Design: The Eiffel Chair by Eames

The Eiffel chair. It’s such a good looking piece of furniture, isn’t it?

There are loads of reproductions out there and plenty of ideas about how to incorporate them into sleek, modern, classic, and traditional spaces. The chair is quite¬†a versatile piece, so it’s little wonder why it¬†has been popular for so long.

A good boy

We’re still into animals this week, and really- what’s not to love about our¬†sweet elephant?

Charles and Ray Eames were apparently really into elephants, having documented circuses and their adventures in India, both of which prominently feature the impressive animal. The Eames designed two prototypes made of molded plywood that was too complicated to produce for sale and so were displayed at the MoMA from 1945-6.

We hear that today, only one of the original elephants remains and is privately held by the Eames family. The copycat toy elephant we’re featuring below is made of white polypropylene and is created¬†by the Vitra Design Museum and made in Germany. A perfect toy for the stylish toddler.
