There is nothing quite like George Nakashima Furniture. Of course a good deal of furniture is attractive, but how often would you call it pure poetry?
Born into the eternally green forests of the Pacific Northwest, woodworker George Nakashima was known for crafting elegant, artful furniture that never strayed far from the tree. Motivated by a desire to release wood’s inner soul, Nakashima advocated using wood with burls, fissures, and nicks. He celebrated in giving wood new purpose. Indeed, renewal is a theme that carries throughout George Nakashima pieces. Just look at the Knoll-produced Straight Chair. Yes, that’s exactly what you think—the Windsor Chair reincarnated.
