So, it’s probably no surprise to find out that Carter’s first activity table was lovingly made from Herman Miller parts and pieces. And we all wanted to touch it in hopes that Eames had touched that particular piece of furniture as well. We’re that dorky. We really are (ok, at least I am).
So, part of me wants to explain to him that he should wake up every morning and give the Herman Miller table a little kiss or wink – because furniture design is that important to mommy (and was that important in the design world - it influenced every part of design). But then the mommy (realistic) side of me wants him to know that we actually have no designy furniture because I know what a sippy cup (and beer) does to fabric … and I know what this mommy would do if a sippy cup touched a barcelona chair ... and it ain’t pretty.
