Christmas Magic at the Eames House

On Christmas Eve of 1949, Charles and Ray Eames stepped into their new Los Angeles residence – the iconic Eames House. The empty house of the steel-and-glass structure, which they designed themselves, was immediately adorned, creating a magical Christmas atmosphere.

They decorated the house with oriental paper ornaments, vibrant toys, and musical instruments. The Christmas tree was placed on a low table, giving the effect of a hanging decoration. The tree was surrounded by a carefully curated arrangement of candlesticks, toys, ornaments, and wrapped gifts, placed on Japanese mat. In short, the Eames house became a canvas for their creativity.

Charles and Ray Eames celebrated Christmas every year, eagerly anticipating the opportunity for experimenting and enriching the space with new unique ideas. Continuing the tradition of creative home decoration they began in 1949, each year they carefully selected and arranged intriguing decorations, artworks, candles, and wrapped gifts.

May their first Christmas in the Eames House inspire you to create a magical holiday atmosphere in your own home.

Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year,
