Seafoam Pair (2) Vitra Original Eames DSW Dining Side Shell Chairs
The most coveted colour for Eames shell chairs, Seafoam is gorgeous and these original Vitra fiberglass ones are no exception on their newer walnut DSW bases. Coupled with the walnut DSW dowel bases; these chairs are the epitome of the timeless and classic piece of designer furniture which has now seen a revival.
Fiberglass was dropped when the shells saw their least popular time, which was in the 1980s. Herman Miller reintroduced production of them out of fiberglass in 2013 whilst Vitra produced them in Polypropylene plastic, that is, until the end of last year.
The classic look of the fibrous finish definitely adds further texture to the strong colour and, being in one of the most popular colours, these are some great chairs to own.
As newer, used, pieces, the condition is very good. The colour is wonderfully deep and there are no dents or cracks.
The Vitra stamp and label confirm their being Vitra produced pieces.
The Eames fiberglass series is one of the most recognizable and iconic designs and they are very popular collector’s pieces. The original vintage versions, especially in Seafoam, are very sought after pieces. As newer versions, these may not be an immediate investment prospect, but, they should not lose their value.
