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.

Herman Miller ® Nelson Swag Leg Computer Desk
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.

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
arrived quickly and in great shape

Beautiful, solid desk. Looks a little bit bigger in the room than I expected and is quite high – the chair I was planning to use is too low so now I need to find a matching chair with a higher seat height.
Most awesome desk ever

Think I got a bad bag of mixed screws as there was definitely not a correct set to put the desk together properly...Made best with what was there as I am not very patient and appears to be ok. That being said for the price paid would have expected the assembly to be a bit cleaner...holes lining up etc.
love this desk
barb from boston
stylish and sleek. I bought the Eames chair in white to go with it. Fits great in a City condo and very practical. Love it!
Herman Miller began in 1923 as a manufacturer of traditional residential furniture, became a leader in "modern" furniture in the 1930s and 1940s; developed lasting ties through the 1950s with legendary industrial designers who led the company in new directions; transformed the office furniture industry with the first panel system in the 1960s; invented and refined ergonomic work seating in the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s; reinvented the geometry of systems furniture in 2000, and is today the second largest office furniture company with customers and locations around the world. Their history of employee participation and ownership and technological innovation has long roots and continues to grow. They have always worked hard to be serious about both people and business. They look at their primary goal as creating great places to work.
George Nelson laid out five tenets of Herman Miller's design philosophy 50 years ago:
While fashion and style have their place, the main criterion for a Herman Miller product has remained constant: Does it truly solve a problem that people care about in a way that improves upon other solutions, or pioneers a new and better answer altogether? The answer is Yes.
