Charles Eames' Inspiration
(1907-1978)


All items are Charles Eames Inspired designs.

 

Charles Eames was born in 1907 in St. Louis, Missouri in 1930. Charles Eames and his wife Ray are widely accredited with designing some of the Twentieth Century’s most important and modern furniture.

 

Charles Eames was born in the city of St Louis in 1907, he married Ray Kaiser in June 1941.Together Charles and Ray Eames moved to Los Angeles, where initially Charles worked for MGM and Ray for an Architecture magazine. In their free time, Charles and Ray worked together developing new ways of working with plywood – experimenting by making toys, sculptures and of course furniture. The first of their designs were put into production from 1946.

 

Probably the most widely recognised and iconic of their designs was the Eames Lounge chair, designed and first manufactured in 1956. The chair features a mix of luxurious leather and opulent Sculpted ply-wood. Very quickly the Eames lounge chair became a big hit worldwide and is as popular today as it was 50 years ago. Charles and Ray continued to push the boundaries of furniture design throughout their career and moved from plywood to experimenting with glass fibre, plastic and aluminium designs, many of which look as fresh and modern today as when they were designed.

 

Charles Eames died on August 21, 1978 while on a consulting trip in his native Saint Louis. Ray died 10 years later to the exact day.

 

Leaving behind a legacy of designs such as the Eames dining chair, Eiffel chair and a selection of office chairs.
