The house is left as it was when Ray Eames died in 1988. (Charles died 10 years earlier to the day.) While you are not allowed inside the house or even to take pictures of inside the house, the sliding glass doors are open by the living room and kitchen, allowing the yellowing George Nelson lamp hanging from the 17-foot ceiling to sway gently in the Pacific breeze. The linoleum tiles put over the concrete floors a few years after the house was built are cracked. Books and other household items in the original kitchen remain frozen in time. The house is filled with–big surprise–various Eames chairs.
