A modern baby's first Eames.

The last thing I bought for the baby’s nursery is also one of my favorite things in the room, the Eames “Hang-It-All.” Fourteen hooks with colorful wooden balls on the end of each one, it’s both very functional and great to look at. Even though Charles and Ray Eames are known primarily for their modern furniture designs, during their careers they designed quite a few things for children and families to explore and enjoy, from the Eames House of Cards to the movie Toccata for Toy Trains. The armshell rocking chair (now being reproduced in loving precision by Modernica) was even originally designed for a pregnant friend of Charles Eames.

Admittedly it’s a lot more than you would want to spend for a set of hooks, but it’s not just hooks, it’s Design.
