For Your Inspiration: Chairs

I have a thing for beautifully designed chairs.
Last month I had the great pleasure of visiting the Milwaukee Art Museum.
A whole building full of amazing artwork and I am completely absorbed by chairs.

Just love these. The little Eames side chair is my favorite and something I aspire to own someday. I was introduced to the Eames' work a few years ago in a design history class and fell in love with both their design aesthetic and the way they lived their lives. Oh to have known Charles and Ray Eames. Now that would have been something!
