Description

George Nelson was an architect, designer, writer and teacher, as well as Herman Miller’s design director from 1945 to 1972. He did his work at home and in his office (and probably every place in between), and his lack of distinction between those spaces shows in the multifunctional furniture he designed. The X-Leg Desk (1950) is a versatile table that 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 is the authentic Nelson X-Leg Deskproduced by Herman Miller, Inc. Nelson is a trademark of Herman Miller. Made in U.S.A.

  • Available finishes: Walnut top with chrome legs; santos palisander top with black legs; white laminate top with ash band and white legs.
