Herman Miller Eames® Coffee Table
Designed by Charles and Ray Eames, 1949
A reintroduction of the coffee table Charles and Ray Eames designed in 1949 for their Pacific Palisades home, the Eames Coffee Table features a wooden base with metal cross-struts reminiscent of the wood dowel option on Eames Shell Chairs. Working closely with the Eames Office, keepers of the Eames design legacy, Herman Miller replaced the original rectangular top, which was covered in gold leaf, with more practical options. The Eames Coffee Table is now offered in a choice of square or rectangular tops, both of which are available in a selection of natural materials—veneer, marble, or solid wood—that add to its elegant charm.
