The Nook Chair By Henry Sgourakis


Description from Henry Sgourakis:



When I think back to my childhood, my fondest thoughts are of running through my grandma’s house playing hide & seek. (the big post-war house on 3 acres of Australian bushland in outer Melbourne) I remember the mottled colours of the 50’s decor and, in stand-out white, the cro-cheted lacework doilies that decorated the sofa arms and the coffee table. (and well most surfaces in the room) I wanted to create a piece that drew on such warm memories, and would evoke the warm and comforting sensations felt as a child, reminding me of the simplicity of life as it was. In a world where technology seems to almost dictate our existence and when our childhood feels like a different lifetime, it is important to me to remember the past and carry those memories into the future, the beauty of this hand-crafted piece does just that.
