Orange Herman Miller Original Eames DSW Side Shell Chair

We have 1 in stock.

Product Description

This is a used, original Herman Miller Eames dining chair- the shell has detailed fiberglass marks, attached to a natural light oak dowel base to create a perfect dining chair. This deep orange tones will add some vibrancy and fun to your dining room, particularly if you have a pair or a set of these.  

The Eames shell series chairs really do not 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. 

Herman Miller faithfully reintroduced the fiberglass version of the iconic Eames shell chair to re-capture the original style the vintage variants display. The wonderfully textured fibers help define the colour whilst giving the shells a sense of depth in their design. 

Individual characteristics

This orange dining chair has a new, light oak dowel base; therefore, the stability of the chair is still very good despite its age. As it is a vintage chair, discoloration is a normal occurrence, especially on the chair seat top. The shade of the shell may be slightly different to the picture listed so further images are available upon request.

The 'C' with the star indicates this shell originates from Herman Miller's Cincinnati factory. 

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 color, the originality of the base, the age and of course the maker are those that determine. This orange colour is desirable, however as it is slightly discolored it may not be valued highly. The chair is still a good investment regardless.
