ADVENT CALENDAR - DAY 7

DAY 7 - EAMES ELEPHANT

I'm a sucker for Charles & Ray Eames' designs. (I already mentioned that on here, didn't I?)
I love EVERYTHING they made, and by everything I really mean everything. My dream would be to live in a house filled with their furniture: the lounge chair, the plastic molded chairs, the bold coat hanger, the desk & storage units, and YES, the elephant. I know, I know, this is a chair made for kids, but frankly, who cares?

Why the elephant when I can pick any of their designs? Well, first: I think not a lot of you acutally know it and second: I saw it on saturday at the local Vitra store (YES, MY BORING LITTLE TOWN HAS A VITRA STORE) and completely fell in love all over again. And then yesterday Bardotty tweeted about getting one for her bébé (jealous!!) so there, that's how that happened.


PS: if you don't know all the furniture Charles & Ray Eames have designed (or if you don't know 'em at all), I strongly suggest you head over to google images, type in 'Charles & Ray Eames furniture' and start making that mental furniture wishlist!
