A modular system of storage solutions

The definition of classic is “a work of enduring excellence.” The Nelson Basic Cabinet Series designed by George Nelson in 1946 is a perfect example. Clean-lined, functional, and versatile, this modular storage system fits the way you live now and the way you will live tomorrow. It looks good and works well in any room in the apartment you’re starting out in, the house you move into, the condo you downsize to.

Modern modularity

Small, medium, and large. Drawers, doors, shelves, and sliding glass. Light Brown Walnut and Natural Oak. With or without legs. A wide array of options means you can begin collecting this furniture now and add more when you move or remodel or just want a different look. Use pieces in your bedroom now and in your living room later.

A custom-made look

These pieces look like the fine furniture they are. They’re also a system, with components coordinated in size, shape, and design. Create built-in, custom-made storage systems with vertical or horizontal arrangements—or both. Use them singly or with the Nelson Platform Bench in smaller areas. Eliminate floor space clutter and use every inch of space in any room well.

Handsome efficiency

Storage can be efficient and good-looking at the same time, and this system proves it. Designed for maximum usefulness and versatility, the cases and bases can be used equally well in living, dining, working, and sleeping areas. The variety of shelves, drawers, and cabinets provides efficient open and closed storage to accommodate your household items and personal things.

Basic solutions

The chest-cabinet combinations that make up the Nelson Basic Cabinet Series are manufactured with a minimum number of standard dimensions, which will remain basic and ensure ongoing flexibility through the years. And even more components will be available in later reintroductions.
