Eames Documentary

So, anyone who knows me knows that the one “thing” that I have wanted the most and will someday own is the Eames Lounge Chair by Herman Miller (second is the Saarinen Tulip Table in marble – yes, I am saving my pennies!).  I know that some people think it’s ridiculous to spend that amount of money on a chair, but let me tell you, it is not just a chair.  It is a work of art.  It is perfectly crafted to fit the human form, and it is gorgeous to boot!  Anyway, I recently watched a great documentary about the genius duo of Ray and Charles Eames called Eames: The Architect and the Painter, and I would highly recommend it to anyone that is interested in design, art or history.  These two were pioneers that forever changed the landscape of modern American design.  Check out the trailer here.

    All I can say is YOU ARE SO RIGHT! That chair is amazing and I hope you get it and the Saarinen table. We were lucky enough to find 3 of those tulip side tables over the years (2 wood, 1 laminate) and they are so perfect (and heavy!) That documentary was amazing! Enjoyed reading your posts.
