The Eames Storage Unit is an incredible piece of design. This kind of synergy is typical of the work of Charles and Ray Eames. Both of these units are gorgeous, and both of them can stand completely alone and work on the floor of your office or the floor of the museum. But when you put them together they form a cohesive and compelling (not to mention highly functional and efficient) whole. They're a good marriage, in other words. They share the same color schemes, the same sense of vibrancy and fun. They happen also to share a commitment to making your life at work easier, more beautiful, and more productive.
Charles and Ray Eames always had their eye on ways to build systems that could be afforably mass produced, and this office set is a perfect example. The main difference between the two is that the Storage Unit (which has more area to "dress up," adds a few panels of textured wood to complement the colored panels. Overall the look is complementary to the desk, but a bit grander - more like a sculpture, in a way, than the desk is.
The Storage Unit comes in several different sizes and all of them have their particular charms and particular uses. Within the unit there are lots of different ways to organize, display, and and store your things. It's a mix of cabinets, sliding doors, and open areas, all of which exist in great harmony with the color and wood texture "design plates" that make the unit what it is. There are a dozen ways to make great use of this set, which is of course part of its timeless appeal. It's a bookshelf, a display space, a storage system or an entertainment center - it's what you need it to be in your particular home or office.
Of course, a great office chair is also necessary when you're buying a great desk. Charles and Ray Eames created dozens of those as well. Check out one of the many chairs in the Eames Aluminum Group, all meant for office use as well as general use. These attractive and simple chairs are lovely, uncomplicated, and comfortable. You could also really make a statement with an Eames Lounge Chair (for introspection or visitors there's no better chair in which to lay back and relax). Even the famed LCW, the Plywood Lounge Chair, wouldn't be too out of place behind the Eames Desk.
