The classic Nelson swag leg desk has the look, scale, and function just right for today, 50 years after George Nelson designed them. The size of the desk is perfect for a laptop and ipod dock and makes efficient use of space in your home or office.
The desk is has solid walnut sides, back and stretcher with a white laminate top. A grommet for cable management has been added to the back of the desk. Colorful cubbyholes at the back keep materials organized and at hand, and one fits a laptop computer. Two molded plastic drawers store small items.
George Nelson started with this idea: "Wouldn't it be beautiful to have some kind of sculptured leg on a piece of furniture?" How could that be done without wood and hand-carving tools? Using pressure to taper and curve a metal tube--the process called swaging--proved to be the best way to produce the legs. Inserting a screw in the legs and rotating them in opposite directions makes quick work of assembly--and makes a strong joint too.
