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.

 I have to stop myself before I buy Eames chairs for every room in my house! Are you as obsessed as I am?
