I Picked Up These Eames Shell Armchair Replicas From (Brasilia Obsessed) Dan During The Swank-A-Rama Rocket Century Sale, But I've Never Given You A Proper Introduction. Status: They Say "Hi!".
I've had this set of Eames replica Eiffel base armchairs available at my booth (44) at the Green Shag Market since I picked them up from Dan (the fella with the killer joint full of Broyhill Brasilia) just heading off on our roadtrip vacation. I just had to pull them out yesterday as I wanted to install the Frem Rojle danish dining chairs into the limited area of my antique mall space.
An out of town buyer has been asking me if they could purchase the set of Frem Rojle teak and
rope dining chairs via credit card through the Green Shag Market. I took the set to my booth to
enable their proxy (a relative who will be transporting them to the buyer later) to look them over
before purchase. It's not a done deal by any means but there has been lots of communication,
and if it all works out this may be another reason to keep a booth space going in the future.
That means that I had to bring these home as there is only so much room in a 6 x 8 booth space.
The good news is that I finally got a chance to shoot them for the blog and craigslist. I'm happy
to still offer the set through the Green Shag Market since they can accept checks, check cards
and credit cards hassle free...oh, and cash too...like me.
I gotta drop by Dan's joint again soon since he must have gotten some amazing new chairs to let
these babies go. They are in great shape for used new chairs. I knew he was making some
changes around his place but I'd love to see what he's been up to. I bet you would too! My tour
of his pad last year has been one of my most popular blog postings garnering over 1600 page
I've always love the shell armchair design and the Eiffel base has always been my favorite, with
the dowel base running a close second. I wish I could justify keeping the set myself. I've just
got too much of a good thing. The best I could hope to use is a pair of them on either side of
our red cracked ice Formica and chrome table that I'm using as a desk. So I might be amenable
to splitting up the set. Who knows?
