Living with the Eames Legacy Posted August 21, 2013 by Daniel Ostroff

When we sat down with sculptor Llisa Demetrios that morning at her home and studio in Sonoma County for an interview about her grandparents, iconic husband-and-wife designers Charles and Ray Eames, we learned it was so much more.

To Bill and me, it was just the third Wednesday of the month. When we sat down with sculptor Llisa Demetrios that morning at her home and studio in Sonoma County for an interview about her grandparents, iconic husband-and-wife designers Charles and Ray Eames, we learned it was so much more.

Llisa started off by saying, “Today’s a bittersweet day for our family. Charles died on August 21, 1978. Ray died 10 years later to the day in 1988.”

Oh. My. Gosh. With that unexpected, almost mystical overlay to our meeting, Bill and I began what would become two of the most amazing hours we’ve ever spent.
