Eames Office | Charles & Ray Eames

Today, the Eames Office (with a team that includes their grandchildren) works to preserve and extend founders Charles and Ray Eames’ work as well as to create new works. Starting in 1943, the office of Charles and Ray Eames was highly influential and contributed significantly to the development of both modern architecture and furniture, staffing notable designers under the philosophy of “learning by doing” when brainstorming on new ideas. More than producing furniture, the Eames Office worked and continues to work to create and showcase art, textiles, graphic design, multimedia and film, exhibitions, and toys.

Eames Coffee Table
Elevation drawing of the Eames Coffee Table (Rectangular) with a bottle and glass of wine for scale

The Eames Coffee Table is a low and functional mid-century table with a dowel-leg and wire base. Designed by Charles and Ray Eames in 1949 for use in their Case Study House No. 8, the Eames Coffee Table features many of the simple and playful details that the duo explored in similar furniture pieces. The tabletop and dowel legs are paired in finishes that range from walnut, to white ash and Carrara marble (with ebonized ash legs).

The Eames Coffee Table has a height of 15.25” (38.7 cm) and is produced as both a square table with a width of 30” (76.2 cm), and a rectangular table that is 30” x 45” (76.2 x 114.3 cm).

Eames Sofa Compact

The Eames Sofa Compact is inspired by a built-in sofa designed by Charles and Ray Eames in the 1940s. It provides ample seating for three people, making it a good choice in small or large spaces. Chrome steel legs add to the sofa’s modern lines and trim profile, while the plush foam cushions provide comfort. Slender and sleek in appearance, the Eames Sofa Compact was intended to be scaled down for rooms too small for a bulky, traditional sofa but without losing the comfort.

The Eames Sofa Compact has an overall height of 35” (89 cm), length of 72.5” (184 cm), and depth of 32.5” (83 cm). The seat height of the Eames Sofa Compact is set at 16” (41 cm).
