Do these look familiar to you? No? You poor under-achieving design spectator, you. Just kidding! :)
These, young grasshopper, are Eames chairs.
And Eames chairs are the shizz.
"Eames" refers to the fact that they were designed by Charles and Ray Eames, two American designers comme architects comme magi who had their heyday in the middle of the twentieth century. Charles and Ray are not brothers. And, sorry gays, they weren't a couple either. "Ray" actually refers to Bernice Alexandra, and if I were her I would have chosen "Ray" over Bernice Alexandra too.
Charles and Ray Eames were architects who designed many successful spaces such as the Eames House, but the only way that us laymen and women can enjoy their design at home is through their furniture.
And it's expensive.
People collect original Eames pieces, but a quick peak on Craigslist from time to time will reveal an affordable piece in need of a little TLC.
Pop quiz! Can you spot the Eames furniture in the photos?
Ya, so I started you off pretty easy.
A peak inside the Eames House!
(hint, there are several in this photo)
Good for you.
