Nelson™ Swag Leg Desk


Although introduced in 1958, the Nelson™ Swag Leg Desk by George Nelson seems to have been designed to fit today's compact electronics perfectly. It makes efficient use of space and fits easily into your home office, kitchen, family room, or main living area. The addition of a handy grommet at the back of the desk allows for efficient cable management. Colorful cubby holes at the back keep materials organized and at hand, and one fits a laptop computer. Two molded plastic drawers store small items.
