Nelson Thin Edge Chest


Design George Nelson™, 1952
Plywood, veneer, polished aluminum, metal
Made by Herman Miller®

The Nelson Thin Edge Chest offers abundant storage in a classic and streamlined mid-century modern style appropriate for many uses in your home—bedrooms, guest rooms, office, family room, dining room. It is available with three drawers or four, all of which have soft-closing slides, and in a variety of beautiful and sustainable wood veneers.

Suits Any Décor

To help you match the décor in any room in your house, we offer numerous options for the Thin Edge Chest. It is available in santos palisander—a sustainable wood that shares the rich, deep grain of rosewood—and also in walnut, white ash, and a combination of contrasting light and dark veneers. Choose pulls in white or silver aluminum alloy. And while the chest has a matte black finished back for use against a wall, you can have it fully veneered if you would like to use it in a freestanding position.


The Nelson Thin Edge Chest is made of 64 percent to 85 percent recycled materials and is 88 percent to 91 percent recyclable at the end of its useful life. It’s more likely that should you ever need to “recycle” this cabinet, you’ll do so by giving it to someone in your family or to a very close friend.

Beautiful Details

This is obviously a George Nelson design—from the polished aluminum legs to the refined mid-century look of the piece as a whole. Choose pulls in white or silver aluminum alloy.
