The late textile designer, Alexander Girard (1907 – 1993), is best known for his collaboration with Ray and Charles Eames. You’ve most likely seen imitations of his work and not even realized it. This blurb from House Industries sums it up best: “Every design discipline resides at the crossroads of art, influence, relevance, inspiration and function. Though such intersections are rarely crossed without difficulty, Alexander Girard navigated these highways with an ease few could match.”

The collection of goods at House Industries is one of our favorites of all time. And, there is a new flock of items now available at Urban Outfitters. More images and info after the jump.
