1 x Herman Miller Vintage Original Eames La Fonda Arm Shell Chair - White
This beautiful Eames La Fonda arm chair has a stunning combination of white base and top. This chair is a gorgeous example of this fantastic vintage design. This all white beauty has the grace and charm as a swan!
The La Fonda series of arm and side chairs came about through a specific commission by Alexander Girard. Girard (Herman Miller's chief textile designers) had been hired to design the interior of the La Fonda Del Sol restaurant in New York City. Girard commissioned the Eames to produce a special series of their fiber shell chairs but with lower backs and arms with the brief that they would not protrude higher than the table they were serving. Thus in 1960, the La Fonda series was born.
In fantastic vintage condition.
The fiber shell is in great condition with no cracks or chips.
The white La Fonda Base is in excellent condition.
The La Fonda series is certainly rarer than the shell chair range but is also less well known. Really good examples of these chairs have a high investment potential, due to rarity and the quality of the design.
