George Nelson Style Home Desk – Swag Leg Desk

This amazing desk is a high quality reproduction of the original swag leg desk that was designed in 1956 by George Nelson. George Nelson was an American industrial designer that had a great impact on modernist furniture design and created some impression furniture. Modernism was George Nelson’s main motto and this can be found back in his innovative furniture design. While this desk might have a retro look today, it was an amazingly modern piece for its time with its combination of materials such as chrome and wood, and the way in which the legs are bended. ┬áThe combination between the dark wood, chrome legs and colours makes this design into a unique and timeless piece of furniture.

This particular reproduction is of a high quality and as close to the original design as possible. The price of this George Nelson style desk is quite low considering its quality, thanks to the great reproduction Interior Addict creates. This desk could also be combined with other furniture from George Nelson, such as his clocks or coconut chair. He also used the same type of dark wood together with a white foot in his stunning storage units. I personally think that this desk will even be more recognisable as a George Nelson piece of furniture in combination with his Pill Desk Clock.
