'Mini Check' Herman Miller Vintage Eames DSR Side Chair With Alexander Girard Upholstery
Here we have a stunning Herman Miller Eames vintage DSR eiffel chair in black upholstered in original Alexander Girard fabric called 'Mini Check'.
This hypnotic design was one of many textile fabrics Girard produced for Herman Miller and was used to adorn many of their items. Girard and Eames were great friends, so it was only natural that the two should work together to produce some inspired versions of the iconic Eames chair, which was a coveted piece by Girard.
Fiberglass originals always have a base colour and gorgeous 'visible' fibers in the shell itself. Upholstered version were introduced by Herman Miller a little later on using fabrics and textiles designed by the esteemed designer Alexander Girard.
The fiber shell is in great vintage condition with no cracks, chips or defects.
The used DSR base is in good condition with only natural wear expected with being used.
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.
