Saving the Eames House

EamesPrints2

Unfortunately,  the Eames family appears to have run into hard times. The Eames Foundation is selling these 4 original limited-edition prints to help preserve  Charles’ and Ray’s historic mid-century modern home in LA. For every $75 print sold, Herman Miller and Vitra will provide matching donations.

How often does owning a rare piece of artwork also give you a chance to play a part in architectural history? If you haven’t seen the house, it is super cool.

P.S. apparently there is also an Eames documentary, The Architect & The Painter. Have you seen it yet?

  1. I have not seen the documentary yet, but it’s been on my To See list for AGES now. I’d love to own one of those prints! Thanks for sharing.
