Herman Miller Eames Elliptical Table
designed by Charles and Ray Eames


Eames Elliptical Table At A Glance:
Charles and Ray Eames considered many shapes for this large table introduced in 1951, but their final choice was elliptical. It reminds some of a surfboard, and its long shape fits perfectly in front of a wide couch. With its long, low profile, the Eames elliptical table provides a dramatic accent in any sitting area. It sets a striking stage for displaying mid-century kitsch, fresh flowers, magazines, or a special book in a living room, waiting room, reception area, or executive lounge. Finished in either black or white laminate, the table makes a strong and beautiful statement wherever it is. The wire-rod base design is a signature Eames look. Rods are zinc plated or powder-coated black or white to coordinate with the top you choose.

What's To Like:
The Elliptical Table's 89 inches of surface length provide an expansive arc that lets you spread out or display items - a lot or a few. The tabletop consists of a strong, seven-ply Baltic birch core sandwiched between high-pressure black or white laminate. The edge is beveled on an attractive 20-degree angle to give the top added emphasis.

What's Not To Like:
If you don't have a lot of lateral space in your sitting area, this table's too long. It works best as an anchor to help define space, and not so well when it's completely hemmed in.

The Bottom Line:
The Eames Elliptical Table is unique in the mid-century design catalogue, and makes a strong statement by its length alone, without going into fancy contortions to prove its attractiveness. At home in the modern living room, this coffee table is the perfect complement to most long sofas and spacious rooms.

DESIGNER

Charles and Ray EamesCharles and Ray Eames are perhaps the most celebrated designers of the 20th century. Married in 1941, the Eames duo are responsible for some of the most critically acclaimed furniture designs of the modern era. Amongst their most famous designs are the molded plywood chair, the aluminum chair group, and the Elliptical Coffee Table. Although they are most often remembered today for their furniture designs with partner Herman Miller, the Eameses engaged in artistic expression across a broad range of mediums- including architecture and filmmaking.

DESIGN STORY

In 1964, 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 makes it possible to produce tables in a wide range of sizes.

Like all fine works of art, Eames tables endure through the decades. Like all Herman Miller products, Eames tables purchased today have the strength and durability to provide reliable performance for decades to come.
