Navy Blue Herman Miller Original Eames Upholstered Black RAR Chair
A newer version of the classic, original, Eames arm chair by Herman Miller finished in blue fabric on black shell sat upon a brand new natural walnut RAR base. Herman Miller have faithfully continued to produce the iconic Eames shell as standard fiberglass shells and in a wide range of upholstery finishes.
The novelty of this shell is in its use of a coloured shell; not frequently used on the vintage versions, the use of a coloured shell adds a new perspective to the chairs when combined with the massive array of upholstery finishes still available.
The arm shell is in good used condition. It does show signs of its being used but the fabric is in great condition with no cuts or tears and the wonderfully fibrous black shell has no cracks or dents in it.
The picture of the base varies slightly since the new RAR rocking base is made of walnut wood as opposed to the dark wood, which is slightly lighter with beautiful natural grains.
The embossed logo on the underside of the shell indicates this is a newer, re-introduced, Herman Miller shell.
As a newer example of the iconic Eames fiberglass arm shell, the value will always be worth the investment if you consider the condition of the chair and a new RAR base. It may not be a vintage model, however, if you want a working, sturdy and stylish chair then this chair is a perfect addition to your homes.
