The Eileen Gray Table was designed for Eileen Gray’s famous E. 1027 house in Cap Martin, which highlights the rational designs for which Gray later gained notoriety. Originally the Eileen Gray Table was designed to enable one of Gray’s sisters to indulge in her love of eating in bed, the Eileen Gray design complements any space as a side/end table, bedside table or reception area table. This Eileen Gray Table is adjustable and finished in a brilliant triple chrome.Eileen Gray was fairly neglected for most of her career, but is now regarded as one of the most influential 20th century designers and architects. Famous for classics such as the Bibendum Chair, which typifies Gray’s opulent take on the stark modernist aesthetic, she now has earned the recognition she so deserved.Eileen Gray will be remembered for her unique ability to design furniture using a wide variety of materials. Her use of wood, steel glass and lacquer to create geometrically abstract objects was magnificent. Though much of her ability was unnoticed during her lifetime, many of Eileen Gray’s works are available as reproductions.

Scientific precision defines the Eileen Gray table, which brings modern design into focus with a confident flair. The circular, beveled glass tabletop is surrounded by sleek metal tubing, and mirrored by a horseshoe of the same material which keeps the table planted firmly on the ground.A rectangular tower supports the whole piece, rising above the tabletop to contribute a jaunty attitude. Perfect for a bright, modern home with a taste for high-class minimalism, this table keeps you ahead of the curve.
