Director of design at Herman Miller from 1945 to 1972, George Nelson helped make the company what it is today. He not only recruited influential designers Charles and Ray Eames and Isamu Noguchi but also created a portfolio of work that helped shape and grow modern design. Providing a balanced combination of style and function for homes and offices alike, his Pedestal Coffee Table (1954) is adaptable to many spaces and uses. From living room to waiting room, this table accommodates everything from vases and mugs to books and magazines. It features the clean lines and elegant simplicity typical of Nelson, with a round top covered in laminate or veneer mounted on a polished or white aluminum base. Self-leveling glides adjust to uneven floor surfaces. This is the authentic Nelson Pedestal Coffee Table produced by Herman Miller. Made in U.S.A.
