Sam Maloof

Biography

Sam Maloof furniture is synonymous with high-quality woodworking. Throughout the 20th century, Sam Maloof rocking chairs graced the homes of celebrities and U.S. presidents, and one currently sits in the Smithsonian American Art Museum. A self-taught master woodworker, Maloof is the creator of thousands of handcrafted wooden chairs.

He was born in California in 1916 and immediately took a liking to woodworking, carving toys for himself as a child. After making furniture for his own home following his marriage, close friends began asking him to carve pieces for their houses. As word spread, Maloof started receiving requests and commissions from architects and designers throughout California.

He began his professional career in the 1950s, and the iconic Sam Maloof woodworking style was known worldwide a decade later. Get your hands on unique antique and contemporary furniture at online auction to enhance your home.
