Eames Rectangular Table by Herman Miller
designed by Charles and Ray Eames
At A Glance: The Eames Rectangular Table is part of the grand narrative of modern design. It's simple and straightforward, with no frills to the design. But even a simple rectangular table becomes something more under the creative hand of Charles and Ray Eames. The dual "legs" of the table with the tapering, polished aluminum feet are subtle and fine, and the name alone carries a lot of weight amongst those who are familiar with fine design.
What's To Like: This is a solid and dependable rectangular table. At 6' long it's well-sized for apartments or smaller homes, and good for restaurants and office break areas also. It's also the perfect size to serve as a work table by day and a dining table by night.
What's Not to Like: You can't fit a crowd around this table, so if you're looking to host the family for Thanksgiving, you might want to look elsewhere.
The Bottom Line: Solid and functional in any setting - except a setting for more than 6 people.
For 40 years, the tables designed by Charles and Ray Eames have brought refinement to places where people get together. Eames tables remain a popular choice for those who appreciate durability and performance, as well as simple beauty.
