Donald Gordon, rocking chair in Kauri wood

This rocking chair, made by Donald Gordon in the early 2000s, is a special object, a unique piece of furniture, the fantastic combination of creativity and craftsmanship, the epitome of why we love the Decorative Arts, as it knows no boundaries. Donald Gordon’s work is difficult to track down, with very few articles on a local New Zealand blog mentioning him, and only one sentence referring to his past rocking chair business.

This rocking chair is made of solid oak and kauri, a native wood of New Zealand. It features beautiful organic shapes and high quality craftsmanship. Observe the finesse of the backrest or the perfectly executed junction between the kauri and oak.

Reminiscent of Sam Maloof’s work, Donald Gordon inspiration most likely takes roots in the American studio crafts movement.

Light patina of time, minor fading and traces of use, very good overall condition. New Zealand, signed and dated 2004.
