The Eames

Chairs. They are top of mind for many brides and most choose the chivari or else go with their venue's house chair. I had assumed the chairs at our venue would be the standard wooden white chairs or else brown and I learned a couple weeks ago that they weren't. In fact, the church administrator said, "They aren't bridal" and recommended we order rentals. There's no way Guitar Fred would let me spend $600-1,000 on chairs alone. So I asked her what they were exactly and she said the wooden molded Eames chair. I envisioned the stackable chairs you had in elementary school. Ick. But Eames -- that's a fabulous designer that I admire. So guess what, they look awesome and they are truly original Eames and vintage (not new like the updated version in the photo below). I'm actually digging it.

Very cool...glad you like them. Chair rentals are ridiculously expensive! We went with the fruitwood chivari for 2 reasons: 1) Our venue has an exclusive party rental company you must use and they had a deal on the chivaris with them 2) our caterer included the chair rentals (chivari and white padded wooden chairs for the ceremony) in our catering package :)

I showed Tony your post, and he asked, "Can we get those?" So, Eames chairs for the win!
