Fifty years ago, the creation of George Nelson's Swag Leg Group (1958) began with him asking "Wouldn't it be beautiful to have some kind of sculptured leg on a piece of furniture?" An idea was launched, but the designer had to figure out how to make the legs of metal, machine formed and ready for quick assembly. The solution turned out to be swaging, a method of using pressure to taper and curve a metal tube. Nelson had found a way to make his sculptured legs. Right for home or workspace, the newly reintroduced Swag Leg Dining Table features solid walnut stretchers that are screwed to the legs for added stability. The walnut veneered top has coordinating walnut veneer edging for a uniform profile. As with the original, the Swag Leg Table comes ready to assemble, making shipping easy and economical. This original is an authentic, fully licensed product of Herman Miller, Inc. Nelson is a trademark of Herman Miller, Inc. Made in U.S.A.
