On what basis?

Thursday, 8 September 2011

OK, so here's the thing:  we find a number of Eames shell chairs over on that well-known auction website and the low-down is looking good - various colours, but mainly shades of yellow and orange (oooh), fibreglass (aaah), made by Herman Miller (oooh) - and then things take a nose-dive ...... stacking base (errr).  Yeap, you've got it - we're not huge fans of the stacking base.  So, what to do?  Leave the chairs alone and keep on looking, or buy, buy, buy and change the bases?  Decisions, decisions!

  1. My vote is for buying and changing bases too...if the shells are bargain-priced.

  2. Funny, I was just thinking about whether or not I could find bases to buy. I say buy and change bases and show us the end product.

  3. Definitely buy and change the bases. I quite like the H base but I know what you mean.

    If you come across a bargain...buy it!

  4. How fun would it be to have something that can be attached onto the bases.
    Like an a detachable side table or baskets that can hold vases for flowers on either side, or a magazine basket, or a lamp.
