Looks Good: Charles and Ray Eames

July 13, 2009

eames chairAnother weekend out of town! We went to Philadelphia to barbecue with some former UO co-workers near my old South Philly stomping grounds. It has been almost a whole year since being back in Philly so the agenda was to make the requisite rounds of our favorite spots. (You’ll be getting several Philadelphia-inspired posts this week.) In Old City we made the score of the year when we passed (and then pounced on) a Herman Miller edition of the iconic Eames molded plastic chair with Eiffel base being sold for a lark. DWR is still selling reproductions of this beauty but what sets ours apart is that it is an originale and is bic-ballpoint pen blue and has that crosshatch 1970s finish as opposed to the more current powder-coat. It’s just so good.

So all in all, did we have fun this weekend?
