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 to 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.

Form and function
, less than two months ago.
The Nelson Thin Edge Bed is all that you can ask for in function, which is to say that it is completely sturdy (no creaky parts) and holds a good mattress in place. The design features that sold me are the slanted headboard and the thin minimalist legs/footboard. I was nervous that the cane option would catch on linens, but it doesn't and adds a lot to the visual appeal. Love this bed despite the LONG shipping process. Seriously, what is going on with the mysterious world of shipping furniture without tracking capabilities??
