like father, like daughter…george and mira nakashima…

ooh, thank you apartment therapy for starting my saturday off right with an introduction to the beautiful george nakashima woodworker website!

his daughter mira’s keisho collection (meaning “continuance” or “succession”)  uses the same artisans that were trained by her father. the website is worth exploring:  quiet, lovely and filled with love and and a deep respect for nature and craftsmanship…

and finding beauty in imperfections…
