Overview

Eames Molded Plywood Coffee Table
by 
Herman Miller 

designed by Charles and Ray Eames


At A Glance:
Eames Elliptical Table Charles and Ray Eames designed the molded plywood coffee table in 1946 to complement their famous molded plywood chairs. Lightweight and movable, this imaginative table is unmistakably Eames with its thin, slightly indented top and gently curved legs. This coffee table first came to Herman Miller's attention when their design director George Nelson saw it and other Eames molded plywood products at a showing in the Barclay Hotel in New York City in the mid-1940s. Nelson contacted the Eameses, and soon afterward they were designing for Herman Miller.

What's To Like:
"Strength" isn't the first thing that comes to most peoples' minds when it comes to plywood furniture. But this coffee table is chock full of strong-itude. Three high quality, lightweight hardwood inner plies are sandwiched between natural wood face veneers. The 5-ply table top and 8-ply 4-leg base combine for exceptional durability and balance (you know what they say about "a cord of three strands" not being quickly broken).

What's Not To Like:
If you have neutral decor in general, or already have other woods in your home, the Molded Plywood table may not have the "pop" you're looking for. But then again, you can add the "pop" rather easily with tabletop decoration. So this isn't a "dislike" as much as a "take note of."

The Bottom Line:
The Eames Molded Plywood Coffee Table is the granddaddy of them all when it comes to mid-century modern plywood tables, and is right at home in the modern living room. This coffee table is the perfect complement to most seating areas and provides a cozy feel.

Details:

  • Overall: 15.5" h x 34" diameter
  • Eight-ply molded plywood base with natural face veneers
  • 5-ply top, with three strong, lightweight hardwood inner plies sandwiched between natural face veneers
  • Cherry, walnut, natural cherry, ash, or ebony-stained ash veneers
  • Curved legs
  • This classic table's top and legs are shaped by molding thin wood veneers under heat and pressure - the same breakthrough process Charles and Ray Eames used to create their molded plywood chairs
