What Houzz contributors are saying:

The favorite. “My favorite piece is a George Nelson for Herman Miller Action Office 1 rolltop desk from the 1960s,” Nguyen says. “It’s finished in the less commonly found light blue, and the tambour top is a beautiful walnut that looks seamless and solid when closed.”The piece fascinates Nguyen because it’s both beautiful and clever, he says. “From the front, it looks simple, but once you start exploring, you find all the details that make it so worthwhile — things like the hidden molded wood file bin along the back side that runs flush with the desktop, or the deep, tapered drawers that look like they’re only 1 inch tall from the front,” he describes. “I purchased it from a home in Tennessee and am still trying to acquire the 15-foot matching CSS-like wall unit that originally was specified with the desk.”
