Slatted Settee (1960s)
Made by Nakashima Woodworkers
This is a fabulous settee, crafted by George Nakashima circa 1966. This 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 48 inches and is constructed from solid walnut. The finish is in nice original condition. The upholstery is quite fresh as well and appears to have been recently done (I would guess by the upholstery shop that works with the Nakashima Studio based on the quality and details). The foam is comfortable and fabric has great feel. The price listed is for one settee. We previously had a pair of these, so the photos show photos of one example. They came from the same original owner and were commissioned at the same time. The settee measures 48 inches long by 30 inches tall and 35 inches deep.
