George Nakashima


The beauty of nature always inspires the work of the late furniture designer George Nakashima. It was a major milestone for furniture design to allow a tree and the wood itself to instruct the design of the finished furniture piece based on its grain, shape, and defects. Embracing this beauty created a furniture-making dynasty that last today and is evidenced by the high auction prices for his work.
