Nelson Large End Table, Low Height
16" High x 28.5" Diameter Top
designed by George Nelson

At A Glance:
As with many of the pieces designed by the iconic George Nelson, his signature end table is characterized by clean lines and practicality. The round end table is a spot for flowers, a small lamp, a phone, an alarm clock or a coffee mug. First produced in 1954, the clean, graceful lines of the pedestal and legs are typical of Nelson design. He had a penchant for bringing grace to materials that didn't have a graceful reputation, and the metal base looks almost organic as it rises from the floor. This version of his End Table is 16" h x 28.5" diameter and works well as a coffee table.

Also available in 21" tall x 28.5" and a 21" tall x 17" versions.

What's To Like:
The Nelson End Table is beautifully balanced, with an alluring sweep of the legs into the post, and tastefully formed top. It's really a work of art. Plus, it can be so much more than an end table. It can work in home or office as a table in an informal meeting area, break room, or lounge; it's also perfect as a coffee table.

What's Not to Like:
It would be nice if the top came with a natural wood finish option.

The Bottom Line:
The Nelson End Table continues just as it began - as one of the most artistic pieces in Herman Miller's modern classics collection. George Nelson was a master of his craft, and his end table shows up in many a well-decorated home. It's a good way to add beauty to your living space.

Comments about Herman Miller Nelson Large End Table, Low Height:

This table is the perfect size for my living room. I couldn't be happier with the classic design and beautiful lines. My only complaint is the lack of quality control with Herman Miller. When this table arrived 3+ weeks after I ordered it I noticed a large scratch, and two smaller scatches on the underside of the table top. I tried to convince myself that it wasn't a big deal and no one would ever see it, because they wouldn't. But the more I thought about it the more the scratches got to me. It's not like I bought this table at [@] for $40, and even if I had I'd still expect it to be in perfect condition. This is a [$] table from Herman Miller! It should be perfect. Smart Furniture was very accommodating and asked to see photos of the scratches, they too were just a shocked as I was that something like this ever made it out of the factory. I own a lot of H.M. products and have never experienced anything like this, so I would still recommend Herman Miller. However, buyer be warned, and do what should have been done in the factory; thoroughly check over your new furniture.
