Herman Miller ® Eames ® Elliptical Table

Long and low, the Eames elliptical table sits comfortably in front of a long sofa or several chairs. It's a large, dramatic stage for fine art, fresh flowers, magazines, or special books on display in a living room, waiting room, or executive lounge. Finished in either black or white laminate, this table is a striking addition to waiting rooms, reception areas, executive lounges, and homes from landlocked to beachfront. The Design: Charles and Ray Eames considered many shapes for this large table introduced in 1951, but their final choice was elliptical. It reminds some of a surfboard. that's fitting, given that the Eameses enjoyed commanding views of the Pacific Ocean from their California home and studio. Charles and Ray Eames spent many years experimenting with wire rods, work that yielded a number of breakthrough products in the 1950s - including the wire-rod base for this table, the Eames Wire-Base Table, the Eames Wire Chair, and other products.
