Designers: Charles and Ray Eames
The lightweight, 10-inch-high Eames wire-base table is a practical and versatile piece of furniture that works nicely anywhere you need a small surface that makes a big statement.
There's no end to the things you can do with this smart little table. 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. Serve hors d'oeuvres and drinks on them.
The table's compact size—13 ¼ inches deep, 15 ½ inches wide, 10 inches high—and light weight make it easy to move to wherever you need a small, attractive surface. You can even stack them out of the way when you're not using them.
Innovative design using wire rods.Charles and Ray Eames View Design Story
Any interior can be brightened up with a little Eames, and these small tables bear all the hallmarks of classic Eames design—the use of welded wire rods in the base, molded plywood in the surface, and a 20-degree beveled edge that reveals the essential material, the wood plies, beneath the surface.
The base—two U-shaped steel rods attached to the top, with cross members for added stability—is available in white, studio white, black, or trivalent chrome. The top is made of seven layers of Baltic birch plywood sandwiched between high-pressure laminate in white, black or studio white.
