Here's to you Mr. and Mrs. Eames...

Another busy week is approaching and tonight was the perfect way to wind down. Collin, my husband, served me grilled steak and asparagus alongside boiled potatoes and bread with oil and balsamic vinegar (a favorite of ours since honeymooning in Italy)...yum! For dessert, I made Roasted Banana Cinnamon Rolls - a recipe from one of my favorite food sites - Picky Palate. I'd been dying to try these, and they were delicious! You can find the recipe here.

Moving on...

I want to pay tribute to a long time classic in the furniture world - the Herman Miller Eames Molded Plastic Side Chair. I absolute love this piece! It is so versatile and can pair with traditional and contemporary schemes. The chair was designed in the 1940's by Charles and Ray Eames, husband and wife, and was the first industrially manufactured plastic chair. Today, it is a long-standing statement in design and you can choose from several colors, base options and chair styles - from armless to my personal favorite, the rocker. It gets even better - it's eco-friendly too. Ahhh...good work Charles and Ray!
