Six versions of this Eileen Gray End Table are known. In all probability, more were made. Some were lacquered while others were done in unpainted plywood. One was veneered. This model was obviously a favorite of Eileen Gray since she placed the end table in practically every house associated with her name. The Eileen Gray End Table appears very conspicuously in the photographs of the main room of E-1027, the villa which she and Jean Badovici designed at Roquebrune in 1927.
Badovici, a Romanian intellectual, was a friend of and apparently the person most responsible for convincing Eileen Gray to turn to architecture. He was editor of l'Architecture Vivante which published a special number on the house at Roquebrune entitled "E-1027 Maison en Bord de Mer". The name E-1027 was a cryptogram containing the initials of the two designers. The E was for Eileen. The number 10, 2 and 7 stood for the letters of the alphabet, J, B and G.
