This Pair of Greenrock Ottomans is an iteration on a design originally conceived by George Nakashima in 1974, part of a commission of over 150 pieces for the Japanese-inspired home of Nelson and Happy Rockefeller in Pocantico Hills. One of Nakashima's later designs, few were made, and they are relatively hard to find. This pair in American black walnut with East Indian rosewood pegs is signed and dated 1989. Nakashima (1905-1990) was an American architect and furniture maker who is considered to be the father of the American Craft movement.
