    You Know You're in an Architect's House When...

    By bryan boyer

    A drafting brush shows up in your kitchen*...

    ...Or you find a tape measure in your medicine cabinet...

    ...Or empty bottles of whiskey appear underneath your Eames chair in the wake of a party.

    *not my kitchen!

      That would be much more hardcore, but those are Kiehl's sample packets.

      I'm curious to whose house this is. By measure of the Eames chair its not the "run-of-the-mill" architect. Makers Mark - kentucky whiskey, you think it was bought because of taste of the delicacy of the bottle?

      jam- the chair has been 'liberated' from a 60s era library at a university which will remain unnamed. The stacks were littered with these chairs and saarinen tables being under-appreciated.

      As for the whiskey... we all have our vices. Also, please note the large glass bottle in the second picture, which the discerning may recognize as a miller high life 40oz.

      Hey...I know that chair! I should have warned you about its scotch habit. I think last time it went out for a night on the town it ended up in a compromising position with a Corb chaise longue. Nice to know you've been treating each other well.
