Designer: George Nelson
The slim, elegant lines and sculpted legs of George Nelson’s 1954 pedestal table look as good outdoors as in. We’ve made it with materials that will stand up to the elements. The three available sizes can be used as side tables, coffee tables, occasional tables with chairs, chaises lounges, or sofas. With three heights, two diameters, four stone tops, and two powder-coat finishes to choose from, you’ll find it easy to create the tables you need to suit any open air arrangement.
To make the tables appropriate for outdoor use, we chose two powder-coat finishes for the bases and four durable stone finishes for the tops. Each type of stone comes from a North American quarry with a strong connection to historic American design.
Georgia White Marble is the same marble used for Lincoln’s sculpture at the Lincoln Memorial. Georgia Grey Marble is the same used in the 2004 renovation of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Wisconsin Black Marble is a dark stone speckled with lustrous green and grey veins. Quebec Graphite Granite is the same granite used on Chicago's John Hancock Center.
Once extracted, two-centimeter-thick slabs of stone are cut to order, and the tops have a knife edge derived from Nelson's original design.
