A gorgeous example of an early production shell in the lovely made up color of GREIGE! I love that story! Really smitten with how this turned out, it will be the perfect piece to showcase in your space!
The shell: fiberglass is a great neutral color and features snowy fibers in a deep tan/almost brown. The color has nice depth and not a flat tone as some tans are. Wide shock mounts are in great shape, this was on an x base originally. There are 2 small cracks along the front side edges of the seat which I have filled with clear epoxy to reinforce followed by a light sand. Then clear coated all the fiberglass with Penetrol to even out and shine the finish. No stamps or marks in fiberglass as this vintage would have had a sticker only.
I have paired this seat with a beautiful rocker base in black powder coat finish and American walnut runners manufactured in the USA by Modern Conscience. It is beautifully made to exact specifications of the originals and the detail of the black screws made me choose theirs over other reproduction bases. I am very happy with it!
Whether you choose this iconic piece of mid century design for use in a nursery, living room or bedroom, you will definitely find it's utilitarian roots as attractive as it's stylish looks!
