The Fabulous Eiffel Chair

My terrible design secret is that I'm not a fan of ALL things Mid- Century.  At least, I usually don't like a whole room full of Mid- Century furniture.  I do, however, like a few pieces mixed into a more traditional or rustic space.  
Case in point: The iconic Eiffel chairs (created by designer and artist duo Charles and Ray Eames) are gorgeous and have become classics.  You, my readers, know this already.  Why don't I see more of these in the homes I have visited?  I'm dying to design a dining room (I have a friend in mind) with these beauties in mind.

A room of contrasts. Blending of old & new, modern & traditional, rustic & refined...
maybe this picture sums it all up. the chandelier, the silver, the country rustic table, and of course the mid-century chairs. Eames for me and Bertoia for Cory.

Do any of you own an authentic or even knock-off Eames?  I'm curious how you have incorporated them into your design.

  1. I think these chairs look great when paired with kind of hugely glamorous items (like the chandeliers above).
