Design Charles & Ray Eames®, 1946 Molded plywood Made by Herman Miller®
With its thin, platter-like top and gently curved legs, the molded plywood coffee table speaks eloquently of the fertile early years of classic Eames design. Veneer selections range from the dramatic (white ash) to the demure (walnut).
Make Your Coffee Happy
What cup of coffee—or sandwich plate or cocktail glass—wouldn't look better sitting on this elegant Eames table?
Charles and Ray Eames applied the same breakthrough technology that resulted in their famous molded plywood chairs to create this simple, lightweight, imaginative table in the mid-1940s.
Lean, Simple Profile
The table's round, slightly indented top and gently curved legs are shaped by sandwiching thin wood veneers under heat and pressure. The curved legs are eight-ply molded plywood with natural face veneers. Available veneers are cherry, walnut, natural cherry, ash, and ebony-stained ash.
Light Weight, Nice Size
The production methods used to produce the table met one of the Eames criteria for this furniture: It had to be lightweight and easy to pick up and move around. It's also a nice size—34 inches in diameter, 15½ inches high.
