Founded in 1984 by Robert Aibel, Moderne Gallery is an internationally recognized gallery for twentieth century decorative arts - with a primary specialization in work from the American Craft and Studio Movement from 1925 to 1990. This includes a large collection of work by Wharton Esherick, George Nakashima, Sam Maloof, Arthur Espenet Carpenter, Wendell Castle, David Ebner, Peter Voulkos, Paul Soldner, Edward Moulthrop, James Prestini and most of the major figures of the movement.
One of George Nakashima’s most original and innovative forms, the Long Chair was his late 1940s take on the traditional chaise longue. This version from 1952 was made in cherry with cotton webbing, and clearly expresses the architectural and modernist approach to design that dominated his later work.
