Eames® Coffee Table

eames® coffee table

Design Charles & Ray Eames®, 1949
Solid wood dowels, metal wire, veneer top
Made by Herman Miller®

A reintroduction of the coffee table Charles and Ray Eames designed in 1949 for their Pacific Palisades home, the Eames Coffee Table features a base reminiscent of the wood dowel option on Eames Shell Chairs. Working closely with the Eames Office, keepers of the Eames design legacy, Herman Miller replaced the original rectangular top, which was covered in gold leaf, with a choice of square or rectangular tops available in a variety of more practical materials.

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 bases are offered in natural maple, white ash, ebony and walnut dowels with a white, black or trivalent chrome wire. The top features either a white ash, ebony, walnut or santos palisander veneers or carrara marble top. Veneer top tables are shipped assembled. Tables with stone tops ship ready to assemble.

30" w | 45" L | 15.25" h | 50lbs.

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.
