Memberships

The Eames House is a landmark of mid-20th century modern architecture. It was constructed in 1949 by husband-and-wife design pioneers Charles and Ray Eames, to serve as their home and studio.

Charles was once quoted as saying, “We don’t take our pleasures seriously enough.” Supporting the Foundation gives you an opportunity to take your pleasures seriously. Your contribution not only lets you visit and enjoy the Eames House, but it also helps maintain the Eames House for generations to come.

Through your generosity, Charles and Ray Eames’ approach to life and work will be extended, celebrated, and, in the best of all possible worlds, provide inspiration for others.

Gift Memberships

Gift an Eames fan with a Membership to the Foundation. Of course, Foundation Membership benefits apply only to the person(s) receiving the Gift Membership.

Members Appreciation Day

Every year, members are invited to join us for a Saturday afternoon for Members Appreciation Day. On this special day, members are invited to tour the ground floor of the Eames residence and Studio and to celebrate with experiences that illuminate the Eameses’ approach to life and work. The date for the next celebration will be moved to August 2022, our relaunch following Covid-19 disruptions, with the expectation of returning to a Saturday near June 20: Charles and Ray’s wedding anniversary.

Attendance is limited to the first 50 RSVPs. Therefore as space is limited, any new members in 2022 may not be able to attend in 2022, but will be invited to attend in 2023. Please email to confirm availability in advance of becoming a member. Click here to learn more about the day.

We thank you for your generosity and look forward to meeting you at Members Appreciation Day!
