Eames House Visit, Los Angeles CA

While in California recently I had the opportunity to visit Los Angeles and several homes famous for their history in architecture.  It was a great history lesson and a chance to admire work that still has influence today. 

The first home was Case Study House #8 also known as The Eames House designed by Charles Eames.  This house was #8 of a series of home designs part of a Case Study program which began in 1945 by the Arts and Architecture Magazine and proposed modernized living solutions using modern materials and processes. Charles and his wife Ray Eames lived and worked at the home for much of their careers. Charles Eames was also a well known industrial designer and many of his furniture designs are still produced by Herman Miller.  His house and furniture are considered icons of Mid 20th Century modern design and to visit was a real treat!
