Even if you  like the Aeron by Hermann Miller better, there’s no getting around it, the Eames chairs are legendary.

Here’s a look at just a few of them.

Eames’ Mid-Century Modern furniture can be combined with many different styles, inlcuding this one that closely resembles the new 2013/14 Trend Artistic Expression.    Everything comes around…especially good design.   Photo © Ailine Liefeld
