Purple Black Pair (2) Herman Miller Original Vintage Black Eames DSW Dining Side Chairs
A pair of restored, black Eames Herman Miller side shell chair in Alexander Girard purple and black check upholstery with a newer, black DSW base. This deep purple upholstered fabric adds to the vintage style, perfect for those who loves collecting vintage pieces.
The shell chair saw much success mainly through its adaptability and almost indestructible design. The introduction of a range of colours and, a little later on, upholstered options, ensured their popularity grew. This popularity maintained until the 80s, but since then has seen a resurgence.
This upholstered dining chair is still in very good condition; the black shell doesn't display any visible cracks or marks, and the fabric has recently been repaired, therefore it is in great condition. Comes with a newer base, this chair provides great stability.
The ‘Herman Miller’ oblong embossed logo indicates the shell was one of the last shells produced by Herman Miller before they stopped production.
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 colour can affect how much interest these pieces gain with original Zenith pieces commanding a respectable price. A rather novel version such as this should prove to be a good investment piece.
