Product Description

Some excellent vintage, original, Eames side chairs for Herman Miller look fantastic in greige and sat upon their flattering used, newer, walnut DSW dowel bases. Greige side shells are a highly coveted colour for the Eames shell chairs and this version is in excellent vintage condition.

The Eames shells require little introduction with prototypes beginning in the 1940s, production began in 1950. Arm shells were the first to be produced and the side shells were introduced in 1952/1953. Greige was one of the first colours the original shells was produced in and has proven to be an excellent collector’s piece. The earliest examples are defined by their highly fibrous finish adding an extra depth to the colour of the shell.

Individual Characteristics

As a highly coveted colour, these shells are some fantastic examples to own. The chairs do show some natural signs of wear around the edges but are in great vintage condition. The colour of the shells is slightly lighter than is seen in the images so more pictures are available upon request.

The ‘C’ with five-pointed star indicates these shells originate from Herman Miller’s Cincinnati factory between the years 1965 and 1978.
