Decorative-arts curator and consultant Cristina Grajales has been commissioning one-off furniture from Mira Nakashima for years—art dealer Perry Rubenstein happens to be the owner of two pieces, including a desk in his New York gallery. Now, Grajales and Rubenstein have produced a show of new work in the same redwood burl that her father used, yet with a more feminine air. For connoisseurs of George Nakashima's more muscular designs—some by the master himself, others re-created—dozens are being auctioned at Sotheby's.
