Side table with chrome plated tubular steel. Table top is tempered with glass and adjustable height. MADE IN ITALY.
Originally conceived for Eileen Gray’s home on the French Riviera, this chrome-plated tubular-steel table is a well-known classic. The side table E-1027 is probably the most famous of Eileen Gray’s designs, however she failed to receive any critical or commercial acclaim until after her death in 1976. First produced in 1926 for her sister who enjoyed eating and drinking in bed, the table eventually became part of the collection E-1027 for her cliff top house. The adjustable height and C shape of the coffee table allowed the base to slide underneath a bed. Uncomplicated and versatile in its design the table is equally at home being used as a side table, a coffee table or even as cocktail table. The simple but striking designer coffee table is now widely regarded as a classic piece of 20th century designer furniture and looks perfectly at home with an Eames Lounge Chair.
