Nelson Small End Table by Herman Miller
21.5" High x 17" Diameter Top
designed by George Nelson
At A Glance:
As with many of the pieces designed by the iconic George Nelson, his signature end table is characterized by clean lines and practicality. The round end table is a spot for flowers, a small lamp, a phone, an alarm clock or a coffee mug. First produced in 1954, the clean, graceful lines of the pedestal and legs are typical of Nelson design. He had a penchant for bringing grace to materials that didn't have a graceful reputation, and the metal base looks almost organic as it rises from the floor. This version of his End Table is 21.5" h x 17" diameter.

What's To Like:
The Nelson End Table is beautifully balanced, with an alluring sweep of the legs into the post, and tastefully formed top. As an end table, it brings art to an oft-overlooked piece of furniture.
What's Not to Like:
It would be nice if the top came with a natural wood finish option.
The Bottom Line:
The Nelson End Table continues just as it began - as one of the most artistic pieces in Herman Miller's modern classics collection. George Nelson was a master of his craft, and his end table shows up in many a well-decorated home. It's a good way to add beauty to your living space.
