At A Glance: The Eames Upholstered Molded Fiberglass Side Chair with Wire Base is an iconic piece of American design history. While you've often seen the side chair in school rooms and auditoriums, the Eiffel-Tower base version is in its element in the home. Mid-century authenticity has never been more accessible - or comfortable with upholstery. Using a new process for creating fiberglass without the harmful glues of the past, Herman Miller has returned the Shell Chairs to their heritage. The Eames' would be pleased.
