Eames chair

Posted in interiors

I like an eames chair as much as the next man but I know that without a lottery win I wouldn’t be able to afford one….well not a ‘real’ one at least.

Good design should be available to everyone. By structuring the prices of well designed furniture in the realms of luxury products, I believe the possibility of these items to enrich is greatly reduced.

A £6000 pound chair is like a catwalk garment, high fashion but generally open to ridicule. I have no doubt that the Eames chair is a marvel if mid century design but is it worth the money? I think not. Would Mr & Mrs Eames be happy that their creation was only available to those who could afford taste? Again I think not.
