the eames film festival
You've bought the furniture...now see the movies! Design Within Reach is putting on an Eames Film Festival in their stores around the country. Brilliant marketing move; further associate the DWR brand with Eames, and drive a slew of design geeks into the stores. I'm sure the one in SF will be packed, especially since there will be a presentation from one of the grandchildren.
I've only seen Powers of Ten (and have watched The Simpsons homage probably two dozen times on YouTube with my daughter); would love to see the others. Turns out you can buy a box set of the Eames films for about $70. The experience of which would definitely be enhanced in the comfort of the lounge chair and ottoman set.
(NB -- All my favorite design-y type blogs have posted about this today; I wonder how many learned about it from DWR's nicely done (if just a bit too frequently delivered) email newsletter?)
