Nicknamed the “surfboard table”, this elongated Elliptical Table (1951) exemplifies the delightful playfulness that enlivened the work of Charles and Ray Eames. This table illustrates the whimsical playfulness that characterizes the work of this legendary American designer team. It also reveals the couple’s practical side – their desire to create furniture that would become a part of a life lived with minimalism and splendor. This 6’ foot table sets the stage for a bowl of fresh fruit, a special work of art or a big art book. Its light wire base and long lean silhouette look just as totally modern today as then.

Eames was born in 1907 in Saint Louis, Missouri. He briefly studied architecture at Washington University in St. Louis on an architectural scholarship. He proposed studying Frank Lloyd Wright to his professors, and when he would not cease his interest in modern architects, he was dismissed from the university. In the report describing why he was dismissed from the university, a professor wrote the comment, “His views were too modern.”

This iconic piece is constructed with a chrome steel frame, birch plywood surface with a melamine top in your choice of black or white colors. This is a perfect copy (and is not a Herman Miller release) of the same unit at a fraction of the price!

DIMENSIONS: W X 71″ X D 24″ X H 10″
