Eames Hang It All

Charles and Ray Eames designed the Hang it All in 1953 for Tigrett Enterprises Playhouse Division. It almost seems a shame to cover it up – it is more like a piece of sculpture. Believe it or not, it is only about $150 for this beautiful little piece of modern design history.

Reclaimed Wood

 

A simple fallen log really isn’t… all that time and history wrapped up as only nature can. Though there are many options for green or sustainable furniture out there, not much is as appealing as the real thing. This piece, and others like it, are pieces of reclaimed wood , taken from the forest floor and repurposed as a small table or bench.

Paco Capdell Eboli Dining Chair

Borrowing from the past is nothing new – doing it well is always cause for celebration. Vicente Soto borrowed design elements from the 18th century to create Eboli Dining Chair for Paco Capdell, Spain. The oval back juxtaposed against the angular seat and arms creates a modern, geometric dining chair. At approximately 20″ wide and deep, Eboli is on the petite side, something I really love in a dining chair.
