    The idea for this kind of thing comes from the film by Charles and Ray Eames "The Powers of 10" - they were famous designers from mid-century.

    They made films:

    And they designed a lot of really great furniture, houses, etc. Here is their iconic plywood chair:

    And you might have seen their famous lounge chair on "Frasier":

    The house on "The Incredibles" is basically filled with a lot of furniture that is "eames-ish"

    Ok, just call me Cliff Claven. Sorry for the random trivia.

About us
The PuritanBoard exists to promote robust discussion of theology in a Confessionally Reformed context. The modern trend of short statements of faith belies the many places where the Scriptures teach with great clarity. Though our respective Reformed confessions sometimes disagree, we believe that Churches have been given the gifts of teachers and elders to lead to the unity of the faith and the result of that unity is a Confessional Church confessing together: "This is what the Scriptures teach." The Confessions are secondary to the authority of Scripture itself but they arise out of Scripture as a standard exposition of the Word of God.
