In celebration of today's release of the Eames stamps issued by USPS, I thought I would post a few photos from the Eames Foundation annual member's appreciation day held this past weekend. We had a tasty lunch and tours of the home given by the Eames' family was a real treat. However, the highlight of the day was 'adults only' musical Eames chairs! Thirty plus people battled it out, but only one took home the grand prize: photograph #82 from the exhibit at the Eames office of 100 photos for Charle's 100th birthday.
