'Miller Stripe' Pair (2) Herman Miller Vintage Eames DSR Side Chairs With Alexander Girard Upholstery
These amazing chairs combine an original vintage Eames Herman Miller side shell chair with the dazzling original Miller stripe upholstery by Alexander Girard! Placed on the used black DSR bases, these chairs really are a statement piece.
Charles Eames introduced his friend Alexander Girard to the Herman Miller Corporation, igniting a good many years’ worth of extraordinary textile design. Girard instantly began producing brand new designs for both fabrics and for wallpaper and his love for his friends shell chairs meant it was inevitable that his designs would adorn the iconic shells.
This particularly mesmerizing design was one of many Girard produced that were simply lines, either of alternating colours or using a mixture of bold and fine lines to create some amazing designs. Check out the likes of the ‘Jacob’s Coat’ and ‘Toostripe’ versions of this design style.
The fiber shells are in great vintage condition with no cracks, chips or defects.
The Alexander Girard fabric for Herman Miller is in a great condition with no defects and no lifting.
Eames Shell Chairs vary from 1 to 5 stars for investment. The reasons depend on so many factors but mainly the condition, the rarity of the colour, the originality of the base, the age and of course the maker are those that determine. Excellent examples of a lovely combination such as these represent a good value investment.
