Design George Nelson™, 1952/2016
Walnut or White Ash, wood taper legs
Made by Herman Miller®

The Nelson Daybed is a versatile combination of sofa and bed. While it offers a surface for a moment of relaxation during the day, it is ideal as a lean, comfortably cushioned bed with removable back or side bolsters. Designed by George Nelson in 1950, it brought a minimal and honest aesthetic to interiors then. Today, its slender, beveled edge wood frame fits effortlessly into contemporary homes and offices.

The Daybed is available with either a walnut or white ash frame. The legs can be specified in either a hairpin metal with satin chrome finish or wood tapered in walnut or white ash to match the frame. The cushions can be upholstered in a variety of options. Ships ready to assemble.

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.
