Peter Loughrey celebrates George Nakashima in today’s his daily Auction Pick. “While many of his contemporaries celebrated the new possibilities of Modernist home design, George Nakashima rejected the style for what saw as an ‘imposed egotism.’ He became a leading voice in the midcentury craft movement, championing the holistic practices of older, richer furniture traditions.”
