Make sure to add the Eames House, Case Study #8 to your must see list while in LA. In the latter half of the 20th century, the husband and wife team of Ray and Charles Eames had a tremendous influence on design in the United States. Their creativity touched the design area of furniture, films, museum exhibitions, graphics, industrial design, photography, toys and architecture. The house was one of 25 homes built as part of the Case Study Program from the mid-1940’s to the mid-1960’s through the efforts of Joseph Entenza, publisher of Arts and Architecture Magazine. The Eames liked it so much that they moved in themselves. It is well-worth the drive to 203 Chautauqua Blvd., in Pacific Palisades, to see the grounds and easily view the interior of the house from the outside. Reservations are required. Interior tours are available but are expensive.
