Brilliant Yellow Herman Miller Original Eames DSW Dining Side Shell Chair
An example of a used, original brilliant yellow Herman Miller Eames shell on a beautiful, natural black DSW base. This gorgeous deep yellow is such a fantastic colour to brighten up any interior, whether you buy a pair or a set.
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' fibers in the shell itself. Upholstered versions were introduced by Herman Miller a little later on using fabrics and textiles designed by the esteemed designer Alexander Girard.
This used, brilliant yellow DSW dining chair remains in excellent condition despite its age, with minimal marks and scratches- further images are available and recommended upon request. The newer, replacement Herman Miller DSW bases are in good used condition.
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. The vibrant and distinct colour of this particular top will help maintain steady interest, therefore making this year a fantastic investment.
