Charles and Ray Eames meet at the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan, which also gave birth to other famous designers like Eero Saarinen and Harry Bertoia. They got married and settled in Los Angelis to work there. In 1945 they found a way to make the plywood molded and create the first product with the manufacturer Evans Priducts: a chair for children and a stool made of birch wood. From there, the family creates the famous armchair and begins the relationship with furniture company Herman Miller. Today, the company is the only one to have a license for the production of the Eames armchair in the United States, made of cherry wood and walnut. In Europe, it is the company Vitra International which has the license of the manufacture of the armchair. And here's how to decorate your home with this designer furniture:
