Eames House - Charles & Raye Eames

The 1940s Eames House showed that with the right amount of ability and careful design, 'off-the-shelf' steel componentry could produce a delightful and thoroughly liveable Californian house.

The picture at right is a 3d rendering of the famous Shulman photograph at left above.

  1. PC, is that photograph at the bottom of the same house? It looks like it, but wanted to be sure. It really is gorgeous. That's the type of space I would want to live in.

  2. Yep, sure is. Is that a deposit check to start work I see heading my way? :-)
