Living with Eames

Known for her roles in television and cinema, Liane Forestieri is a German actress who lives in Munich with her family. In this lively environment you can find some of Vitra's classics, such as the Lounge Chair or the Eames chairs, which adapt perfectly to this period building. "When we moved into this Art Nouveau house, we made a lot of changes, but we also kept many of the original elements. I focused on the interiors, something I particularly like. Whenever I'm in a hotel, I immediately start rearranging the furniture. I love fabrics, rugs , curtains and plants."

This actress' sensitivity is visible in every room of the house, marked by an eclectic selection of modern and vintage furniture, art, vegetation and lots of natural light. "Beautiful things calm me down. There are no rules, anything will do, as long as you like it!" In this five-story house, environments have been created for all family and individual activities, as Forestieri explains: "There are many places to find peace and quiet, which helps us get along. Of course, our children jump on the sofa, but There's no problem, we live in a house and not in a museum. We also really like to entertain, for us the focus is on people and not on objects."

Despite this, there are pieces that occupy a special place in the history of this family, especially the Lounge Chair. "We have two Lounge Chairs. My husband has a vintage version in his office in Berlin, which was a gift from his aunt. She knew he loved this model since childhood and one day she gave him this magnificent surprise. These are stories like This is what makes the furniture valuable to me, not its price. We also bought a Lounge Chair for this house, which was immediately adopted by my daughter. The Lounge Chair has a special elegance, a casual timelessness, it looks good in any environment. I hope that someday our children will keep some of our pieces and continue to sit in the chairs we sat in. It comforts me to think that these objects will be passed on to the next generation."
