Vitra Eames Elephant

Posted on Feb 27, 2015 by Bertie's Blankets


I'm rather fond of this elephant stool. A statement piece with a designer price but surely something to cherish and pass down the generations. Available to buy from John Lewis. As stated on their site: "Renowned designers Charles and Ray Eames originally penned this playful design in 1945, having been charmed by the majestic elephant's role in children's stories and mythology. This original design was first created in plywood, but never made it into mass production. Decades later, the Eames elephant is now available for the first time in a plastic version for those it was originally intended for: children. Whether used as a toy outdoors and in, or simply a decorative piece in your child's room, this cuddly companion is sure to provide inspiration and delight."
