Nelson Tables

George Nelson, 1960

The Nelson Table, like all of George Nelson's creations, illustrates the designer's passion for detail: the chamfered edge exposes layers of the birch veneer top and imparts a look of elegant sophistication. The side table is available in two different sizes and heights – Table 5451 and Table 5452 – making it suited to a variety of different settings.
