Charles E. ETR Elliptical Table

The iconic ETR Elliptical Table by Charles and Ray E. is comprised of simple, yet effective geometrical forms. Designed in 1951, this classic is also referred to as the “Surfboard” due to its shape and is an artistic alternative to a standard coffee table. The low-set, mid-century design can be combined perfectly with contemporary furniture or older pieces. It is ideally placed in front of a long sofa or group of chairs, or can function as a striking standalone piece. The elegant elliptical top of the table is supported by shaped steel rods welded together – a recognisable feature of E.’s work.

ItaliaDesigns produces the tabletop of the ETR in black or white plywood. The fixed structure of the welded rods is from quality steel, double mounted for extra support.

About the Designer

Charles E.

Charles E.

Considered as one of the most influential designers of the 20th century, Charles E. was born in St Louis, Missouri. Perhaps decorated as the finest American designer of his generation, Charles E. was heavily influenced by his uncle’s workings, the great architect William S. Eames.

Despite a healthy education studying architecture at Washington University in St. Louis, Eames best began to put his ideas into motion whilst working as a labourer at the Laclede Steel Company in the town of his birth. Here, he received first-hand knowledge and experience in engineering, drawing and architecture, learning the moulding and treatment techniques he would later become famous for.

Both Charles E. and his wife Ray are still heavily celebrated on an international scale, especially for their work in the field of modern furniture. Both collaborated on numerous projects, earning them the AIA Twenty-five Year Award in 1977 and the prestigious Royal Gold Medal Award in 1979, a year after Charles passed away. Their work is still showcased at MoMA in New York, whilst in 1985 IDSA accredited Eames as "The Most Influential Designer of the 20th Century".
