Eileen Gray E1027 Side Table

Plenty of side tables have this minimalist combination of chrome and glass, but this is the original Eileen Gray E1027 Side Table, a true design classic.

It shares its name with the summer house Eileen Gray built for herself and her collaborator, Jean Badovici. The name is a code for their relationship; E for Eileen, 10 for Jean (J being the 10th letter of the alphabet), 2 for Badovici and 7 for Gray. The table is adjustable so it can be moved into various positions and uses. The frame is always made from chromium-plated steel, but the table tops are available in crystal clear glass, smoked glass or black lacquered metal.

Prices range from £575 to £685 from Aram.
