Made by Herman Miller

"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 tables are available in different sizes to coordinate with other furniture pieces, serving as a spot for flowers, a small lamp, or a coffee mug.

Herman Miller founder D.J. DePree saw an article in a 1945 Life magazine featuring George Nelson's Storagewall unit, which was causing a sensation in the furniture industry. He was so impressed that he paid a visit to Nelson in New York and convinced him to be his director of design, which spurred Nelson to found his design firm, George Nelson & Associates. The warm personal and professional relationship between Nelson and DePree yielded a stunning range of products, from the playful Marshmallow Sofa to the first L-shaped desk, a precursor of today's workstation.

The Nelson pedestal side table is available in two height options and features either veneer, marble or laminate tops. The laminate or veneer tops have a maple edge and the stone tops have a knife edge. Each table has a sculpted, tapered pedestal base and offered in your choice of finish options.
