It’s not long ago that I told you about the stylish Black Collection launched by Vitra. A selection of design classics has been recently launched in all-black versions such as the famous Eames Occasional table – which eventually moved in with me over the Munich rooftops. It is small, it is versatile and it is beautiful – a design icon that will move with me wherever and whenever I decide to move.

For now it is my practical and stylish companion with maxium flexibility. I use it wherever I need it – currently it is next to my sofa in the living room holding the books I keep reading and referring to recently. Before that it was in my bedroom holding a few plants. Or it is in a corner with a ever changing lot of goodies on top of it – books, blankets, vases, planters and more. And that’s exactly what Charles & Ray Eames had in mind when they designed the Occasional Table LTR (low table rod base) back in 1950 – they created it as a small, variable side table used in their home standing alone or grouped together.

The new Occasional table from the Black Collection comes with an all-black table rod base and a black table top and fits easily into any kind of interior styling. Plus it is pretty compact and ideal to be placed under the Christmas tree. Don’t you agree?

    What a beautiful little table. I instantly fell in love. Looks pretty at your place and I think it would look great here, too.

    Das sieht wirklich aus, als sei es ein Snapshot aus dem Eameshaus! Die hatten ja auch Viel “Ethno”-Dekoration, du hast wirklich eine schöne Sammlung zuhause.

    Liebe Grüße, Jan

      Oh danke Dir Jan, das ist wirklich ein super Kompliment. Und ja, ich hab ja das Eames Buch, welches man auf dem Occasional Table sieht, und das Eames Haus war/ist wirklich ein Traum!!! Ein Benchmark sozusagen:-) Ist Dein blauer Occasional Table schon bestellt??

        Ja das hab ich auch, besser gesagt die Buchversion vor dem. Aber das große Eames Buch steht noch auf meiner Liste 😉
        Der Tisch ist bereits letzte Woche angekommen. Ich bin sehr zufrieden, auch mit der Farbauswahl 🙂

        Liebe Grüße!

    I love those tables to pieces, mine is a regular one and next to my bed. It holds my current reads, but mostly it’s used as a ladder for my elderly cat to climb into my bed. 🙂

      It has the perfect size for that purpose:-)
