In the two previous interiors I showed you over, my favorite details were the iconic Eames chairs. I cannot give you a rational reason why these design classic pieces are so close to my heart, but they are, indeed. Charles and Ray Eames, a truly great husband-and-wife design team – maybe the best ever – designed dozens of fantastic pieces in the 40’s and 50’s. They contributed remarkably to the field of architecture, exhibition design, graphic design, toy design, and films as well, but people identify them mostly with their outstanding, unmistakable furnitures.
They loved their work, which was a combination of art and science, design and architecture, process and product, style and function. Their unique synergy led to the ‘Eames look’ which was lean and modern, playful and functional, sleek, sophisticated and beautifully simple. The famous Side Chair designed in collaboration with Eero Saarinen (1940), La Chaise (1948), the Wire Chair (1951), the Lounge Chair and Ottoman (1956), the CEO-s’ dream Aluminium Group (1958), and of course the molded fiberglass side chairs and armchairs with both dowel-leg and wire-base options are all part their life-work.
The aim of this post is to simply give you inspiration and show you how expansively the iconic molded fiberglass side chairs and armchairs can be used in restaurants, cafés, bars and in any room of contemporary homes, no matter if it is a living room, an office corner, a bedroom, a dining room or else.
