Crave Worthy: George Nakashima Coffee Table

I am a huge fan of George Nakashima. His mid-century designs blend elegance with naturalism in a way that works beautifully. So, of course, I'm also loving this Nakashima coffee table and bench (inquire for price). Custom-built for a private commission in 1957, this table features American black walnut slabs on top of slender, Scandinavian-looking legs, which certainly ups the drama in the contrast between surface and supports. I especially love the raw edge on this piece, which lets the wood speak for itself. You'll have to contact the dealer for the price, but if you're lucky enough to live in Philadelphia, stop in at Moderne Gallery to take a closer look.
