The Nelson platform bench with its beautiful lines and made from sturdy maple is an eternal classic. Designed by George Nelson and manufactured by Herman Miller, the Nelson bench is one of those pieces which is instantly recognizable. We were lucky to score one extremely under price at a clearance sale and find that it’s perfect for our hallway.
Perhaps inspired by the Nelson bench is the Haruki Slat Bench, available at Urban Outfitters. Made from solid ash, the Haruki bench is 55" wide and 16" tall and features verticle and horizontal slats. Like the Nelson, the Haruki may be used as a bench or coffee table.
