- Product information
The classic Nelson Swag Leg Group has the look, scale and function just right for today, 50 years after George Nelson designed them. The size of the desk is perfect for a laptop and mobile device dock and makes efficient use of space in your home or office. The tables work well in offices and meeting spaces and in your dining area at home.
What is a “Swag Leg”?
Herman Miller named this furniture group for the process that created the distinctive legs because designer George Nelson started with this idea: “Wouldn’t it be beautiful to have some kind of sculptured leg on a piece of furniture?” How could that be done without wood and hand-carving tools?
Using pressure to taper and curve a metal tube — the “swaging” process — proved to be the best way to produce the legs. Inserting a screw in the legs and rotating them in opposite directions makes quick work of assembly — and makes a strong joint too. You can assemble the pieces yourself and save money on shipping.
Choices for office or home
The Nelson Swag Leg Group includes a desk, a work table, a round dining table and a rectangular dining table. All have chrome bases with walnut stretchers. All have adjustable glides.
The work table provides plenty of room to spread out papers, while the dining tables double as meeting tables. Tops can be white laminate, or walnut veneer with a walnut veneer edge band that coordinates with the solid walnut stretcher.
Top: White laminate or Walnut veneer, with Walnut edge band
Legs: Chrome-finished steel-tube legs, 2 solid walnut stretchers and adjustable glides.
