The Textile House of Cards is a set of thirty-two interlocking building cards, in the likeness of the classic House of Cards set offered since the 1950s. While the original offered an assortment of photos featuring close ups of familiar items in the natural world, the textile sets show the multitude of patterns and color ways used in Eames Office fabrics. The textiles were produced by Maraham, the company manufactures textiles for architects and designers to this day. The six slots on each card enable the player to interlock the cards so as to build structures of myriad shapes and sizes.
The deck is available in three different cover options, though the assortment of cards inside is the same package to package.
Charles and Ray Eames lived in Southern California and their living room was featured in the LACMA exhibition California Design, 1960-1965: Living in an Modern Way. LACMA's permanent collections include over 60 objects designed by this husband and wife team.
