The ultimate Eames eye candy.

An exceedingly rare colour combination of vintage Herman Miller Eames vinyl arm chairs (magenta and purple greige) on a tandem base. Purple greige and magenta are the two rarest colors in the Eames chair colour palette.

These colors were custom created by Alexander Girard and available for only two years, from 1970-1972 by Herman Miller and never mass produced.

To add to the rarity, these custom colours are on white fiberglass shells, which add the perfect contrast to the bright pop art colors of the vinyl.

Only a handful of these chairs in this color combination have survived.

This set offered is 100% original as ordered from Herman Miller. Eames chair specialists were employed to remove imperfection from the vinyl chairs such as small tears or abrasions. The black strut has been re-enameled and the steel feet reconditioned. Each chair is dated at base and HM logo also on support strut. This set presents very well despite the minor repairs to the vinyl.

Photos can be provided of close ups upon request. Please feel free to ask questions.
