appreciating design: eames

9 Jan

i’ve always loved the eames lounge (as it is officially known as)

but my husband revived my interest.  his father has one and it has always been something that ROF aspired to own.  they were first released in 1956 and used molded plywood and leather.  herman miller continues to produce the lounge and other eames furniture.

eames is actually a husband/wife team of Charles and Ray.

they met while studing at cranbrook academy in bloomfield hills, michigan.  i had some friends that went there too.  uncanny.

today, i’m appreciating the look of the eames lounge chair – at the top of the appreciator’s and ROF’s wish list!

i found this nifty slipcovered eames lounge at apartment therapy

every room needs a “signature” piece.  a huge piece of artwork, a different rug, a piece of furniture.  and i can picture his/her eames chairs in the future!

check out all these chairs and where i got them from and more here.
