To celebrate the 100-year anniversary of the birth of Ray Eames, we’re offering a Select Edition of the Eames Wire Base Low Table for a limited time in colors Ray would have appreciated: cobalt blue, red-orange, and yellow-gold. A small, low table of elegant proportions, the classic design is endlessly adaptable — use it alone to support everything from plants to display pieces to laptops, stack a few bedside or next to a sofa as a side table, or group several together to form a coffee table or an even larger surface. Need some inspiration? Here’s a look at how homes and workspaces across the country incorporate the timeless and flexible Eames design.

The perfect perch for you cat? Explains Flickr user Vincent van der Heijden: “So I wanted a nice sidetable for my Sunday morning nespressos, but in the evenings it has a totally different purpose: it then acts as a daybed for my kitty. The LTR occasional kitty daybed….” (Photo: Vincent van der Heijden / Flickr)
