Tomorrow afternoon, I’m attending a book signing for “An Eames Primer” at one of my favorite home furnishing stores, Niche. The book was written by Eames Demetrious, grandson of the iconic Charles and Ray Eames. I have been a long time Eames fan, and must confess that I have watched the PBS American Masters documentary “Charles and Ray Eames: The Architect and the Painter” four times. It is truly fascinating and inspiring. I love learning how dependent Charles was on Ray, yet he received the majority of the credit for their work. It was such a different time for women in their day. If you ever have 85 minuets to spare go HERE to watch. You will love it.
Another video I love is rapper Ice Cube celebrating the Eames. I’m a HUGE fan of Ice Cube and love how this video mixes some of my favorite things:
Hip Hop + LA + Design = Bad Ass.
Watch, it’s just a little over 2 minuets.
Have a great weekend!
