About the Artist:
George Nakashima (1905-1990), born in Spokane, Washington, was one of the most important furniture makers of the Modern American Studio Craft movement. He worked in New Hope, PA and his work is iconic and world known. Trained in woodworking and architecture in addition to furniture making, Nakashima had a vision that transcended conventional furniture making which emphasized and was inspired by the natural character of the wood. Following his release from an American internment camp during WWII, his designs got much attention globally: he designed furniture lines for Knoll and commanded his own commission-based studio. The Nakashima workshop is still functional, run by George’s daughter Mira.
This stool is one of hundreds of pieces of furniture that are available at our location in Grandview! Come in today and see the full collection.
