The Elliptical Coffee Table ETRT (Charles & Ray, 1951): This low coffee table with its elegant elliptical shape ressembles a surfboard and was quickly given the nickname "surfboard table". With its double chromed base, the table formally references a theme repeatedly varied by the es, that of shaped steel rods welded together to make a fixed, static structure.
The mid-century designers considered many shapes for this large table introduced in 1951, but their final choice was elliptical. It reminds some of a surfboard, and its long shape fits perfectly in front of a wide couch. With its long, low profile, the elliptical table sits dramatically in front of a long sofa or in the middle of a chair grouping. It sets a striking stage for displaying mid-century fat lava vases, fresh flowers, magazines, or a special book in a living room, waiting room, reception area, or executive lounge.
Our impeccable reproduction is made from plywood and is finished with a black or white medium density fiberboard top with the chrome based steel rods.
