High & Low Desk

We've admired George Nelson's Swag Leg desk (above, right) since Herman Miller re-introduced it two years ago — and now CB2 has unveiled a desk inspired by the design classic and available for just a little more than one-sixth the price of the George Nelson original...

The colorful and classic Nelson Swag Leg Desk from Herman Miller is $1,799 from Design Within Reach.

The Swoop Desk from CB2 is $329 (and is more practical with modern technology — the design features 3 cord cutouts!)

While we prefer the original, you have to hand it to CB2 for packaging a similarly-styled desk for such a low price point. Will this be the new, inexpensive desk that takes the place of the beloved West Elm Parsons Desk?
