After I bought my first loft in downtown Chicago, I spent any lunch hour I could sneak out of the office shopping for it. On my wish list was this molded plywood chair by Charles and Ray Eames. Originating in 1946, it’s still a timeless classic today. In fact in 1999 it made Time magazine’s “Best of the Century” list for design, beating out the Swatch watch, which was a runner up. Alas, I sold my loft before I ever acquired the chair. I wanted it in cherry red back then, but I think I am leaning towards walnut now. How about you? What color would you pick?
