Seafoam Herman Miller Vintage Eames Original DSW Dining Side Shell Chair
A wonderful example of a used, Original Herman Miller Eames side shell in a beautiful shade of a dark seafoam. This gorgeous dark shade of seafoam is completed with a newer, used Walnut wood DSW dowel base. The complementary colours make this dining chair a highly sought-after, certainly a piece that will transform your dining room!
One of the original colours Charles and Ray used when producing these chairs, this style of the chair needs little introduction. This colour dates back to the origin of these shells in 1952/53 and still remains to be a very popular, and much desirable shell to own, truly highlighting the versatility of these chairs.
Original fiberglass shells are defined by their base colour which shows the vibrant fibers contained within the shell. This version of the Seafoam chair displays this perfectly.
As these are vintage shells, they will have signs of age and wear, and this chair does appear to have a surface scratch and marks on the edge of the shell and on the seating area- further images are available upon request.
The dowel base is very sturdy and will provide excellent stability.
Eames Side Shells are great investment pieces, but how much of an investment piece relies upon multiple factors; the age of the shell, the rarity of the colour, the manufacturer, the originality of the base and, of course, the condition of the shell. With this piece being a very good condition of the Seafoam version, its investment value is reasonable.
