Eileen Gray is considered one of the most underrated furniture designers of the 20th century. She did not receive worldwide recognition until later in her career. She eventually designed some very memorable furniture pieces. Eileen opened her gallery in 1922 and shortly thereafter began her career in furniture design. Her most expressive and memorable piece was the E-1027 glass and tubular steel table. This was a steel piece that could be adjusted to different heights with the table portion made out of glass.
