Crave Worthy: Eames Plywood Elephant

These limited-edition Eames plywood elephants ($1900) from Hive Modern are precious in every single definition of that word. Designed by Charles and Ray Eames in 1945, they're constructed from molded maple plywood. And if you have the cash for more than one of these pachyderms, beware: customers are limited to only purchasing two.

While this plywood elephant was designed as a toy for children, I can't imagine spending this much money on myself—let alone a kid. I remember how careless I was with my furniture and toys as a child. It was meant for jumping on and scrambling across, not for meditatively appreciating. Could you imagine spending this much money on something that was essentially child's play?
