Eames arm shell chairs – retro turquoise – set of 4 by Krueger
I have a hard to find set of 4 bright turquoise Eames shell chairs. These are Krueger Metal Products versions of these chairs. Technically knock offs, but they super high quality and very hard to tell from the originals. The only major drawback is they don’t fit on replacement bases. But, as a bonus, the Herman Miller versions never came in this color, so they have their own, rare charm.
I bought these chairs in about 1998 in NYC. They were originally from Ohio in some sort of government building, bought at a government auction by a dealer.
They are super cool. I’ve used them all this time, and now that we’ve moved, it’s time to change our look. Our loss is your gain. These are especially great with kids – impossible to fall out of and impossible to break or stain.
As for condition, there are a few scratches and small stains what have you – they have been well loved for years and years. They could use a good cleaning – I haven’t really tried to polish them much. Even so, they are smooth and shiny – they don’t have that “old fiberglass” look. The weld on one of the chairs broke and was professionally fixed, now it is the strongest one.
We are located in San Mateo, < 20 min from the city and moments off 280. Super easy to get to. I’m sad to see these go, but it’s time. Make an offer!
