This is a fabric design by Charles and Ray Eames. They were modern artists of the 1940s who specialized in architectural, fabric, graphic and furniture design. Many of the contemporary designs they made popular are still used today. One of their greatest achievements was the Eames Case Study House. Designed completely by Charles and Ray Eames it was part of a series of houses built to show that style and design could be combined with functionality. Every wall, piece of furniture and artwork was designed by the Eames’. The house was built from pre-fabricated steel intended for industrial design and is considered a milestone of modern architecture.
