Made by Herman Miller

"The details are not details. They make the product. The connections. It will in the end be these details that give the product its life."
-Charles Eames

In 1958, the office of Charles and Ray Eames designed a table with a single segmented base, constructed of modular units, that could support tops of different lengths and widths. The strength and versatility of the lean and simple base design made it possible to produce tables in a wide range of sizes.

For over 40 years, the tables designed by Charles and Ray Eames have brought refinement to places where people get together. With their range of shapes, finishes, and sizes, Eames tables remain a popular choice for those who appreciate durability and performance, as well as simple beauty.

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."

Like all fine works of art, Eames tables have the strength and durability to provide reliable performance for decades to come. The rectangular table is offered with your choice of column and base finish. Laminate and veneer tops are 1 1/4" thick. Thin profile HPL tops are 1/2" thick. Glass tops are back-painted, with a satin etch finish to reduce the appearance of fingerprints. Tops up to 42"×78" are 1/2" thick; tops 42"×84" to 60"×120" are 3/8" thick with a Formcoat® substructure. Laminate tops have matching vinyl edge finish. Veneer tops have matching veneer edge. Thin profile HPL tops have black edge. Tables are offered with adjustable glides. Optional center cutout grommet & casters (wheels) are also available (please call to specify). Please note: larger sized tables may be in two pieces which will have a visible seam.

Charles and Ray 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
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.

Classic Eames table design with superb build quality
Anthony, more than a month ago.
This table designed over half a century ago is timeless in its looks and can be ordered in a variety of sizes, metal finishes, and table top veneers or laminates. I ordered the gorgeous veneer at no extra cost.

The table was delivered in two boxes; one for the table top and one for all the remaining metal parts and hardware. Two cast aluminum spiders support the table top. The two columns are thick wall steel tubing. The legs and spreader are cast aluminum. The legs, columns and spreader are bolted together with cast aluminum fittings and bolts.

Assembly is straightforward and took about an hour. Superb design and engineering, Made in the USA. Comes with the Herman Miller Certificate of Authenticity with date of manufacture and Serial Number.
