Moderne Gallery

Created by George Nakashima, these unique, custom-designed cherry consoles/cabinets were commissioned for the lobby of the Trinity Lansdowne United Methodist Church in Lansdowne, PA in 1955. The original Nakashima paper label is on the back, and it's signed with the client’s name, Stevens. Robert H. Stevens was the chair of the Church Furniture Sub-Committee and ordered and purchased these consoles/cabinets as a gift to the church.

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