Nelson™ Daybed

Designed by George Nelson for Herman Miller®
Sleek, versatile, and timeless, the Nelson Daybed fits effortlessly into a myriad of settings—including the bedroom, living room, office, or nursery. With removable back or side bolsters, it easily transitions from a sofa to a bed for a momentary respite or a full night’s rest.

Originally designed in 1950 by George Nelson, its reissue retains original specifications and crafted details like the beveled edges of the wood platform and rounded welt-cord piping of the cushions, a feature that distinguishes the original from imitations. Stainless steel hairpin legs or the tapered wood legs give it the classic Nelson touch. The cushioning is enhanced with dual-density foam for more support and durability while maintaining its lightweight aesthetic. As homes and apartments shrink in size, multipurpose furniture like the Nelson Daybed add a practical and sophisticated presence to any room.

Legs are available in two styles: hairpin (available in satin chrome) and wood tapered (available in walnut or white ash).
