Orange Herman Miller Original Vintage Eames DSW Dining Side Chair

Sorry, currently out of stock

Product Description

So, you need a dining chair? This original orange Eames fiberglass side shell chair by Herman Miller on a used, new, light oak DSW ‘Dowel’ base would be perfect. The stark orange shell has a wonderful colour with fantastic visible fibers which are complimented by the light oak of the DSW base.

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. 

Fiberglass originals always have a base colour and gorgeous 'visible' fibers in the shell itself. Upholstered version were introduced by Herman Miller a little later on using fabrics and textiles designed by the esteemed designer Alexander Girard.

Individual Characteristics

In great vintage condition, though will benefit from a small clean. The colour has faded in some small areas of the shell, but it is not bleached through and there is still a strong element of the colour present on the shell.

The newer, replacement Herman Miller DSW base is in good used condition.

Investment Details

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 strong vibrant colour of this particular top will help maintain steady interest.
