Musical Eames Chairs Anyone?

In celebration of today's release of the Eames stamps issued by USPS,  I thought I would post a few photos from the Eames Foundation annual member's appreciation day held this past weekend.  We had a tasty lunch and tours of the home given by the Eames' family was a real treat.  However, the highlight of the day was 'adults only' musical Eames chairs!  Thirty plus people battled it out, but only one took home the grand prize:  photograph #82 from the exhibit at the Eames office of 100 photos for Charle's 100th birthday.

Named in honor of his grandparents, Eames, presents the champion with his prize.

Also, check out Vintage Eames, sponsored by the Eames office.  It offers a wealth of information for anyone out there with vintage pieces.
