Classic design for every interior...Eames.

Yesterday was a blur of commitments and rushing about here, there and I didn't get a chance to blog.
And all I could think about from late afternoon onwards is having a bit of a 'power-nap' and a cup of tea...! My ideal location for this moment of indulgence..? An eames lounge chair and ottoman, just like this one.....bliss...!

Charles and 'Ray' Eames were a husband and wife team who, in the 40's and 50's, produced a wealth of furniture, textile and architectural ideas based on the ideal '...better living through better design...'.
Some of their furniture designs are reproduced by Italian company Vitra and, whilst 'pricey', they are a real design investment.
These are a few of my favourite Eames kid's ideas........
