I recently just finished reading Eames: Beautiful Details. It was an incredible and inspiring read, although truthfully most of it was pictures. It was about the work of Charles and Ray Eames who were furniture designers, among many other things. Actually, it was incredible to see how much they created beyond just furniture, like films, toys, and artwork.
It got me thinking about some truly iconic furniture designs since pretty much everything that Ray and Charles Eames created is now considered iconic. Here are some of my absolute favorite iconic furniture designs.
The Eames Lounge Chair by Charles and Ray Eames, the Eames Molded Chair by Charles and Ray Eames, the Swan Chair by Arne Jacobsen, the Egg Chair by Arne Jacobsen, and the Vitra Noguchi Coffee Table by Isamu Noguchi
As all of these are iconic and original designs, they are all quite pricey. These aren't budget-friendly pieces. These are designed with incredible quality, materials, and attention to detail. And while I probably never own an original Eames design (which I am okay with), I can certainly appreciate the beauty of all of these designs!
