Eames

Eames has been a major buzz word in the blogsphere for a while now... his chairs are everywhere! I first jumped on that bandwagon about 6 years ago, when I first met Charles and Ray Eames in college. But not as furniture designers, as Architects. Did you know that the dynamic duo was known not just for their furniture; but also their architecture, films, graphic and product design? 
Last year, a movie came out about their importance of their influence on the modern American Life...and its a beautiful picture of the lives of some of the most important designers of our time...  have you seen it?
and my favorite... the Eiffel chair.Which looks amazing with anything, but I really love it with the farmhouse table.

and this amazing house that Gaby blogged about last week, I'm obsessed! Via DS
 I have to stop myself before I buy Eames chairs for every room in my house! Are you as obsessed as I am?

I really do love them! I actually was talking about them today myself, and had to go back and update it by adding a picture of your dining room, it is great!

My grandparents have what I thought was a leather eames lounger that I've always coveted, I finally looked at the underside when I was home last and found it was a reproduction. Needless to say its still a gorgeous piece of furnuture,

Love your blog!
