Eames Molded Plywood Lounge Chair
Made from lightweight plywood, this is the chair that Time magazine once declared the "Best Design of the 20th Century."


Charles Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman
Charles and Ray Eames first made the lounge chair and ottoman as a gift for their friend Billy Wilder, the director of Some Like It Hot and Sunset Blvd.


Eames Moulded Plastic Chairs
These were first presented in 1948 at New York's Museum of Modern Art during the International Competition for the Design of Low-Cost Furniture.


The Eames House
The Eames House (aka Case Study House No. 8) is a landmark of mid-20th century modern architecture, located at 203 North Chautauqua Boulevard in the Pacific Palisades neighborhood of Los Angeles.


Hang-It-All Coat Rack
This coat rack perfectly demonstrates the Eames's penitent for play.
