Herman Miller reintroduced its iconic Nelson Bench with a metal leg option at ICFF in May, and it's just become available for purchase. The new iteration features chrome-plated metal legs, a more delicate profile, and is available in three lengths (48, 60, and 72 inches). Have a preference (new vs. old)? Weigh in.
