Red Herman Miller Original Eames Brown Cushioned DCW Wooden Dining Chair
This beautiful Eames DCW ‘Dining Chair Wooden’ has been finished in original Herman Miller factory aniline red and distinctive chocolate brown leather cushions. A modern take to a vintage classic; this creates a vibrant finish to this classic piece whilst also giving it a modern twist.
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 a used more modern version of this iconic chair, the chair has natural signs of wear but is in good condition. The back and seat pads are in good condition with no cuts or tears.
The unique red finish is in great condition.
The label indicates this is a newer example of the classic Eames DCW chair by 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, this chair is a reasonable investment which should see steady interest over time.
