Guest Post: Home Office Essential – The Eames Office Chair

officeA home office isn’t an essential space for all homeowners but, for those who get to experience the privilege of working from home, it is nothing short of essential. It just isn’t possible to work effectively at home unless you have a space dedicated to it. Working from home is becoming increasingly prevalent in the 21st century as technology improves and makes it a much more streamlined process, so more and more of us are now dedicating space in our homes to a home office. When it comes to making the space successful and conducive to productivity, there are few items more pivotal than that of your choice of seating and, despite the modernity of most home offices today, it is an iconic piece of seating that is invariably first in people’s mind when it comes to their home office seating and it is that of eames1Charles Eames office chairs, such as the brilliant Eames EA119 office chair above. Eames, who was born in 1907 in St. Louis, is one of America’s most celebrated furniture designers and he was responsible for some of the 20th century’s most important pieces of design such as his inimitable DSW Chair and lounge chair and ottoman but he was also highly accomplished in the field of office chairs and he created some of the most striking, comfortable and functional pieces of office furniture of the last century. If you have a home office to do work in, it simply would not be complete without an Eames office chair behind the desk and you’ll know that you made the right decision the moment you settle in for your first day of work in your new home office environment. As you can see, it’s difficult to imagine a more impressive piece of seating for a home office than the incredibly stylish Eames office chair and if you’re planning to work from home more often in 2014, it’s definitely high time to get planning the space. As mentioned, the seating will form the cornerstone of your home office undertaking and you definitely won’t go too far wrong with any of Eames’ office offerings.

Doors in a mosaic

Doors in a mosaic Originally uploaded by rexandsharkey. These are some of the doors I’ve skulked around the neighborhood and taken photos of. I think all of them are cool. Part of this is for the Crestview door quest! But I also am always looking for cooler security doors. Our front door (which is on a fairly major street and right next to a bust stop) probably requires one, but I think ours lacks style.

War Seemed More Relaxed in the 1950s

In today’s society, the mere mention of a bomb on a social networking hub could have the police knocking on your door. The term “terrorist threat” is held by loose standards as children and young adults could face jail time for inappropriate comments made to friends in jest. Would this kind of behavior been worthy of so much attention in the 1950s? When you look back at Cold War memorabilia, it seemed more like the
