Roundup: Eames Molded Plastic Chair Inspiration

Whether you're in love with the Eames Molded Plastic Chair or over the hype, it is silly to argue the fact that they are an inspired and iconic piece of design that will be around for a long time. Here are a few of our favorite images inspired by and including the pinnacle piece.

1 This image from Inhabitots simply puts a huge smile on our face. We love the lighthearted and innocent appreciation of this classic chair.
2 Painter Nate Ronniger creates bold and graphic pieces that applaud some of the most iconic furniture of the 20th century. The Eames chair is no exception, as seen at the Wally Workman Gallery in Austin, Texas.
3 While this image isn't a piece of fine art, or particularly beautiful, we love the idea of the Eames rocker as a front porch fixture. Perhaps our Southern roots give us a finer appreciation for the patio rocker, but we think this is a great hybrid between tradition and modern design. Seen at Velocity.
4 Renata, a flickr member, creates photographs that include dolls (Blythe and Blair, to name two) in different settings around the world and in the studio. We love this image of "Blair and her new chair" that includes a doll-sized Eames rocker.
5 Directly from the Eames Office website, we've found this gorgeous 1954 photograph of a "Stack of Fiberglass-reinforced Plastic Chairs" that is stunning and perfectly emphasizes the architectural characteristics of the chair.
