The definition of classic is “a work of enduring excellence.” The Nelson Basic Cabinet Series designed by George Nelson in 1946 is a perfect example. Clean-lined, functional, and versatile, this modular storage system fits the way you live now and the way you will live tomorrow. It looks good and works well in any room in the apartment you’re starting out in, the house you move into, the condo you downsize to.
The solid wood Nelson Miniature Chest, inspired by Japanese design, provides lots of wonderful little spaces to keep wonderful little things. Made with hand-fitted drawers—the kind of American craftsmanship designer George Nelson insisted upon in 1952 and that is harder and harder to find. Offered in several sizes and drawer configurations, with or without pedestals, these chests make an interesting addition to any room in the home or office.
Adding to the Nelson Thin Edge storage portfolio, an expanded set of options present the opportunity to bring the quintessential Nelson aesthetic into the bedroom and beyond. It was George Nelson’s ongoing endeavor to standardize and organize the objects of everyday life and to do it in a minimal and practical way. Creating elegant storage options was a significant part of his life’s work, as were his delightful sofas and chairs.
