Schooled in Eames

Furniture & Lighting


Adults of a certain age may find themselves waxing nostalgic at the sight of this classroom desk, which features the classic Charles and Ray Eames fiberglass shell chair, designed for Heman Miller in the early 1950’s. It’s safe to say that no student who sat in one of these American icons could have imagined it residing in the permanent collection of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art some day.

    Love it … but if I said I remember them, I’d be showing my age.

    I have 10 of these chairs, they are awesome! Unfortunately, some have met the fate of the grinder and the desk has been hacked off. Sorry Charles & Ray :)
