I have posted this many times but since the thread moves on, I will say it again. I have friends with a house full of Nakashima. Maybe a dozen pieces in the public rooms I have seen. No idea what is in the back rooms. They all get used all the time. Benches, a desk, end tables, coffee tables dining room table, chairs. Nothing non-functional about them at all. My friend's parents had a subscription with him and, as I understand it, they sent him money every month or a few times a year and he would make and send them stuff regularly. Like a farmer's co-op share. Or something like that.
Imagine all these thousands of USD invested in Champagne and Cognacs on the same scheme,mmmm.
