The Eames Exhibit

Yes, I know this is VERY OLD news to most, but I thought I would share it anyways. Besides, I consider this an "oldie-but-goodie" and thought perhaps there may be a few who have not seen the Library of Congress' section on the exhibition titled the "Work of Charles and Ray Eames." If you are one of those few, click here to see it!

The Eames's living room with tatami mats (probably in preparation for a Japanese Tea Ceremony), 1951

Love those windows!

Charles's office, 1976. I always find it interesting to see the work space of other artists.
