"The simple joy of taking an idea into one's own hands and giving it proper form, that's exciting."
-George Nelson

The George Nelson tables reflect the clean lines and pleasing balance of style and function that characterize all his furniture creations. The Nelson Pedestal Table Outdoor has been updated with hardy materials that will stand up to the elements. They offer an auxiliary surface to complement any grouping of outdoor furniture.

Stones are sourced from four North American quarries and are named after their home state: Georgia White Marble, a luminescent stone from the same source that was used to create Daniel Chester French's 1920 sculpture of Lincoln at the Lincoln Memorial; Georgia Grey Marble, a cloudy grey stone from the same location used in the 2004 renovation of New York's Museum of Modern Art; Wisconsin Black Marble, a unique dark stone speckled with lustrous green and grey veins; and Quebec Graphite Granite, a subtly patterned granite composed of deep hues used to rich effect in Chicago's John Hancock Center.

Once extracted, two centimeter-thick slabs of stone are cut to order with a knife edge derived from Nelson's original design and given an eggshell-like honed finish. Tops and bases are connected with a bolt that runs the length of the column to ensure strength and durability through years of use.

Two heights, two diameters of North American stone tops and two base finish options enable the selection of the right table, or tables, to suit any open-air arrangement. Also offered with a 17" dia. top.

George Nelson

George Nelson (1908–1986) was an American industrial designer, and one of the founders of American Modernism. While Director of Design for the Herman Miller furniture company, both Nelson, and his design studio, George Nelson Associates, Inc., designed much of the 20th century's most iconic modernist furniture. George Nelson attended Yale University, not originally intending become an architect. He happened upon the architecture school while ducking into the building to get out of the rain, and was impressed by an exhibition inside. He graduated with a degree in architecture in 1928. During his final year at Yale, Nelson was hired by the architecture firm Adams and Prentice as a drafter.
Herman Miller was a West Michigan businessman who helped his son-in-law, D.J. De Pree, buy the Michigan Star Furniture Company in 1923. De Pree had been working at the company, which opened in 1905, since he was hired in 1909 as a clerk. De Pree knew his father-in-law was a man of integrity, so he decided to rename the company after him. By the middle of the 20th century, the name Herman Miller had become synonymous with “modern” furniture. Working with legendary designers George Nelson and Charles and Ray Eames, the company produced pieces that would become classics of industrial design.
