Wood is such a warm and beautiful material for home interiors, isn’t it?
I’m not one for ceiling beams or wood panelling but floors and lovingly carved items of furniture are must-haves somewhere in my home, especially in areas where I otherwise prefer cold, clinical lines … like my kitchen.
Searching for something a little different, I’d seen these George Nakashima Bar Stools, above, some time ago, bookmarked the website – his studio is now run by his daughter, Mira, continuing in his tradition – and crushed on the Mira Chairs, Music Stand and Double Cross-Leg Desk, below, but I hadn’t quite realised how classic American Craft his work was. My bad.
I have now addressed my ignorance, read up on the man and his work, and am almost resolved to find a place for some appropriate combination of the gorgeous vintage George Nakashima Chairs which may be found in auctions, mostly in the US. Thank goodness for global shipping, right?
