A pair of used, original, vintage and perfectly aged navy blue Herman Miller Eames shell shell chairs, completed with used, natural walnut wood DSW dowel bases. This iconic chair has a deep, ocean blue tones which compliments well with the beautiful walnut base, a colour that is a must-have for a very colorful interior.
The Eames shell series chairs really don’t need any introduction. With early prototypes beginning in the late 1940s, 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 on using fabrics and textiles designed by the esteemed designer Alexander Girard.
These used navy blue with light oak dowel base is in excellent condition despite its use, with no external marks. The base is of a newer base, therefore it has great stability. The bases are newer, therefore they have great stability. Please note, the wood is slightly darker than in the pictures and they are finished with black feet, not white.
