Eames Side Tables

Charles & Ray Eames, 1968

For the Eames Side Tables, Charles and Ray Eames developed lower versions of the same base they had designed for the Contract Tables. Owing to their affinity with the Aluminium and Soft Pad Chairs, the Side Tables are perfectly suited for lounge and waiting areas equipped with these Vitra chairs, but also cut a fine figure alongside any armchair or sofa. The Eames Side Tables come with a round top in a choice of two sizes or as a square model. Both versions are available in two different heights.

These early designs, which already reflect the designer couple’s characteristic method of thinking in systems, were suited for a variety of chairs and tables.
