Nelson Basic Cabinet Series Combination 1 by Herman Miller
designed by George Nelson


Nelson Basic Cabinet Series Combination 1 At A Glance:
Even more beautiful in combination with each other than they are alone, the pieces in the Basic Cabinet Series by George Nelson express his desire to simplify life while creating a work of beauty. Expand your storage space; minimize distraction. Available in rift-sawn natural oak and rich light brown walnut veneers. Choose this combination, or create your own.

George Nelson's vision was a living space full of things that had purpose and place but were flexible enough to change. In 1955 he stated, "People today no longer inhabit large houses with large rooms ... furniture has to fit these new dimensions comfortably and gracefully. Moreover, it has to be flexible." He created the Basic Cabinet Series in that spirit, and it has now been re-introduced by Herman Miller after being out of production since 1958.

What's To Like:
The 2 Drawer, 2 Door Cabinet provides storage of items large and small, and the Platform Bench with the Open Cabinet with Drawer give your miscellanea a home while you sit and take off your shoes. This combination is really perfect for a welcoming entryway.

What's Not to Like:
The price seems a bit much to us, but if you're looking for Mid-Century Modern, the alternatives out there don't get much cheaper. This stuff is as functional as it is attractive.

The Bottom Line:
The Nelson Basic Cabinet Series simply reminds us that less is more, and that Herman Miller makes some of the finest furniture out there. Despite its price, the Nelson Basic Cabinet Series Combination 1 is no exception. It's versatile, sturdy, and built to heirloom-quality standards.
