New Eames Rocking Chair

Dave and I gave this repro Eames rocker to each other as a birthday present to each other, we ordered it three months ago, and it’s finally arrived! Isn’t it beautiful?

It goes with our other chair, which was on the cover of Collect It magazine (top right):

Also a little announcement:

I am away AGAIN from today to London and Leicester, and the after that my parents are coming to visit us for ten days, so I won’t be around much online.

You shouldn’t really notice my absence too much, posts are scheduled for every day (go me!), but I won’t be commenting obviously. Though it’s not as if I’ve been commenting much anyway, with being in Luxembourg and then back at work for just 9 days, working long days trying to catch up with what was happening while I was away AND getting things ready for leaving again. I really hope that come September things will calm down so I can get back into posting as I go along (it is sooo weird to write a post that is three weeks into the future), and catching up on my reader daily!

But for now, have a good weekend! Mine will be very drunken!

    Great chair! I've never seen fabric upholstery on an Eames shell, but I love it!

    Oh my goodness, those chairs are divine! And the color, wow!

    That chair is just gorgeous (actually both are) — I'm a huge fan of Charles and Ray Eames.

    I love it! We just got a repro Eames rocker too, but I love your orange padding. Wish ours had that 😉

    Where did you order the rocking chair from? Where you able to pick out the colors?

    Thank you,
