Nel explore the genre issue and has a human and humoristic character. The lampshade represents men straw hat, typical of the portuguese region of Baixo Minho. The handles accentuate the humorist intention, because Maria (the other side table) speaks too much and Nel is amazed with her speech. The drawers have illustrations of the belongings of the character. Nel is destined for indoors, can be produced in different colours and can adapt itself to children, youngsters and adults.
