Herman Miller ® Nelson End Table

The Nelson End Table (1954) reflects the clean lines and pleasing balance of style and function that characterize all of George Nelson's furniture creations. The round end table is a spot for flowers, a small lamp, a phone, an alarm clock, or a coffee mug. Coordinate with other furniture pieces, whether as an end table next to a sofa or chair (option one is perfect here), a small dining table (try option 2), or a coffee table (option 3). The Nelson End Tables also look great nesting with the Eames Elliptical Table, another Modern Classic from Herman Miller. The Design: Nelson once wrote that Herman Miller ''is not playing follow-the-leader.'' that's one reason why George Nelson & Associates worked with Herman Miller for over 25 years as they shepherded design into the modern era. George Nelson began his career as an architect, and designs like this end table showcase his affinity for clean lines and functional style.

About the Designer

George Nelson

George Nelson United States (1908 - 1986)

George Nelson began his design for what became the Swag Leg Group with the simple desire to create furniture with a sculptured leg. Beyond beauty, he sought practicality, insisting that the legs be made of metal, machine formed and pre-finished. The Nelson Swag Leg Group is a revival of an historic collection by George Nelson. Introduced in 1958, the group's evocative pieces have a look, scale, and function that are simply right for today. These classic, sculpted designs can be used individually or together in the home or office, from meeting spaces to offices and dining areas.

Design is an integral part of the business. The product must be honest. You decide what you will make. There is a market for good design. While fashion and style have their place, the main criterion for a Herman Miller ® product has remained constant: Does it truly solve a problem that people care about in a way that improves upon other solutions, or pioneers a new and better answer altogether? The answer is Yes.

“Hello, what is regular white compared to studio white?” asked by Timothy

"Hi Timothy, the studio white is more of a bright white, and the white has a little bit more of an off-white tone." Richard from Wayfair
