    Designed by Charles and Ray Eames for Herman Miller®

    Often called "the surfboard table," this large, low table, stretches out dramatically in front of a long sofa or in the middle of a chair grouping. Its beveled edge brings out the grain of the laminate plywood top, synchronizing perfectly with its signature wire base to make a striking statement in both formal and casual environments.

    A Smooth Expanse
    The elliptical table's 89 inches of surface length provide an expansive arc that lets you spread out or display items--a lot or a few. The tabletop consists of a seven-ply Baltic birch core sandwiched between high-pressure black or white laminate. The edge is beveled on a 20-degree angle to give the top added emphasis.

    Signature Base
    The wire-rod base design is a signature Eames look. Rods are zinc plated or powder-coated black or white to coordinate with the top you choose.

    Design Story

    Design Story
    In 1951, having perfected a manufacturing technique for welding wire-rod bases, Charles and Ray Eames decided to bridge two bases with a dramatically shaped top large enough to hold a variety of items and fit comfortably with a long sofa or several chairs.

    They considered many shapes. In the end, did they take their inspiration from the surfboards they doubtless saw frequently, given the commanding view of the Pacific Ocean from their California home and studio? They never said, but people often refer to this piece as the "surfboard table." Whatever you call it, the elliptical table makes it clear that good design never goes out of style.
