Delight is often found in the most surprising places. And in this one, we’ve found it on Flickr in a Group Pool called “Cats Love Eames!” — a cheerful collection of felines who’ve found refuge in a variety of classic, comfortable designs by Charles and Ray Eames. Check out a few that made us smile.
