|charles and ray eames house of cards picture stylepark|
Found at 3am this morning! I have loved these cards ever since I first spied them in an interior photo years ago. Since then I've seen them pop up in various places and magazines, but never with a caption. Despite many attempts to google the cards I couldn't track them down...until this morning. Unable to sleep I was indulging in some online homelife reading and there they were, filed in a gallery on Charles and Ray Eames -how did I not know this until now! Anyway, thanks to my early morning start I am now an expert on the house of cards created in 1952. As it is their 60th anniversary I think I might just have to get myself a deck here.

|Influenced by print pattern and the everyday, Charles and Ray believed, "we have only to look at our immediate surroundings and the things we use and love for a deep and lasting appreciation of art in its truest form."|
