Light Seafoam Herman Miller Eames Original DSW Side Shell Chair
This is a used, light seafoam Herman Miller Eames side shell chair with a new walnut wood dowel base. The shell consists of a marvelous, highly sought-after seafoam green, with subtle grey tones combined with a natural walnut wood creates a very modern chair. Light seafoam DSW has always been very popular for decades, and this chair is no exception.
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 using fabrics and textiles designed by the esteemed designer Alexander Girard.
This beautiful, original light seafoam DSW side shell chair is slightly discolored, a normal occurrence with its age, and further images are available upon request. Despite some minor marks and scratches, the chair remains in good condition, with the shell still brilliantly shining- a very good investment regardless.
The Herman Miller stamp suggests that it is was manufactured around 1959-1989
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 light seafoam side shell is very popular in its colour and has sold out rapidly before, therefore it is definitely worth the investment.
