In many ways, the X-Leg Table (1950) was the first multi-use table designed by George Nelson. Nelson worked in his home and office, so much of his work draws no clear distinction between these spaces, and the X-Leg is no exception to that trend. This versatile table tackles dining, entertaining and working with equal effectiveness. Its large rectangular top provides ample usable space, with sturdy tubular steel legs that offer great support. Accommodating by design, X-Leg pairs well with everything from dining chairs to task chairs. Adjustable glides adapt to uneven floor surfaces. This is not a folding table. This original is an authentic product of Herman Miller, Inc. Nelson is a trademark of Herman Miller. Made in U.S.A.

The first modular storage system ever, it was showcased in Life magazine and caused an immediate sensation in the furniture industry. Read more >
