The Eileen Gray Daybed, along with the Bibendum Chair, is directly attributed to the work Eileen Gray accomplished while commissioned by fashion designer Suzanne Talbot for her Parisian apartment in Rue de Lota. The Eileen Gray Daybed and her work with Talbot, also known as Madame Mathieu Levy, is considered the turning point for Eileen Gray in her formal and expressive language. This Eileen Gray Daybed, though the contemporary design is a re-edition, is another example of Gray's opulent take on the stark modernist aesthetic. Until her death, Eileen Gray was fairly unrecognized for most of her career, but is now regarded as one of the most influential 20th century designers and architects.
Eileen Gray will be remembered for her unique ability to design furniture using a wide variety of materials. Her use of wood, steel, glass, and lacquer to create geometrically abstract objects was magnificent. Though much of her ability was unnoticed during her lifetime, many of Eileen Gray's works are available as reproductions.
The impact of such designers as Le Corbusier, Jean Badovici, and Marcel Breuer on Eileen Gray's life can be seen through many of her designs that were installed at the E-1027 house in Roquebrune, near Monaco. Her famed Bibendum Chair and adjustable glass table were two of the furniture pieces that were designed specifically for this home.
