A wonderfully restored vintage greige Eames Herman Miller arm shell features original Alexander Girard purple and black check fabric which still looks modern today. The shell sits on a used, newer, RAR rocking bas, complementing the rich colours with its deep wood tone creating a stunning version of this iconic design.
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 greige 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 ‘S’ in the circle indicates the shell was produced in the Summit Plastic’s factory used by Herman Miller.
