The Nelson Swag Leg Desk is a fresh take and highly accurate reproduction of the original by mid-century modern designer, George Nelson. He was among the leading pioneers of the mid-century modern ideals where form meets function – and of course style!
The desk is made of high-quality materials such as solid wood, stainless steel and melamine.It’s sleek white top features colorful, eye-catching dividers that can add a splash of color or complement an already vibrant decor. Additionally, the vibrant dividers separate storage space for organization purposes and the shelf above them provide additional room for more desk space when working.
The style of the legs, similar to an upside down wishbone on both sides provide immense stability and strength. This desk is perfect for teenagers, children or as a small study area and work space for adults. It pairs nicely with many modern, mid-century modern and contemporary seating such as the molded fiberglass Eiffel chair, the upholstered wire chair and the Saarinen arm chair – all of which are highly accurate reproductions of modern classics.
My favorite aspect of this desk is the beauty of its form in a contemporary fashion with tiny pockets of color without being overtly attention grabbing.
It blends in nicely with other decor and furnishings and allows for more flexibility when it comes to designing the accent pieces and furniture around it. You can find this desk and the chairs mentioned above in high-quality reproductions at trusted online dealers of mid-century modern and contemporary furniture.
