Take a seat…

Take a seat…

May 1, 2012

I’ve been slowly working my way through The Eames documentary that’s streaming on Netflix right now and so far, it’s fantastic.  I’ve always loved Eames furniture and I’m ashamed to say that I had no idea the influence the duo had on American design that goes far beyond furniture.  Most of us are familiar with their iconic chairs but their portfolio is bursting at the seams with a long list of fine examples of modern architecture, short films, exhibitions and the list goes on.  I found their creative process fascinating and respect their simplistic approach to design.  I’ll get into the Eames’ a little more in a few days but for now, let’s talk about chairs.  I’ve mentioned it once or twice before that I happen to love chairs and have a collection of about 20 neatly tucked away in storage.  I don’t usually hesitate if I see a chair for $3.50 at the thrift store especially if it makes a statement like one of these.

Now, I just have to clarify that I have not come across an Eames chair at a thrift store just yet but you will be the first to know.  Enjoy your day!
