1960's Original Vintage George Nakashima Studio Cherry Settee Sofa w/ Arms
Listed for sale is a fabulous settee or cushion sofa with arms, crafted by George Nakashima in the 1960's. This piece is an iconic example of the slatted lounge series, which followed a design language through the forms of both long settees and more slender lounge chairs.
This particular example is a 77.5 inch settee constructed from solid Pennsylvania Cherry.
Its finish is in lovely shape with nice patina.
The upholstery and cushions were just re-done completely by the same upholstery shop that has worked on these pieces since the 1950's. The upholstery is a Knoll Textiles fabric, which I think suits the piece quite nicely. The inner foam is brand new as well.
This piece is guaranteed as authentic and will come with appropriate documentation from Mira Nakashima along with documentation from the estate it was purchased from.
