Dining table for Potato Chip Chairs?

Postby bitzala » Fri Nov 11, 2005 8:42 am

Hello--

Anyone know of a great dining table that goes well with Eames DCW chairs? We're looking for a simple table that can extend, but haven't seen anything yet that really yells out to us.

Here's a link to the chairs: http://www.pricegrabber.com/search_getp ... hair/skd=1

thanks,

Great chairs. How about something eliptical? Or rectangular, but with legs that taper like the DCW legs taper?

There's a table called "dining table wood" or DTW. I assume they're meant to go with DCW.

Here are more Eames Tables.

And, in my opinion, a cyclone table would look cool with these chairs as well.

Hello, Jason-- thanks for the great ideas. The DTW is intriguing! I've not seen this one before. I like the Eames tables a lot-- only wish their legs were wooden.

SIB, thanks for your input. I like elliptical too, like the Eames table that Jason linked. I'm talking to a furniture maker on Beverly to see if he knows of anyone that can make a table with molded plywood legs to match the legs of the DCW. Kind of like the coffee table Eames made.

Morbank-- oops. Just caught that you prefer tables without glass.

Although we'll end up going with the Eames version of the DCW chair (because it's available now and more predictable in terms of color), I did find an interesting knock off that looks reallly good (an exact replica of the original, I'm told) and it's only $150! (The web site says it's more, but the owner said he's lowered the price.) http://www.americanmodernfurniture.com/ ... chair.html

It won't be available for a few months and the walnut does vary in color. I recognize that this is a controversial topic amongst the purists, but it's still a nice option for people who love the design and don't want to spend the money.
