Fresh from Victoria

1) Eames at home

We finally had our new guest arrive from Gabriel Ross in Victoria, British Columbia – a beautiful Charles and Ray Eames lounge chair, first designed in 1946.  He’s taken up residence in our bedroom and looks fabulous. A George Nelson platform bench is also somewhere on route for the den, which also first premiered in 1946.

2) the chair arrives on the doorstep; 3 & 4) G unveils it

G and I would readily admit we have an addiction to chairs but hey, we could have worse addictions.

But you know, the work of Eames, Nelson, Mies van der Rohe and the like are utterly modern, even by today’s standards. Classic design is timeless. Me loves it!

    OMG! I am dying in my chair without absolute envy. I point out things to my man whenever we walk into DWR or Ligne Roset, and he’s just like “What? How much? That’s crazy…”. Ugh.I will live vicariously through you. :o)BTW, speaking of Nelson, I’ve been dying for the Swag Chair and desk. But man, the Eames is just perfect anywhere. Any thoughts on the Saarinen’s Womb Chair? I think it’s fab, but it’s either that or the Eames Lounge Chair & ottoman. Ah! I’m over excited that there’s someone out there that actually likes to spend on worthy pieces of furniture! :o)

    I’m pretty sure when i get my own place, I’ll have a chair addiction, or more like a furniture addiction …In any case, yes, absolutely we must get together and you could borrow another drama for the next 3 years! haha … but really, it’s been awhile so we must catch up.

    I tend toward the classic style. In Florida I am not sure there is an “in” style.

    You’re right – it is an iconic design that will be beautiful throughout the decades to come.
