Well, was just checking out one of my daily reads, Sheteriffic, and Allison R. has just posted an Ode to Eva Zeisel. I may be the only sadly uninformed person who was unfamiliar with her name, so thanks Allison for cluing me in to this amaaaazing 20th century designer – and at 100 she’s been there through it all!
First, Shelteriffic showed this unbelievably beautiful coffee table now available at DWR. They show it in a contemporary setting, but it would look just as perfect in a more traditional one as well… specifically my living room… 🙂 swoon… Oh, and by the way, she didn’t start designing furniture until she was in her 90’s. Now, there’s an inspiration!
Here are a few images from a nice NPR piece. In the piece, they discuss that in the era of straight lines and hard surfaces, Eva designed curves. She said “I design curves because I’m curvy – meaning I’m a little bit fat”. Could this woman be more fabulous!
