Sam Maloof, R.I.P.

Iconic furniture maker Sam Maloof died last week at 93. It's impossible to quantify his influence on furniture and the world of craft. He's one of a handful of artists whose work will last well beyond his own life.

Here is an excellent obituary from the Los Angeles Times.

Here is my post about rocking chairs that includes some photos of his work.
