‘Take your pleasure seriously,” said Charles Eames. Choose work that fulfills you, and make room for people and pastimes that do the same. Charles, and his wife, Ray resolved to only take on projects that were of interest to them, and once committed to the project, give it their very best. Pleasure remained a priority all their lives, from the chairs they designed, to the picnics they prepared for gathering friends. To this trailblazing couple, seeking pleasure wasn’t a luxury, but a necessary pursuit, a process, and a way of being. Eames once said, “we worked very hard at that—enjoying ourselves. We didn’t let anything interfere with what we were doing—our hard work. That in itself was a great pleasure.”
