About the Designer
George Nelson United States (1908 - 1986)
George Nelson began his design for what became the Swag Leg Group with the simple desire to create furniture with a sculptured leg. Beyond beauty, he sought practicality, insisting that the legs be made of metal, machine formed and pre-finished. The Nelson Swag Leg Group is a revival of an historic collection by George Nelson. Introduced in 1958, the group's evocative pieces have a look, scale, and function that are simply right for today. These classic, sculpted designs can be used individually or together in the home or office, from meeting spaces to offices and dining areas.

Lovely Middy Desk!

Finding the right desk was very challenging as I wanted style, function and modern. The two drawers are long with places to put many things. Two caveats: what appears to hold paper doesn't hold an 8x11 note pad. And on the cut colourful cubbies, none are tall enough to hold mail in an upright position, but are tall enough to hold your checkbooks upright. While there is no pull out keyboard holder, having the upper shelf to hold a flat screen monitor works well. The wood (walnut) is lovely and I like the clean white surface as well as the cubbies and drawers to contain clutter.
Iconic, stylish, and colorful!

I had dreamed of owning this desk for years, and finally made the purchase and could not be any happier. This with my Eames molded fiberglass chair is so perfect in my spare bedroom. Plus, the storage nooks help to keep the desk nice and clean. A must have for anybody that loves the iconic classics and designs of George Nelson or other high designers... All smiles! Oh so FAB!!!
perfect in every way

I love this desk. I have worked on it constantly for probably 3 years... It is a good size, it looks fabulous, it doesn't mark easily, it is exceptionally comfortable to sit at. Sure, it doesn't quite accommodate my laptop (I have it perched on the top). Did I mention that the desk looks amazing

This desk is the perfect size for a home office. It is beautifully designed. The only downside is that the drawers are very shallow.
arrived quickly and in great shape
