Inspiration: Eames Textile Patterns

18 Sep

“The details are not the details. They make the design.”

“No, Ray is not my brother.” – Charles Eames

Charles Eames (1907-78) and Ray Eames (1912-88) are among the pioneers of modernist industrial design. For over 40 years, Charles and Ray Eames experimented designing compact storage units, collapsible sofas for the home, seating for stadiums, airports, and schools, and chairs for virtually anywhere.

Huge fan of these Eames “jacks”, “dots” or “snowflake” patterns  (I’ve seen it called all three – anyone know the real name?) and got inspired to put them around the house in random places as small accents.
