♥ better together.

 are you also the distracted sort who love to watch endless movie streams on netflix?
well, if so, i have a film recommendation for you- eames: the architect and the painter (2011) 
is about the wife & husband duo behind some of the world's most popular chairs.

they look familiar, right? 

created in the 1950's to fulfill a need for furniture that
could be made inexpensively- but well, eames furniture pieces
are about as modern looking today as they were back then!

they were inseparable and everything they did was truly a combined effort of all their talents.
for example, the eames house, is a perfect combination of architecture and art.

and their office was considered a fun house by all who worked for them. LOVE!

4 ♥ love notes.:

  1. The Eames have been such an huge influence on my decorating style. I like their streamlined yet feminine lines to their furniture, and their love of color!

    1. aww, methinks you need to do an interior design post, martini!

  2. Just found your blog and I love it. Following you now. If you get a chance check out mine:

  3. I LOVED this film, caught it randomly on PBS a few weeks ago. Was floored that a former prof of mine from Tufts was in it- as an Eames paramour!! The scandal of it all.


♥ tell me how you really feel!
