One day I plan to outfit our dining room with Eames chairs.

You know, those iconic plastic chairs with the "Eiffel" base. Can you believe they're the same design today since the 1948 originals? Amazing!

Vote now for which color you think we should pick:

Blue



Yellow



White



Wire



(For the next few, you'll have to imagine them around a dining room table.)

Black



Orange/Red



Lime Green

I'm so sorry that this post seems like a commercial-- I just have Eames chairs on the brain.

I vote for yellow or green. I love all the pictures of beautiful living spaces you found with the Eames chairs. Makes me feel very inspired for apartment decorating!

Thanks, Kathryn! You know when I told Nathan that I was dreaming about Eames chairs, he thought I meant these tulip chairs: http://moourl.com/on3ev
They retail for about $1300. a piece!!! Cute. But, uh, no.

They might have some tulip chairs at UT surplus. I hear they're having an auction soon! :)

The orange ones look like something you might find yourself sitting on in an airport that was built circa 1963.

I vote for green - but I love anything green. Except for vegetables. :)

I'm a little late in the vote, but I say white. I love white! So nice & clean...
