Herman Miller ® Eames ® Molded Plywood Coffee Table

The look, quality, and wood tone of this coffee table is great. My only complaint would be that the edge raises up slightly, so you can't place a platter on the edge and it is difficult for people to place a drink right on the edge. As long as you are OK with that, this is a great table that looks really sharp.

Herman Miller began in 1923 as a manufacturer of traditional residential furniture, became a leader in "modern" furniture in the 1930s and 1940s; developed lasting ties through the 1950s with legendary industrial designers who led the company in new directions; transformed the office furniture industry with the first panel system in the 1960s; invented and refined ergonomic work seating in the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s; reinvented the geometry of systems furniture in 2000, and is today the second largest office furniture company with customers and locations around the world. Their history of employee participation and ownership and technological innovation has long roots and continues to grow. They have always worked hard to be serious about both people and business. They look at their primary goal as creating great places to work.
