I Covet: Eames DSW Side Chair

When Anna asked me to pick my favourite piece of furniture, right away my mind flashed to Charles and Ray Eames’ plastic side chairs. I still don’t own any key pieces that are post worthy, but my dream is to own a set of these.

I chose this chair because of its timeless simplicity. I love the clean lines of the seat and the structural detailing of the base.

Designed in the 1950s, Vitra continues to produce variations of the Side Chair. Although they come in amazing colours, my choice is always the white seat with the maple legs and wire cross struts.
