Inspiration: Eames by Gloria Koenig

One of our favorite resources is a slender monograph by Gloria Koenig titled simply, "Eames." Even though their designs have become ubiquitous, the work of Charles and Ray Eames never ceases to inspire us. We often see their chairs today in minimalist environments, but when we look back on their life's work, we see how easily their furniture blends with everything from high modernism to colorful bohemain...

Gloria Koenig offers a concise, fascinating glimpse into the connections that Charles and Ray Eames drew between furniture, culture, and "whatever caught their interest."
