Orange Marmalade On Orange Herman Miller Eames Original DSR Side Shell Chair
This is a used upholstered Orange Marmalade Herman Miller Eames chair on an equally matching Orange shell back, complete with a newer black DSR base, also known as an "Eiffel Base". The warm, orange tones complement well with the orange back and this combination makes this chair a fantastic addition to add to your dining room.
The upholstered versions of the Eames shells were designed with the help of the Eames’s great personal friend Alexander Girard, who became the head of textiles at Herman Miller and introduced the Eameses to Herman Miller.
Herman Miller faithfully reintroduced the fiberglass shell and with it maintained the upholstered options for them. The options available are still numerous, available in various fabrics in various colors.
As a vintage chair, this DSR dining chair is in great condition. This orange upholstered DSR chair will require minor cleaning on the fabric - images are available upon request.
The Herman Miller and the ‘C' Cincinnati Milacron stamp indicates that it was manufactured between 1958-1965.
An Eames shell is a coveted piece. A simultaneous artistic piece whilst being an ergonomic design has helped maintain their interest. Of course, factors such as age, condition and even color can affect how much interest these pieces gain with original Zenith pieces commanding a respectable price. A second-generation DSR side shell with such a distinct color is absolutely worth the investment, especially considering that the base is relatively new.
