George Nakashima Memorial Gallery

Furniture inspired by conversations with trees

George Nakashima would have "conversations" with the wood he used to create his furniture, and being among his works is like relaxing in the middle of a forest. In 1964, Nakashima recognized the craftsmanship of Sakura Wood Workers, unrivaled in the world, and began collaborating to make furniture. Sakura Wood Workers later established this memorial gallery to share Nakashima’s lifestyle and philosophy with others. The gallery houses around 60 furniture pieces, including the precious chair he made early in his career as an architect and the desk that he used in his studio. Besides New Hope Studio in the United States, the George Nakashima Memorial Gallery is the only place in the world where you can view Nakashima’s work.
