An example of a used, vintage buttermilk ochre Herman Miller Eames side chair, with a matching light oak dowel base. This light and airy ochre side shell make a wonderful dining chair, a versatile colour that will suit any interior from rustic to urban.
The Eames shell series chairs really do not 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. The upholstered version was introduced by Herman Miller a little later on using fabrics and textiles designed by the esteemed designer Alexander Girard.
As a vintage chair, this DSW does display minor marks due to its age. The colour of the chair is actually lighter than the one pictured, additional photos are available upon request. This chair as a whole is in a fantastic condition still, especially if you consider the stability of the brand new base.
The circled S logo denotes its origin as the Summit Plastics factory and was made around 1959-1989.
