Questions about the article:

Question: What is the difference between each version of the Eileen Gray side table? Origin Version 1927 and New Version 2008?

Answer: The difference is due to the metal part to which the chain of the fixing pin is attached.

In the first design from 1927 - which is considered to be the original design - a metal plate with a hole was inserted to which the chain was hooked. This detail was changed only in 2008. A wider metal part (also called "bone") is used on which the chain is attached to an eyelet at the bottom. In offline stores this model is available as "original". Due to the subsequent change of the described detail, the table model in its original design is then no longer "original".

More about the designer
Eileen Gray, born on 09.08.1878 in Brwonswood (Ireland) was an extraordinary woman. In what was then known as the "Children's Kitchen Church" Law period, Gray moved and went into the professional world. Her autodidactic knowledge led her to success as an interior and furniture designer, without ever having completed a degree.

The beginning
Eileen Gray's father died in 1900. At that time she had already been learning the trade of a draughtswoman at the Slade School of Fine Arts in London for two years. In 1902 Gray moved to Paris where she continued to devote herself to the arts of drawing and oriental lacquerwork.

Further Information
In 1907 Gray rented a flat at 21 rue Bonaparte, which she kept until the end of her life. In Paris, Gray met the Japanese Sugawara, who introduced her to the art of East Asian lacquer. It was not until six years later that Gray dared to show her own work at an exhibition of interior designers. Gray's works aroused the interest of the couturier Jacques Doucet - an art connoisseur and collector at the time.

The first project
Doucet was refurnishing a house at the time. The style of the interior design was to move away from 18th century art towards modernism. Eileen Gray made two tables and a screen for the Doucet house. These works were dated and signed by Gray.

Return and creative break
At the outbreak of World War 1, Eileen Gray returned to London and took up work as an ambulance driver. After the end of the First World War, Gray returned to her old place of work, Paris, reopening her workshop. Her first major commission was to design a flat in Rue de Lota of Madame Lévy, known as Suzanne Talbot.

The breakthrough
In 1922 Gray opened the Galerie Jean Désert in the Rue du Faubourg St. Honoré. There she exhibited and sold her furniture, screens and lamps. With her "bedroom-boudoir for Monte Carlo", Gray caused controversial criticism in the Paris press in 1923. Among the followers of the "de Stijl" movement, however, it was highly acclaimed. Gray received encouragement from Gropius, Le Corbusier and Mallet-Stevens. Based on this, she ventured into architecture.

Gray's creativity
With the advice of the architectural theorist Jean Badovici and after several years of learning, Gray built a house for herself in Roquebrune. Well thought out including clever interior solutions and details. The other two projects Gray designed were also convincing in their ingenuity and practicality. Further designs, however, were not realised. Until her death in 1976, Gray worked on various newly conceived projects and was always experimenting with new materials. At the age of 80, Gray converted a barn near Saint Tropez into a summer house. Shortly before her death, Eileen Gray had an exhibition of her most important works at the Museé des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. On 28.11.1976, Gray's eyes closed forever.
