Eileen Gray (1878-1976) was an Irish interior designer and furniture designer. She is considered one of the most important designers of the early 20th Century.
Among her most popular designs is the "E 1027", a side table which in 1987 was included in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art.
Gray's work is comparable to other modern designers like Le Corbusier and Mies van der Rohe and her designs are highly coveted by collectors and furniture enthusiasts all over the world.
As the youngest child of the wealthy family of Eileen Gray studied painting at the prestigious Slade School of Fine Arts of University College London in Bloomsbury. But when her father died in 1900, Gray transferred to the Ecole Colarossi and the Academie Julian in Paris. Gray returned to London in 1905 where she learned the art of painting from the Japanese artist Seizo Sugawara.
