Parchment Herman Miller Eames Original DSW Side Shell Chair
An example of a used, original parchment Heman Miller Eames side chair, completed with chocolate dark polish DSW base. The parchment is of a lighter colour, and this combination alongside the dark dowel base would make a gorgeous addition to the dining room.
The Eames shell series chairs really don’t need any introduction. With early prototypes beginning in the late 1940s, 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' fibres in the shell itself. Upholstered versions were introduced by Herman Miller a little later using fabrics and textiles designed by the esteemed designer Alexander Girard.
This used parchment side chair is in good condition, as it has previously had some repair work done. The fibreglass shell has no cracks, and it comes with a dark polish dowel base in good working condition.
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 parchment colour chair is very popular, making this chair is definitely a must-have if you consider its vintage quality.
