Score. Herman Miller Eames Shell Rolling Office Chair.

I scored this fabulous Herman Miller Eames shell chair on rolling casters yesterday.  It's purple vinyl!  Gotta love that.  It's in great condition except for a small tear on one arm rest. Without that it would be nearly flawless.    A huge plus is it's surprisingly comfortable.

The dilemma unfolds....  I bought it with the intention of putting it in my Etsy shop, but like a lot of pieces I buy with the intention of re-selling, I get it home and then want to keep it.  I'm sure you fellow MCM lovers can relate, you find an original piece that you admire; of course you want to keep it. But, at the end of the day, my business is to sell.  I can't keep everything.  Great example is the Arka Windsor chair I found by chance and now it's sitting in my entry way.  Probably half of my finds actually make their way to my shop.

What do you think of this purple lovely?

The white areas are simply reflection of light, not damage. 
Pretty cool huh?

So what's the story...how'd you score the Eames / Miller chair? Where'd it come from? Also, does it recline like the one in my icon?

Oooo, that would be tough to part with. Looks like it is in fantastic condition.

My vote is for keeping. Like you, I know we are in business to sell, but there's sooooo much I want for myself, and some of it is really hard to let go.

Love the purple! I like my red/orange pair but purple would be even better. I have no purple whatsoever in my house - used to be my favorite color though.

Mr. Mod, not it does not recline. I wish it did!

I would so keep it. It won't be very often, if at all, that you will come across one like that so I think, if it was me, I would regret selling it. I have the same delimma - I buy what I love and often it is hard to sell it. Sometimes, though, you just have to hold on to your treasure for yourself!
