Herman Miller Eames Wire Base Table
designed by Charles and Ray Eames
At A Glance:
Any interior can be brightened up with a little Eames, and the small Eames Wire Base Table bears all the hallmarks of classic Eames design - the use of welded wire rods in the base, molded plywood in the surface, and beveled edge that reveals the essential material (the wood plies) beneath the surface. Line a few of them up to work like a coffee table. Use them as bedside tables. Stack one on top of another to serve as an end table next to a sofa. Scatter them around a room. Use them to serve hors d'oeuvres and drinks.
What's To Like:
The table's compact size and light weight make it easy to move to wherever you need a small, attractive surface. You can even stack a few of them out of the way when you're not using them. Sometimes it's the small things that make the biggest statements - and this attractive, balanced table is no exception.
What's Not to Like:
If you need an end table, or a larger surface, this small table won't be big enough for you. If you're looking for an accent table, then this is a table that even Goldilocks would love.
The Bottom Line:
A prime example of the Eameses use of wire rods, the Wire Base Table is small, light, and a sturdy base for whatever it is that you'd like to display. Utilize a few of them for maximum effect!
