Product Description

This is a gorgeous pair of used, seafoam Herman Miller Eames side shell chair with a new walnut wood dowel base. The shell consists of a marvellous, highly sought-after seafoam green, with subtle grey tones combined with natural walnut wood. Seafoam has proven to be very desirable, and this pair will be a fantastic addition to the comfort of your home.

The Eames shell series chairs really don’t need any introduction. One of the original colours Charles and Ray used when producing these chairs, this colour first was introduced back in 1952/53 and remains very popular, and much desirable shell to own, truly highlighting the versatility of these chairs. 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. This version of the Seafoam chair displays this perfectly. Herman Miller, with the design power of Alexander Girard, later introduced upholstered versions of the shells which were finished in either Girard’s own patterned fabrics or in vinyl.

Individual Characteristics

This beautiful, pair of original seafoam DSW side shell chair is slightly discolored, with 3 of the shells having watermarks- further images are available upon request. Despite some minor marks and scratches, the chair remains in good condition, with the shell still polished nicely.  

The Herman Miller stamp patent label indicates it is was manufactured around 1957-1959

Investment Value

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 if you consider the discounted price for two!
