Enjoyed reading Rachel Stevenson's essay " Living Images: Charles and Ray Eames 'At Home'," published in Perspecta. While the iconic home of the duo, which was built in Pacific Palisades as a part of the Case Study House Program, is perhaps one of the most frequently illustrated houses of the twentieth century, this essay focuses on the famed photograph of the two in their living room. Commissioned for Life Magazine, the photograph acted as a way of spreading not only the fame of the Eamses, but also the new American lifestyle of the postwar era. Their home, Case Study #8, which Eames designed with Eero Saarinen, is seen here as a a symbol of celebrating the ordinary lifestyle, which everyone could relate to. Looking at the photos below, it is clear that the image Eamses sought to project, stood on the line between the star-designers which they were, to the those responsible for creating the casual, ordinary, stylish lifestyle for millions living in the 50s.
