Closer Looks: Eileen Gray Daybed Reproduction

Anyone who is a fan of Eileen Gray’s iconic furniture designs will notice at some point how few designs from her there are actually are.   This is sadly due to many of her original designs being destroyed during World War II.  Thank goodness several of her furniture designs were spared, and those are her famous designs that have gone on to achieve icon status in homes and offices around the world.

One of these iconic pieces spared from the destruction of World War II is the Eileen Gray Daybed.  Her original design was inspired by Polynesian dugout canoes and was created for Madam Talbot’s Parisian apartment in 1925.  Our Eileen Gray Daybed Reproduction is open from all sides for anyone who wishes to sit, which is exactly how Gray intended it to be when she designed it.  Our version is crafted with a polished stainless steel tubular frame and is available in a wide range of leather colors that make this the perfect piece in almost any setting.

If you would like to see this and all our reproductions in person, come visit us in our BellinghamChicago or Dallas Factory Showrooms!
