Made by George Nakashima in 1941, these 3 prototype lounge chairs were believed to be lost for 60 years until recently rediscovered by Moderne Gallery. These are among the earliest and most important pieces made by Nakashima—the first cushioned lounge chairs that he designed and made. They were produced as a part of Nakashima's first interior commission, the apartment of André Ligné, a French cosmetics executive.

Nakashima (1905-1990) was an American architect and furniture maker who is considered to be the father of the American Craft movement.

Price listed is per chair.
