Husband-and-wife design team Charles and Ray Eames’ legacy is encapsulated in their iconic furniture designs. The Eames Lounge Chair is part of the Museum of Modern Art’s permanent collection and is featured in a number of other museums throughout the world. The couple, shown above in their Pacific Palisades, California home in 1958, are touted as “The Most Influential Designers of the 20th Century” by the Industrial Designers Society of America, and were awarded the prestigious Royal Gold Medal by the Royal Institute of British Architects. Follow in the Eames’ footsteps with these whimsical selections.
