Olive Green Herman Miller Vintage Eames DSW Side Shell Chair
An original, vintage Herman Miller Olive Green Eames DSW Chair with an eye catching gold tinge to the fibres is complimented by the used light maple DSW base. A rather unique finish to this chair top makes it a rarer version of the iconic chair to own.
The history of these chairs has been well versed, along with their versatility, and they are very popular today due to this. This particular example lives up to the original ambition of Charles and Ray since it is of the earlier, original production style and is still as strong as the day it was made. Older versions of the tops are denoted by their highly textured fibrous finish in the tops, though this has the added quality of the golden tinge to it.
The nature of these chairs means they are capable of being used anywhere you choose, as dining chairs, living chairs or even as office chairs and this gorgeous chair will adorn whichever environment you choose to place it into.
The side top is in very good condition for its age with only some light marking evident, commonplace with the long life this chair has had. It does have a cut on one edge which has taken a small section from it. The integrity of the chair is still excellent but it visually impairs the chair slightly - price reflects this.
The golden fibres really sets this chair apart from the rest and some light cleaning will help it sparkle again.
The investment value of these beautiful chairs depends on many factors: the age and condition of the shell, the rarity of its colour, the age of the base and where the shell was produced. Whilst all of the shell chairs are viable investments, this piece rates higher due to its colour and highly textured finish making it a slightly rarer version.
