Have you or will you be watching the 10 Homes That Changed America special on PBS?  If you’re a fan or appreciate
modern design furniture, it might be worth taking a look.  The majority of the homes showcased in the special are located in Los Angeles and one of the homes featured is none other than the innovative landmark Eames House designed by husband and wife team Charles and Ray Eames.

Built in 1949, the Eames House was originally meant as one of 25 case study houses, but would eventually serve as the couple’s home and design studio.  The home was originally conceived as a collaborate effort between Charles Eames and fellow modern design pioneer Eero Saarinen using nothing but off the shelf parts that were obtained from steel fabricator catalogs before Charles and his wife re-envisioned the project.

Upon its completion the Eames House would quickly become the most successful and iconic of the 25 cast study houses that were ultimately built.  It serves as an architectural statement and is also well-known for being a functional living space that also emphasizes comfort.  Charles and Ray Eames moved into the house in Christmas Eve of 1949 and would live there until their deaths in 1978 and 1988, respectively.
