Broadway Fiberglass Shell Armchair - Dowel Base
This is a Maxwell Blake replica of the designer fiberglass shell armchair with American Walnut dowel base. First produced in 1950, and designed by designer, single shell chairs were a breakthrough in the commercial use of fiberglass-reinforced plastic for seating. The single sculptured chair combined thoughtful engineering with a clean, simple aesthetic. Its landmark design features an organic shape and clean, simple form that sculpts to fit the body. An immediate hit when they were designed, and presented at the Museum of Modern Art in 1948, the chairs have achieved a pervasive presence that proves the staying power of good design, remaining popular today.
Maxwell Blake's authentic-quality reproduction designer shell armchair closely honors the original design, with a classic designer Dowel wood base in a selection of hardwoods. The shell is fabricated in a variety of colorful fiberglass shell options. The durable seating design has many uses in homes or public spaces like the office, cafe, reception area, or training room. With an affordable price tag, quality construction, and stylish design, shell chairs are a top seller at Maxwell Blake especially amongst industry professionals like architects and interior designers.
