Sam Maloof, dies at 93

Interesting designer of handmade furniture.

There's a great story about him, at one point he wanted to make his wife some furniture but couldn't afford any new materials, so he decided to use old crates and discarded wood, he might be one of the pioneers of recycling when it comes to furniture making. Another interesting point about Maloof, was he also resisted having his stuff mass produced, prefering to make all his product by hand.
