Eileen Gray

Rachel Olwill, Transition year,

Object No. 94 Eileen Gray chair, 1926
National Museum of Ireland - Decorative Arts and History

As a child I loved the fresh Wexford air, the long walks and the quiet roads                                                                           As I grew so did my love for travel, 

I found myself wanting to move to France so finally I did France turned into my new home but I knew in my heart that I missed the fresh Wexford air the long walks and the quiet roads   

I know I miss many things from Wexford but I also know my life would have been wasted if I had stayed in Wexford. 

My thoughts can be free now I have moved, more design idea I can think of                                                                               

To this day I am happy I can openly speak my mind and maybe if I go back to Wexford they might broaden their minds to some of my ideas.       

As I think back of one of my fondest memories, the day I designed the chair I designed the chair in hope of changing the ways in which people think 

My chair has one armrest to leave the body more freedom in movement and hopefully allows this freedom to extend to ideas and thoughts I lived a long life but I hope my years will change the minds of many
