So much fun doing the research for this painting.  When Dominic and I were in the
restoration business we restored several of Eames furniture pieces, especially
these well known Eames black molded plastic chairs. I always wondered what the big attraction
was until I sat in one and melted. They are so comfortable and were so far ahead of their time being Post war Modernism.

I felt the Mark Rothko paintings were a perfect match to use in a composition with Eames as they were from the same Era 1903 - the 70's and the two arts complimented each other so well. The table is also Eames and the Carpet was designed after Rothko.

Well, while I was at it, I dug into the past ( ok giving my age away here) to see what else I could come up with when I hit pay dirt with the Juke Box. I am sure may of you remember those. How fun! Add a couple of Ice Cream Sodas, a penny Bubble Gum Machine, a copy of Look and Bazaar Magazines, a big chrome lamp and couple pairs of those wild and crazy Saddle Shoes and and great Channel Handbag and there you have " A Blast From The Past" Enjoy
