Everyone has heard of Charles and Ray Eames. My first introduction was in high school when I watched Powers of 10 (available at the website with background on Wikipedia). Besides making an absolutely awesome film about space and distance, they were incredible designers that will re-appear on this blog as I come across the timeless classics. Perhaps their most classic piece is the 1956 Eames Lounge Chair which runs more than $3,500 but my most recent favorite is the Eames Aluminum Groups Chairs available at Herman Miller for about $1,749 (depending on the many customization options). Herman Miller is known for their ergonomic, earth-friendly, and innovative designs that aren't for the thrifty but made to be timeless.
