About Charles and Ray EamesView Profile »
Charles Ormand Eames, Jr. (American, 1907-1978) and his wife Bernice Alexandra “Ray” Eames (American, 1912-1988) are designers known for their contributions to modern architecture, furniture, industrial and graphic design, fine art, and film. Charles Eames studied at Washington University, St. Louis, where his views were considered too modern. In 1938, he resumed his studies at the Cranbook Academy of Art, where he became a teacher and head of the Industrial Design Department. Eames, together with Eero Saarinen, designed prize-winning furniture for The Museum of Modern Art, New York’s “Organic Design in Home Furnishings” competition. Eames married his wife Ray in 1951, and with her, he designed and built the groundbreaking Eames House, Case Study House #8 as their home and as part of the Arts & Architecture magazine’s “Case Study” program. The home is considered a milestone of modern architecture.Interested in consigning works by Charles and Ray Eames? Learn more »
