Red Aniline Pair (2) Herman Miller Original Eames DCW Wooden Dining Chairs
A modern take to a vintage classic. These beautiful Eames DCW Dining Chair Wooden have been finished in their original Herman Miller factory aniline red. This eye-catching colour gives a vibrant finish to these classic pieces whilst simultaneously retaining the wood grain these chairs are famed for.
The moulded plywood chair was the Eames’s true dream. The version they created, whilst absolutely stunning and much loved, was not their initial aim. Instead they dreamed of constructing a chair whose shell was made from 1 piece of moulded wood. After years of designing, but with no way of achieving this, the LCW chair appeared in 1947/48, produced by Evans. A revolutionary chair, it did not gain massive interest straight away, but once displayed in New York the chair became highly sought-after.
The success of the chair encouraged the DCW variant to be born, the Dining Chair Wooden, and also the LCM and DCM, or Lounge Chair Metal frame and Dining Chair Metal frame.
As used more modern versions of this iconic chair, the chairs have quite a few signs of use across the seat top and on the legs. Some of the plywood does display chips. They have been well used and do reflect this, as does the price.
The black label on the underside informs us the chairs are newer examples from Herman Miller.
The Eames plywood chairs have been highly coveted for many years, with original Evan’s produced chairs commanding a high asking price. Being newer, these chairs are a reasonable investment which should see steady interest over time.
