Nelson™ Swag Leg Armchair


The genius of George Nelson is apparent in the Nelson™ Swag Leg Armchair, first introduced more than fifty years ago but completely contemporary today. The chair design is stylish and elegant, and it goes nicely with the Nelson™ Swag Leg Desk and Tables in home offices and dining areas. When George Nelson decided to use separate pieces for the seat and back of this chair, he created a design that lets the chair flex as the sitter moves. A slit between the seat and back helps prevent heat build-up. Wide, flat arms provide a comfortable resting place for your arms.
