Eames Round Table by Herman Miller
designed by Charles and Ray Eames
At A Glance: The Eames Round Table is a staple of modern design. It's simple and elegant, with no frills to the design. But even a simple round table is made more interesting when Charles and Ray Eames get involved. The pedestal "leg" of the table and the tapering fingers of the metal base are subtle and fine, and the name alone is worth a lot of cachet.
What's To Like: This is a solid and dependable round table. Good for apartments or smaller homes, and good for restaurants and office break areas.
What's Not to Like: You can't fit too many people around this table, so if you're looking to serve 10, you might want to look elsewhere.
The Bottom Line: Pretty 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.
