Eames Office: The Source For All Things Eames

Pin it button big

When Charles Eames died, his firm died with him, but the remains of all his work lie carefully tended to by the Eames Office in Los Angeles. Ray Eames (his wife) lived on to beautifully document their life together, and it is her hand that was so instrumental in softening and coloring Eames design sensibility.

The Eames Office is therefore much more than a store. It is a library, a museum and a resource of great value...

Part of it is housed in Charles and Ray's last home (their own design) overlooking the Malibu beaches, which is open to visits, and is remarkably down to earth and casually appointed. Good day trip when in LA.

Shopping is always fun, and if you are looking for Eames classics this is where you should buy them from (instead of DWR). We like the molded plywood coffee table at right ($629). Prices are roughly the same everywhere, and buying from the source is infinitely more pleasing.

In addition to the full line of Eames furniture, the Office sells Ray's textiles, Nelson clocks, tons of Noguchi lamps and all of Charles's movies. And best of all your purchases support the preservation of all the Eames's work. >> EamesOffice.com
