The mid-twentieth-century woodworker Sam Maloof--one of the leading figures in the postwar studio furniture movement in America--was a voracious collector with an abiding generosity toward other artists. The home that he and his wife, Alfreda, created for themselves in Alta Loma, California--hand-built in large part by Maloof himself--was filled with art, and it provided a gathering place for the richly diverse and closely interconnected art, craft, and design community. The House That Sam Built, companion book to the exhibition at the Huntington, chronicles the development of Maloof's work from his earliest explorations of handcrafted furniture in the 1950s to 1985.
