Eames fans, get ready: an auction of rare Eames furniture pieces is coming this year. Showcasing the JF Chen collection, the auction will be hosted by Chicago-based Wright Auctions in September.

Curated by expert Daniel Ostroff, there will also be a rare set of six rosewood DCM chairs and an early red DCM, a match for a similar piece currently on display at Yale. There's also work from Charles' collaboration with Eero Saarinen for MoMA's 1941 Organic Design Competition, and pieces designed for the Valastro family.

The collection will be photographed and used as the basis for an online reference on the official Eames site.
