The modlivin.com Eames Gift Guide. 

  • Almost no other animal enjoys such popularity as the elephant. Admired for its majestic size and loved for its proverbial good-humour, it is part of our everyday experience as a child’s cuddly toy, a storybook character and a majestic creature. Charles and Ray Eames also succumbed to their charms; and, in 1945, designed a toy elephant made of plywood. However, it never made it into mass production. The Eames elephant is now available for the first time in a plastic version for those it was originally intended for: children.  Whether used as a toy (also outdoors) or a decorative item in a children’s room - this friendly-looking animal with its distinctive, over-sized ears is bound to bring cheer and enjoyment to many a child’s and parent’s heart. $320
  • Charles and Ray Eames augmented the interior collage of the Eames house with numerous objects brought back from their extensive travels.  The figure of a black wooden bird - evidently one of their most prized objects of American folk art - has stood in the center of their living room for over 50 years.  Also seen as an accessory in many of the Eames’ photographs, the bird figure has its origins from the Appalachian mountain region of the eastern United States.  Based on the original artifact, and in cooperation with the Eames family, Vitra is now producing the first series of this figure.  Material: solid alder, black lacquer finish, steel wire. $230
  • The culmination of 2 years worth of experimentation, Blik is an award-winning line of surface graphics created by and for people who like to change their mind. These self-adhesive wall decals allow you to easily transform the look of a living or office space in minutes. Affix Blik to any smooth, flat surface such as a wall, window, mirror, ceiling, tabletop or floor. Choose your space, plan the design you’d like to make, and literally, just peel and stick. And when you’re tired of your design, the graphics are removable! (not reusable). Blik is a recipient of the 2004 Product Design Distinction Award for Furniture from the I.D. Design Annual. $46-56
  • Kirsten Bingham of January Jones Prints made these limited edition prints for our Modern Design Series: The Life & Designs of Charles & Ray Eames event. Limited to just a handful each, they are available only by calling the showroom. Also available is a large print featuring the fiberglass shell chair, a quote from Charles and a larger 670 Lounge Chair. $20-$30
