Product Description

An example of an original light parchment Herman Miller Eames fiberglass shell chair, with brilliant fibrous details, complete with a natural, maple DSW base. This particular parchment is of a lighter shade of parchment, almost a cream-like colour, and it would look fantastic with a minimalist 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' fibres 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.

Individual Characteristics

The colour is very consistent but there is a small crack in the side of the shell which is shown in the pictures - price does reflect this.

The logo on the underside indicate that this shell is an early Herman Miller shell produced by them between 1958 and 1959.
