This is our replica of the George Nelson slat bench. Is it a platform or a bench? We think it's both - also a table. Our interpretation of the handsome platform bench sits well in living rooms, vestibules, libraries - with or without people or stereos or artwork on it. Its slats, spaced so that air and light travel through, are natural maple. The legs are ebonized maple, finger-jointed for superior strength. Introduced in 1946 as part of George Nelson's first collection for designer, the platform bench, like many of his designs, has clean, rectilinear lines, reflecting his architectural background and his insistence on "honest" design.
