House of Cards

The Eames Office actually produced five different sets of the House of Cards: the small house of cards is the original, made in 1952. It actually had two decks, the Picture deck and the Pattern deck. The picture deck is manufactured today in conjunction with MOMA. I was lucky enough to have both decks as a child which are still in great shape today.
