Eames: The Architect and the Painter

(photo: First Run Features)

For the design addict, First Run Features is releasing a documentary on Charles & Ray Eames, called Eames: The Architect and the Painter. It is narrated by James Franco, and appears to be a spectacular look at the couple who are largely regarded as pioneers and two of the most influential designers of mid-century America.  

The feature opens November 18, 2011 in Los Angeles. For your own local dates, check the playdates, and you can check out the trailer here

Saarinen Executive Armchairs

I didn't have a chance to snap a 'before' picture, but we reupholstered 4 Saarinen Executive armchairs recently and they are as good as new.

Eero Saarinen designed these chairs in 1957 - the upholstered back shell is a reinforced molded shell with a contoured plywood seat. The metal legs are seamless tubular steel with a polished chrome finish.

Staying true to the original upholstery, we recovered all 4 chairs in Knoll fabric - Stacks, in a slate color.

Custom Leather Ottoman

This is a large, square leather covered ottoman we recently finished for a client in San Francisco. The design is contemporary, with an interesting detail along the bottom. The leather is double top stitched, and from Spinneybeck.

Custom Silk Love seat Sofa

We just finished this love seat sofa for a longtime client. You can see it has an usual shape - the front is dipped, and the arms curve outward.

It was covered in a lovely platinum embroidered silk by Romo Fabrics.

Every detail is hand worked, from the pleated curve of the arm to the curved wood feet that follow the shape of the corners. It's a very feminine piece, perfect for the corner of a bedroom, or boudoir.
