May marks the start of peak-wedding season. Love is in the air and unions are popping up as quickly as a weeds in the summertime. Here at SmartFurniture, we have been witness to quite the longstanding coupling ... a marriage of mid-century one could say. In high-school, they would have been the power-couple. Of course, we are talking about Eames & Nelson. The two last names that represent the design world. Alone, Eames designs epitomize an entire movement in design and furnishings but with Nelson - their combination is almost supernatural. Both design teams valued functionality and solution-based design mentality that spearheaded an entire movement. So let's take a look at our favorite Eames + Nelson marriages ...

The Nelson Swag Leg Desk + Eames Bikini Wire Chair: A cooky combo. These two playful pieces make a fiesty pairing - the desk has a cheerful air to it while the chair seems to have a frisky personality. Work is sure to be anything but boring with these two.
The Nelson Platform Bench + Eames Molded Plastic Armchair: Opposites attract. These two certainly have differing materials and aesthetics - nevertheless they compliment each other perfectly.
The Nelson Swag Leg Dining Table + Eames Molded Plastic Armchair: Last but not least, the Made-For-Each-Other Couple. These two compliment each other at every turn.
