The Origins Group was created by George Nakashima, widely considered one of the world’s greatest craftsmen in wood. Origins has been called “one of the most stimulating and thoughtful concepts of furniture design ever to be presented.” This is due, in part, to Nakashima’s deep understanding of natural beauty and of the aesthetic values in home surroundings.
