This is a pair of used, light seafoam Herman Miller Eames side shell chairs with a new walnut wood dowel base. The shell consists of a marvellous, highly sought-after seafoam green, with subtle grey tones combined with a natural walnut wood creates a very modern chair. Light seafoam DSW has always been very popular for decades, and these chairs are no exception.
The Eames shell series chairs really don’t need any introduction. With early prototypes beginning in the late 1940's, production began on the Eames' dream of 'chairs for the masses' in 1950 with the arm and then the sides later in 1952/53. The original and vintage fiberglass chairs were so versatile and so modern that they only increase in popularity as the years go by.
Fiberglass originals always have a base colour and gorgeous 'visible' fibers in the shell itself. Upholstered versions were introduced by Herman Miller a little later using fabrics and textiles designed by the esteemed designer Alexander Girard.
This beautiful, original light seafoam DSW side shell chairs are slightly discoloured, a normal occurrence with its age, and further images are available upon request. Despite some minor marks and scratches, the chairs remain in good condition, with the shell still brilliantly shining- a very good investment regardless.
The Herman Miller stamp suggests that it is was manufactured around 1959-1989
