'Checker Split' Herman Miller Vintage Eames DSR Side Chair With Alexander Girard Upholstery
A combination of a vintage Herman Miller Eames DSR chair beautifully upholstered in original, immaculate, Alexander Girard fabric called 'Checker Split'.
This mesmerizing and yet perfect fabric finish compliments the black shell and the black used DSR base creating a truly stunning chair. Eames requested Girard join Herman Miller’s design team in 1952 and as soon as he did he began producing new and interesting fabrics to adorn Herman Miller’s wide range of items.
The Eames side shell was new at this point and so the inclusion of upholstered versions widened the choices available, both for the arm and side variants, creating a visually stunning and very comfortable versatile chair.
The fiber shell is 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 this represent a good value investment.
