The orignial Eames chair was designed by American designer and filmmaker Charles Eames in 1956. It was inspired by the traditional English Club Chair, a leather armchair made with class and comfort in mind. It was the first luxury chair the Eameses designed, the rest were affordable pieces for modern people. Interestingly, Eames also designed the original mastermind chair, his mid-century modern furniture have unkowningly been integrated into many British homes.

This mid-century Pierre Paulin Tulip chair was upholstered for a
client using our vibrant Vanguard Vibe British Velvet fabric.

The Eames House, which is also known as Case Study number 8 House is the pinnacle of mid 20th century architecture,  located in the Pacific Palisades, LA, it was the home and studio of Charles and Ray Eames. The case study was a practice of using wartime and industrial materials, and placing them in an economically-priced house. They designed and redesigned the home as a continual project, always putting the visitor's needs into consideration when designing furniture or space.

Our own Eames inspired chair and foot stool can be upholstered using any Velvet Fabric of your choice, it will bring a pop of colour and a mid century
modern twist to any room.
