When it comes to chairs, the George Nakashima Straight Chair is something of a work of art.

Designed back in 1948 and back in production via Knoll today, this is a mid-century gem, mixing American walnut and hickory, specifically contrasting hickory spindles against the American walnut legs and seating, all with a clear low-sheen finish to bring out the natural beauty.

Each Chair features George Nakashima's signature under the seat and sells for just under £550.
