Nelson Swag Leg Desk
An Iconic Mid-Century Desk that Inspires Creativity
The Nelson Swag Leg Desk is an accurate reproduction of George Nelson's Swaged-Leg Desk, which was part of a collection that debuted in 1958. The design features several signature elements, which together define this desk's distinctive look. From its colorful storage cubbies, to the sleek curved profile of its accented wood veneer sides, down to its sculpturally contoured legs, this iconic desk has a personality that exudes a fun mid-century sensibility.
George Nelson's Swaged-Leg concept was born out of a desire to include "some kind of sculptured leg on a piece of furniture," and thus a process of machine-forming identical and easily removable metal legs was pioneered. This process became a foundation for Nelson's Swaged-Leg furniture collection.
Inmod's Nelson Swag Leg Desk is as functional as it is stylishly mid-century. Its white melamine top provides ample workspace for a home office. Four bright-colored storage dividers create cubby-like compartments for desktop accessories. The largest compartment is wide enough to accommodate tablets and most laptops. Its sleek white surface is beautifully accented by its contrasting American walnut wood outer frame. The Nelson Swag Leg Desk's compact design is ideal for students and those with confined work spaces.
