I'm trying my hand at making a mini Eames styled shelving unit. Here's what I came up with.
I made the unit out of brass angles, brass tubing, laminate samples and bass wood. The drawers aren't quite even, but I'm working on getting better at that. This one won't be for sale because there is glue that I couldn't remove on the laminate panels...besides that I really like it!
The sofa is Kaleidoscope house, the lounge chair and ottoman are Reac, the plant in the corner is from my swap with Mandy at Mini Modern Mind. The rug is an Eames dot pattern fabric sample from The Shade Store (free!), the art is a Matisse post card, the coffee table, lamp, drift wood sculpture and shelving unit are by me.
This is a picture of the real Eames shelving units. You can get them in many different configurations and color combinations. The metal in the real thing is steel, but I could't find any small scale angled pieces in a silver color. I made another one in a black, white grey color way. I will probably make more, but it won't be for awhile because the angles are difficult to procure since the company doesn't make them any more and the fact that it was a real pain in the butt to make!
