A classic reborn

The process of bringing the Nelson Thin Edge Bed (1954) back into production began at the Herman Miller Archives, where engineers carefully studied vintage pieces and original drawings. In keeping with George Nelson’s vision for a collection capable of adapting to the times, this bed is now available in larger sizes that weren’t commonly available in the 1950s. Solid ash slats replace springs to accommodate an invention that also didn’t exist in Nelson’s day: memory-foam mattresses. Updated finishes reflect new technologies as well as the aesthetic preferences of today’s consumer: Walnut subs for stained ash, while white ash updates the original birch. Yet changes withstanding, the designs are utterly and unmistakably Nelson in their exceptional simplicity and clarity. This is the authentic Nelson Thin Edge Bed by Herman Miller. Mattress not included. Made in Malaysia.

Headboard and leg options.
The headboard is available with or without woven cane. Choose walnut with cane for a pleasing contrast, or white ash with cane — or no cane at all — for monochromatic minimalism. Base options include tapered solid wood or stainless steel H-frame legs. Twin, full and queen platforms ship fully assembled. King and California King platforms ship as two halves.
  • Solid walnut or white-ash frame.
  • Solid ash slates allow for air circulation.
  • Two headboard and base styles.
  • Legs available in solid wood or stainless steel.
  • Sizes and wood finishes reflect today’s aesthetics.
  • Compatible with the DWR Sonno Mattress (sold separately).

George Nelson

George Nelson

Possessing one of the most inventive minds of the 20th century, George Nelson was the rare person who can envision what isn’t there yet. Nelson felt that designers must be “aware of the consequences of their actions on people and society and thus cultivate a broad base of knowledge and understanding.”

Super nice.
Last bed I’ll ever buy.

Amazing bed but not enough wood options
Absolutely love our new king size bed - fantastic built quality. I am not a fan of the walnut after all however, it would be great if more wood options would exist, ie palisander or cherry. I would have happily spent more for a more refined wood type.
