One of the first mid-century designs that I fell in love with was the fiberglass shell chair by Charles & Ray Eames. The original design dates back to 1950 and quickly became a staple in offices and schools across the country.

The following video clip from the Eames’ 1960 film, Kaleidoscope Jazz Chair, beautifully highlights the different profiles and rainbow of colors that were available. If you love the shell chair as I do, this video will make you swoon!

Happy Friday!!
