1956 Pair of Herman Miller Eames DKR-1 Wire Dining Chairs w/ Orange Bikini Pads
Listed for sale is a vintage pair of Eames DKR-1 wire dining chairs with orange bikini pads, produced circa 1956. The DKR was designed by Charles and Ray Eames, produced by Herman Miller. The black wire bases and seats are all in very good condition for their age and are structurally sound. The vinyl (naugahyde) bikini pads show a nice patina with sought after and original horsehair backs. These early examples feature both the horsehair backs and early Venice, California production labels. The pads show signs of wear and use, though present very nicely.
In addition to these two, there is an additional set of four DKR-1 dining chairs with dark blue bikini pads (sold separately). The six chairs came from the same estate.
