Design by Charles & Ray Eames, 1951.
By Herman Miller.
Long and low, the Eames elliptical table sits comfortably in front of a long sofa or several chairs. It's a large, dramatic stage for fine art, fresh flowers, magazines or special books on display in a living room, waiting room, or executive lounge. Charles and Ray Eames spent many years experimenting with wire rods, work that yielded a number of breakthrough products in the 1950s — including the wire-rod base for this table as well as many other products.
The Eameses considered many shapes for this large table but their final choice was elliptical. It reminds some of a surfboard. That's fitting, given that the Eameses enjoyed commanding views of the Pacific Ocean from their California home and studio.The 89" long table provides lots of room to spread out or display a variety of items. The tabletop is made from seven layers of Baltic birch plywood sandwiched between Black or White high-pressure laminate with a beveled edge on a 20° angle to reveal the plies. The wire rod base is chrome plated.

Designer: Charles + Ray Eames
A chair that looked like a potato chip. Another that resembled a "well-used first baseman's mitt." A folding screen that rippled...
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."
That look and their relationship with Herman Miller started with molded plywood chairs in the late 1940s and includes the world-renowned Eames lounge chair, now in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.View other products by Charles + Ray Eames
