Lucia Eames, the only child of Charles Eames passed away on April 1, 2014 at the age of 83. Born in St. Louis to Charles and his first wife Catherine Woermann, Lucia was an accomplished artist and graphic designer, and mother of five children. After Ray's death in 1988, Lucia became the owner of the Eames Office and in 2004 she established the Eames Foundation, which oversees the Eames House in Pacific Palisades, California.
The Foundation website writes, "[Lucia] vividly remembered picnicking in the meadow before the house was even built and witnessing the pivotal decision to dramatically change the design to its current form. Lucia will be remembered for her gracious hospitality, elegance, commitment to her parents’ works as well as for the deep, personal beauty of her art."
