Eames Demetrios, Director of the Eames Office and grandson of the legendary mid-century modern design duo Charles and Ray Eames, joined us as the festival’s keynote speaker. The theme for the night was Eames Design Thinking: 36 Years On. There was great food, wine, music and conversation; and, off course, an inspiring presentation from Eames. It was the perfect way to cap off the festival.

The Winnipeg store had received a complete reno just prior to the big event, giving guests a chance to check out the new design at the party…with drinks in hand! Thank you to everyone who took in the event and celebrated with us. It really was a memorable night.
For those of you who couldn’t join us, we have a full photo recap for you below. So pour yourself a glass wine and scroll on down. It’ll be as if you were right in the store there with us.
Emil, one of our guests, arrived with his vintage Eames shell chair in tow! But more on that later…
