LIFE’s Images of a Newly-Constructed Eames House

In our continued celebration of the 70th-year anniversary of the Eames House’s construction, we are sharing images taken by Peter Stackpole for LIFE Magazine in 1950. These photographs, taken a few months after the construction’s completion, show the Eames House at its most bare state: with few objects inside and with a fresh layer of paint on the various industrial materials.
