Parchment White Herman Miller Eames Original DSW Dowel Side
This is a used, beautiful parchment DSW side chair, with a new light oak dowel base. The parchment colour is highly sought after and is incredibly popular; the nude tone of this chair, with speckles of orange tinge, creates an excellent rustic style. Whether your carpet is white, or you have a wooden floor, this chair will be a perfect resident in your homes.
The Eames shell series chairs really don’t 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 versions were introduced by Herman Miller a little later using fabrics and textiles designed by the esteemed designer Alexander Girard.
Due to its vintage qualities, there are some scratches on the surface and around the edges, with an orange tinge on the fibres of the shell chair- further images are available upon request. Despite the marks, the chair remains in good condition, with the shell still brilliantly shining- a very good investment regardless.
The shell is an early Herman Miller example, it has sadly lost its original patent label.
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, and even though it may not be considered as a rarity, this pair is definitely a must-have if you consider its vintage quality.
