The George N. Coconut Chair is a sought-after 20th-century furniture icon, which impresses with its unique construction and stylish look. It has a simple, original shape, and is wonderfully comfortable to relax in at home, in an office or lounge space. It is a truly versatile seat. In the designer’s own words, the innovative piece resembles a coconut cut into 8 sections. George N.’s architectural background makes for the proportion and balance of the form of the Coconut Chair.

About the Designer

See Full Collection of George Nelson

George Nelson (1908-1986) was, together with Charles & Ray Eames, one of the founders of the American Modernism movement. We like to think of George Nelson as "The Creator of Beautiful and Practical Things". George Nelson was of a generation of architects who found too few projects and turned successfully toward product, graphic and interior design.Based in Rome, Nelson met several of the pioneers of modernism while traveling in Europe. Upon returning to the US some years later, he turned to writing. Through his writing in "Pencil Points", he introduced Walter Gropius, Mies van der Rohe, Le Corbusier and Gio Ponti to North America. At "Architectural Forum" he was a first associate editor (1935- 1943) and later consultant editor (1944-1949). He defended, sometimes ferociously, the modernist principles and irritated many of his "industrial designer" colleagues who, according to Nelson, bowed too easily to the commercial forces in the industry.

  1. Alexandre Morley

    First I wasn’t paying much attention for this Coconut Chair but after a couple of encounters online, the look of this design definitely persuaded me! Just placed an order of 2 with this website on their Black Friday night and I am more than thrilled

  2. Maude Neale

    It looks fragile but I guess you have to sit on it to see it’s really sturdy due to its brilliant design of the 3 legs triangle. Good product and excellent service

  3. Hilary Welsh

    Very simplistic and sleek look, and it works as an accent piece beautifully! Bravo for this Coconut Chair!

  4. Siena Haney

    Ordered twins of this Coconut chair and me and my husband just love it so much, we got each the black and white aniline and they complement each other brilliantly.

  5. Irfan Childs

    I strongly recommend getting a pair for this coconut chair replica since you would be offered good deal!

  6. Atif Leach

    All of George Nelson’s design are so simple and aesthetic! We love this coconut chair and will definitely recommend this beautiful item if you’re a fan of midcentury modern like us

  7. Mack Rocha

    What a great product, I normally just curl up like a cotton ball sitting on this Coconut Chair, it’s too comfortable for a mid century modern item, which is normally just “for show” ya know. But you will be definitely with this chair like me

  8. Charlize Bass

    This Coconut Chair | George Nelson is so simple yet beautiful, tbh I never thought who would come up with this shape for a furniture design but yet look at these. I’m custom ordering my pair in cigar brown, the swatches I got were a bit more toned absolutely loved it

  9. Imogen Booker

    Simply unique yet functional, I called in to check if the coconut chair was in stock lucky it was so I didn’t have to wait for long. Very satisfied with my whole purchase

  10. Tracey Snow

    This coconut chair original is obviously stunning, but if you ever considering getting a reproduction, I would recommend this site, high quality yet competitive prices. I already have one in dark tan only thing I wish it had copper legs, that would make the chair look more vintage
