4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By R. Roger Remington on November 21, 2011
Daniel Ostroff has been diligently researching and documenting, in great detail, the rich design contributions of Charles and Ray Eames.
His new book is an essential look at one specific family and the intimate effect of the Eames furniture on their living environment over many years. It is particularly valuable in that it gives the reader an idea of how the Eames' furniture was originally intended, not as products for the Modernist elite but as affordable, functional objects that contribute to a higher quality of life. A brief but most comprehensive and valuable read which adds greatly to the emerging and important Eames lore. We owe a debt of gratitude to Daniel Ostroff for this new contribution to the history of design in America.

It takes a producer-curator-historian hybrid to produce a design manifesto that reads like a radio play. I love this book, I recommend this book.

It is an amazing and unique book to add to my growing knowledge of the Eames and their life. Wish the pictures were in color, but such a little complaint.

What a sweet charming reading! I felt as I was sitting in the living room listening to this amiable conversation . At page 30 I was gently reminded of the importance of "aestethic" so i went and fixed that garage window after weeks of postponing it. You must have this gem on your coffetable.
