‘Eames : the Architect and the Painter’ + Eames chair GIVEAWAY!

Tuesday 29th May 2012

WIN an authentic Eames Rocking Chair by Herman Miller from Living Edge – amazing!

Um yes.  I wonder if anyone will actually read this text given the image above really says enough to send any self respecting design lover into GIVEAWAY-INDUCED MADNESS! I’ll try my luck…

As you may or may not know, there is a seriously excellent film called Eames : the Architect and the Painter showing at ACMI in Melbourne throughout June (season runs June 1st – 17th 2012).  I was lucky enough to score tickets to the preview and it was SO so great.  Highly recommend!

The film covers the life and prolific creative output of Charles and Ray Eames – the American husband and wife team reknowned for their incredible contribution to modern design in 50’s, 60’s and beyond.  Of course every design afficionado can recognise an Eames chair when they see one, but these design icons have an inspiring story that really does transcend the timeless design pieces they’ve left behind.  Charles and Ray Eames were the ultimate creative collaborators, with a shared career that spanned furniture and textile design, architecture, interiors and exhibition design, fine art, photography and film making.   The film provides the most amazing insight into these two eccentric, visionary designers, who truly were in a league of their own.

Eames : the Architect and the Painter is presented in association with Living Edge, who as you guys probably know are the national stockist of authentic Eames furniture from Herman Miller – produced to original specifications under license.  That means the REAL DEAL people, none of this shonky replica nonsense.

To celebrate the Eames film screenings at ACMI, Living Edge are generously offering an authentic Eames Rocker from Herman Miller, as pictured above, for one lucky TDF reader!  Ahhh, AMAZING!  In addition, ACMI have kindly offered 3 x doublepasses to see the film!

1st prize – 1 authentic Eames by Herman Miller Rocking Chair in white (RRP $795.00), plus doublepass to Eames : the Architect and the Painter showing at ACMI June 1st – 17th 2012.

2 x runners up will each win a doublepass to Eames : the Architect and the Painter.

* UPDATE – WOW! Thank you everyone for your wonderful comments! Such an overwhelming response! The very (very!) lucky winner of the Eames Rocking Chair from Living Edge and a double pass to see Eames: the Architect and the Painter is Zozo (comment #619) – congratulations!! The 2 runners up were Bella (comment #1666) and Justin (comment #975), we hope you love the film as much as we did! Thank you again lovely readers and a big thank you to ACMI and Living Edge for this generous giveaway!

To be in the running, simply leave your comment on his post before 10.00pm Melbourne time today, Tuesday May 29th 2012.  This giveaway is open to Australian residents only.  Prize includes delivery to capital cities Australia wide (addresses outside of capital cities may attract an additional freight charge).  Winners will be drawn at random and notified by email tomorrow.

MASSIVE thanks to Living Edge and ACMI for this outstanding giveaway!

PS. If you’re in the market, design fans will be pleased to hear that Living Edge are offering 15% off the entire Herman Miller furniture range until the film season ends on June 17th – simply mention this promotion in any Living Edge store Australia-wide to receive this discount.  If you’ve had your eye on something… now might be the time to nab it!

  • Sheree 4 years ago

    Last night, as I was rocking my little terror into a succumbing slumber, and listening to the creaks beneath and behind me; I thought to myself “wouldn’t it be wonderful to have a chair that is comfortable, that doesn’t groan under the weight of me and my child, and looks absolutely fabulous?” I have been coveting the Eames rocker for some time now, and to wake to find that I might have a chance of obtaining one, fills me with incited hope!

  • Christina Derbyshire 4 years ago

    Please don’t pick me for either the chair or the movie screening. It depresses me greatly that I don’t have a skerrick of talent in the creation of beautiful things. But maybe I at least have the talent to recognise them…… Seriously folks, thanks for offering such a beautiful prize.

    We are about to embark on our first total house renovation project on the 10th of June, exciting times and I was looking forward to the shopping! My little bubba has bronchiolitis though, so we are having sleepovers at the royal childrens till he recovers. My short reno planning time frame is getting shorter. So I found your site and have done most of my planning and shopping online while I am here. So thanks so much, you have helped me more than you know! Design ideas and distraction- woo! The chair would be amazing for the babies room but tickets to the film would be a good thing to look forward to. Love this site!

    I can’t wait to see this film. The chair is beautiful too ;)

  • Alex 4 years ago

    The Eames were a real partnership – you can’t say Charles without saying Ray – and this comes out in their design. The rocker is a marriage of the industrial prefab shell with the Quaker minimalist practicality of the runners – elegant and domestic at the same time.

  • Mario 4 years ago

    The chair or the film would be lovely…

  • Melissa 4 years ago

    I know just where to put it! Please be me….

  • Ella 4 years ago

    I moved to Sydney a few years ago, and lament the lack of amazing ACMI-esq galleries and venues up here. I’ve booked my flights to come back down to Melbourne to see this (hopefully exquisite) film over the closing weekend. I’ve got a group of Eames-groupies to come along with me. I have adored Ray and Charles since my first year at Uni when I strolled into a history of architecture lecture and was exposed to the world of furniture design. I even attempted to made a balsa wood model of one. It wasn’t successful. I’d adore the chance to own a piece of historical beauty…

    I “Googled” images of the Eames rocking chair – you can see some great interiors in situ. It’s such a versatile, stylish but fun iconic piece and looks really cool in a kid’s room, stand alone or, with the current trend to throw over an animal fur. Very cool.

  • Ryan 4 years ago

    A M A Z I N G! My late grandfather had a chair similar to this [not sure if it was an original]. When he was alive [I would have been 12 when he passed] I would go to his house and marvel over it while rocking back and forth. I’ve been in love with Eames pieces ever since. Many years after his passing I asked my family what ever happened to the chair… but no one knew! It’s like it had disappeared. I was devastated! Now with a young family and a home of my own, I would have loved to have his chair in our house as a reminder of him. I have been tempted to get a fake, but felt it wouldn’t do justice… on the flip side, at this stage we can’t afford an original. Needless to say, it’d be surreal to have this chair in our house. Not just because it’s an incredibly designed piece, but because of the smile it would put on my face everyday… thinking back to those days as a small boy with my grandfather. Thanks for the opportunity Living Edge/Lucy :)

    Would LOVE LOVE LOVE an authentic Eames Rocker – would be a tough decision which daughter’s bedroom to put it in so I would probably have to keep it for myself…if I was that lucky of course. Just maybe I would share from time to time if the rocker and I could bare to be parted.

    Such a beautiful piece of design – the kind of object you keep for the rest of your life.
    Plus its a rocker. A ROCKER! Nothing says “stand back, I’m pure gangster” like a rocking chair. Cats hate them though. Their tales get stuck. But cats don’t know style. They’re not gangsters.
