Charles Eames Plywood Coffee Table

Modern Furniture Design Profile

Plywood Table by Charles and Ray Eames 1946

The plywood coffee table is simple in design and big on function. It is strong yet light weight.

Charles and Ray Eames have used the same concept and use of technology to design the form of the coffee table as they used with the LCW, Lounge Chair Wooden.

It is made of molded 8 ply plywood for the legs or base and has a 5 ply plywood saucer like top.

It is a small and versatile coffee table that can slip into most interior schemes, be they traditional or contemporary, residential or commercial.

It is so popular and multifunctional that Herman Miller have been manufacturing it for over fifty years. It is still available to enhance your home’s design.

It just goes to show that great design – like most of the Eames’s work is timeless.
