Eileen Gray at Centre Pompidou 2013

On my way back from the furniture fair in Milan, I took the overnight train to Paris (less romantic than it sounds) so I could see the Eileen Gray show at Centre Pompidou.  In true nerd-form, I spent hours poring over the items on display. It was a Monday morning at the museum and not very crowded. I took photos of everything I was allowed to photograph. Below are some highlights.

They were showing many of her collages that were studies for rug designs.
