Abstract chess pieces. Small tables. Low seats. The beauty of the Eames Walnut Stools is that they are all of these, quite surprising when you consider that their original purpose was to adorn a specific lobby in a specific structure the 1960 Time-Life Building in New York City. Several pieces of solid walnut, turned to create interesting shapes, laminated and pinned together, give these stools a satisfying heft. The Design - Ray Eames drew on her training as a sculptor to design a new kind of occasional piece for the lobby of the Time-Life Building in New York City. Eames walnut stools became her favorite seats and were liberally scattered about the Charles and Ray Eames home in Pacific Palisades. -A museum curator once ordered two of these stools for his son and daughter. "Graduation gifts?" he was asked. "No," he said, "the kids are only five and three. But I want them to have the experience of growing up with something truly good that they can keep all their lives." . .
