Goldilocks and Nakashima

 

...And when Goldilocks sat in George Nakashima's chair she felt it was just right.

Architect-turned-woodworker George Nakashima was born in Spokane, Washington in 1905. After spending some time in Paris, he traveled around the world before working as an architect with Antonin Raymond in Tokyo and Pondicherry, India.

On the joy of Woodwork: "We feel that pride in craftsmanship, of doing as perfect a job as possible, of producing something of beauty even out of nature's discards, are all homely attributes that can be reconsidered."
