Eames molded plastic chairs are not cheap but they are a truly timeless classic. They were first designed in 1948 and they continue to look contemporary 60+ years later. They are investment pieces – the kind you know you can buy now and that will still be current and stylish for years to come.
The colorful dining room above is one that I found while pursuing the image bazaar and procrastinator’s heaven that is Pinterest. I love how the chairs were cozied up with furry covers and the juxtaposition of the modern chairs against the old farmhouse table. The colors and patterns of the rugs and pillows brighten everything up and add a global chic element that is both fun and sophisticated. I could live in this dining room! The Eames chair is so versatile that it can also work in a very minimalist setting like the image below. Personally, I love both of these dining rooms. What do you think? Are you a color-lover or do you like the simplicity of white and wood?
