I swiped this screen shot from somewhere awhile back and stupidly thought I’d remember where I found it. Of course I did not – if this is from your site please let me know so that I can credit and link over to you. I think it’s a vintage Eames photo and I thought I might have swiped it from flickr member (and grandson of Charles and Ray) eamesd. This then led me over to his flickr page where I was sucked in for over an hour but never found the shot. The point is, I just love the way this photo is styled. While the photo is about a modern chair, it’s sitting in a room with a, dare I say, Shabby Chic kind of floor, surrounded by an asterisk of interesting objects that form straight lines radiating out from the chair. It’s a perfect combination of old and new, and shows how neutrals can accentuate a rich variety of textures. If the photo is vintage, that typewriter is probably high tech, but it still works in the shot today.

Panton and Eames, Kostel sv. Bartolom?je
So, I guess I am a little out of the loop as this may have been passed around in 2007…but today I came across these images of St. Bartholomew’s Church in the Czech Republic designed by Jakub Berdych under the Qubus Studio umbrella (the same group who make the Boot Vase). What a mix of old and new! Rows and rows of Panton chairs punched with a crucifix and the clergy at the front get Eames chairs.

A very quick deviation from the Organization Blog Fest…

I spotted this on the SF/Bay Area Craigslist last night and just have to share:

Herman Miller Eames Chair – $75 (berkeley north / hills)

“Get it while it’s hot.”

For those of us who are process oriented and like to see how things are made, here is a great vintage video detailing the creation of an Eames Shell Chair. Just as a heads up, the video is a bit long and perhaps dry to some, but luckily they included great tunes to keep you enthralled…

Thanks to NotCot.org who spotted this video on ArchDaily.com
