Works from the Collection of Robert & Eunice Faber
In 1951, Robert and Eunice Faber took a road trip that led them to New Hope, Pennsylvania and to the doorstep of George Nakashima. The artist gave the couple a tour of his workshop, explaining his design philosophy and his passion for crafting soulful, practical and unique creations. They fell in love with all of his works, but the young newlyweds could only afford a modest coffee table at the time (Lot 175). In 1965, they were able to purchase several more works by Nakashima to display alongside their cherished table, adding to what would become an eclectic and unique family collection.
