Replica Eames LTR table is small and tough but rocks about quite a lot
Starting from the bottom, the wire base is stainless steel welded together. Table top is plywood with angled sides and matt black top finish, just like the genuine article. It is tiny a 33cm x 39cm and mere 27cm tall. Shame the bottom isn't level hence the table rocks about a fair bit. Given its small size and steel construction without rubber of any feet, there is no tolerance to any unevenness in the base. When it rocks, it is noisy on wooden floor in particular. Because of the really rigid construction, I couldn't bent the wires to level the...base and ended up adding some washers. Now the table is perfectly even and I added some rubber feet to keep it from scratching the wooden floor. Whilst the LTR side table complements well with the Eames lounge chair given the lounge chair is low, its look is yet to grow on me. Aesthetically, it is a bit of an acquired taste. Hey that’s just my personal opinion. You on the other hand might absolutely love the look, especially if you have the matching Eames desk and shelving units. Top surface finish is painted matt / low sheen black colour. I wonder how resilient it is to scratches and marks. The LTR name got me wondering about Eames product names. What is LTR?! Charles and Ray Eames were not the most creative people when it comes to naming their products. Names are mostly numbers or abbreviations based on function and materials, like D for dining and W for wood. Out of curiosity I built a list here: 670, 671 - Eames Lounge Chair, Ottoman respectively DAL - Dining Aluminium DAR - Dining Arm Rod DAW - Dining Arm Wood
