I’m Obsessed: Eames Rocker Chair

Herman Miller – The Eames Rocker

Plastic, plywood, play. The fertile, curious minds of Charles and Ray Eames invented the modern American furniture vocabulary. Along with other visionaries like George Nelson, the Eameses brought new materials, new processes, and a new attitude to interior design. And they often did it by playing with form and structure in an inventive, childlike way. Charles encouraged experimentation among his staff, saying that he wanted “to have people working on useless projects. These have the germ of new concepts.”  —HermanMiller.com

“Office” furniture…at Home

I used to have Knoll Flat Bar Brno chairs around my dining table…and  because I think they are so beautiful, it always amazed me when someone who was at my house for the first time would inevitably ask why I had office chairs in my dining room.  Oy Vey!

Fast forward 10 years and although the Brno chairs are gone (I sold them to a client) my house is still a mix of “office furniture” and what one would traditionally categorize as residential furniture.  That juxtaposition of both is what, in my opinion, makes my space a reflection of me.  I love the modern classics and at the same time find myself drooling over a traditional chesterfield sofa..so, in my own house, I’ve decided not to assign labels or function to furniture or lighting…

I think I might need the HM Eiffel chair for my bathroom!
