Design Charles & Ray Eames®, 1946
Molded plywood, laminate or veneer top
Made by Herman Miller®

The elegant simplicity of this coffee table by Charles and Ray Eames demonstrates the designers' focus on exploration and commitment to honest materials. Its legs, available in a range of finishes, find shape from the technique the duo invented to mold lightweight plywood veneer into gentle curves.

With a grand sense of adventure, Charles and Ray Eames turned their curiosity and boundless enthusiasm into creations that established them as a truly great husband-and-wife design team. Their unique synergy led to a whole new look in furniture. Lean and modern. Playful and functional. Sleek, sophisticated, and beautifully simple. That was and is the "Eames look."

The vision of Charles and Ray to continually explore, refine, and discover is reflected in a new rectangular shape for their well-known design. The Eames Rectangular Coffee Table is offered in veneer or laminate with a veneer edge, the rectangular top offers clean lines and a useful surface for any living, working, or lounging environment.

Eames

Husband and wife team Charles (1907-1978) and Ray (1912-1988) Eames played a major role in the world of modern architecture and furniture, as well as working in industrial and graphic design, fine art, and film. Charles completed two years of study at Washington University in St. Louis. With his design and life partner Ray, he designed prize-winning furniture that expanded upon the wood molding techniques of Alvar Aalto. Ray-Bernice Alexandra Kaiser Eames began as an abstract expressionist painter, having graduated from Bennett Women’s College in Millbrook, NY and later studying under Hans Hoffman while living in New York City. She co-founded the American Abstract Artists and has a painting in the Whitney museum’s permanent collection.
Herman Miller was a West Michigan businessman who helped his son-in-law, D.J. De Pree, buy the Michigan Star Furniture Company in 1923. De Pree had been working at the company, which opened in 1905, since he was hired in 1909 as a clerk. De Pree knew his father-in-law was a man of integrity, so he decided to rename the company after him. By the middle of the 20th century, the name Herman Miller had become synonymous with “modern” furniture. Working with legendary designers George Nelson and Charles and Ray Eames, the company produced pieces that would become classics of industrial design.
