match, one having a more slight orange tinge to it. Despite the marks, the chair remains in good condition, with the shell still brilliantly shining- a very good investment regardless.
The patent label indicates that this chair was produced around the late 1960s.
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. This parchment colour chair is very popular, and even though it may not be considered as a rarity, this pair is definitely a must-have if you consider its vintage quality.
