The Eames Foundation is preparing a 250-year maintenance plan to preserve the legacy of the Eames House and are encouraging the public to take part by selling four limited edition prints. I had the pleasure of visiting the House last year so this campaign holds a special place in my heart.

Designers Charles and Ray Eames moved into their now-legendary California home, Case Study House #8, on Christmas Eve, 1949. More than sixty years later, the Eames family — caretakers of the home since Ray’s death in 1988 — is prepping to preserve the space as it existed when the couple lived and worked in it for the prolific last-half of their lives. The family’s goal? To raise $150,000 toward conserving the house and grounds for the next 250 years.

Each print is hand numbered and can be purchased for $75 each here.
