Noguchi® Coffee Table from Herman Miller

Modern, wood and glass coffee table.
Noguchi Coffee Table from Herman Miller

Design by Isamu Noguchi, 1948. By Herman Miller. Sculptor Isamu Noguchi took wood and glass and blended them together to make this graceful, abstract coffee table. The Noguchi Table’s balance of sculptural form and durable function has made it an understated and beautiful element in homes and offices since its introduction in 1948. The table is constructed of three pieces: a freeform, ¾” plate-glass top resting on two curved, solid wood legs that interlock to form a tripod for self-stabilizing support. This perfectly poised structure features a delicate appearance that is defied by its balanced, durable and extremely sturdy design. To assure authenticity, the signature of Isamu Noguchi appears on the edge of the top and on a medallion on the underside of the base. Backed by Herman Miller’s 5 Year Warranty.

Eames® Elliptical Table from Herman Miller

Eames modern elliptical coffee table.
Eames Elliptical Table from Herman Miller

Design by Charles & Ray Eames, 1951. Long and low, perfect for nesting coffee tables, the Eames Elliptical Table sits comfortably in front of a long sofa or several chairs. It’s a large, dramatic stage for fine art, fresh flowers, magazines or special books on display in a living room, waiting room, or executive lounge. Charles and Ray Eames spent many years experimenting with wire rods, work that yielded a number of breakthrough products in the 1950s — including the wire-rod base for this table as well as many other products.

The Eameses considered many shapes for this large table but their final choice was elliptical. It reminds some of a surfboard. That’s fitting, given that the Eameses enjoyed commanding views of the Pacific Ocean from their California home and studio. The 89″ long table provides lots of room to spread out or display a variety of items. The tabletop is made from seven layers of Baltic birch plywood sandwiched between Black, Studio White or White high-pressure laminate with a beveled edge on a 20° angle to reveal the plies. The wire rod base is chrome plated or powder coated Black, Studio White or White.
