A wonderfully restored vintage black Eames Herman Miller side shell features original Alexander Girard purple and black check fabric which still looks modern today. The shell sits on a used, newer, black DSW Dowel Base, complementing the rich colours and creating a stunning version of this iconic chair.
The shell chair saw much success mainly through its adaptability and almost indestructible design. The introduction of a range of colours and, a little later on, upholstered options, ensured their popularity grew. This popularity maintained until the 80s, but since then has seen a resurgence.
This is a great example of a very unique finish. The black shell is in good vintage condition with no cracks or dents and the renewed fabric is in good condition too with no cuts or tears.
The ‘Herman Miller’ oblong embossed logo indicates the shell was one of the last shells produced by Herman Miller before they stopped production.
