Modern Classics: Eileen Gray Side Table

Also known as the E-1027 Table, this circular glass table was designed with Eileen Grays E-1027 House (in southern France, near Monaco)  Now, if youre curious what those numbers mean, its a code for the people who collaborated on the design of the house and who also just happened to be lovers:  Eileen Gray + Jean Badovici.  Read more about that here.

Gray, like many successful designers, was inspired by the world around here, and designed this table with both her sisters habit of eating breakfast in bead (crumbs are soooo inconvenient) and Marcel Breuers tubular steel experiments at the Bauhaus.  I think you can also see Le Corbusiers influence on this table and other pieces

The result was this gorgeous table with a chrome-plated steel frame/base, glass top and adjustable side.  Supreme in its function and simplicity, its a gorgeous piece that looks beautiful in any space.
