Red Vinyl Pair (2) Herman Miller Original Vintage Eames DSW Side Shell Chairs
A pair of original Herman Miller red vinyl upholstered Eames side chairs with grey shell are not for the faint hearted, especially on their black DSW bases! This unique combination really looks good, especially on the black DSW base. They will adorn any dining table, quietly sit in any living space drawing attention from anyone who enters the room or even brighten up an office space with their rich deep colour. Typical of the 70s, the vinyl finish is cushioned providing a comfortable seating experience whilst providing an easily cleanable surface.
These chairs represent a slightly modern approach to the upholstered shells Charles and Ray designed and the vinyl finish was applied to both the side and arm shell variants and the arm version was also made available with a combination of a fabric seat with vinyl backrest and arms. The upholstered designs were constructed with the help of the famous Alexander Girard who helped design a wide variety of colours and fabrics for the Eames shells.
These eye-catching chairs are in excellent condition. The vinyl is in good condition with no marks or cuts whilst the grey shells are also unmarked.
The ‘S’ within the circle indicates the shells originate from Herman Miller’s Summit Plastics factory.
Eames shell chairs vary in their investment interest depending on many factors. The main few are the age, condition, colour and origin of the shell alongside whether it is on its original base. These particular examples are a rather unique finish and, given the condition they are in, they should see a good deal of appreciation.
