Eames House Wall

The Eames House was the home of Charles and Ray Eames. They were most well known for their work in architecture and modern furniture design and then in the production of short films (Powers of Ten). The Eames Foundation website described their design this way:  Charles and Ray proposed that the home they designed would be for a married couple working in design and graphic arts, whose children were no longer living at home. They wanted a home that would make no demands for itself, and would serve as a background for, as Charles would say, “life in work” and with nature as a “shock absorber.”
