Boris Blai Furniture

Boris Blai was born in Ukraine and studied in academies in St. Petersburg, Paris and eventually under Auguste Rodin. After WWI, Blai emigrated to the US, where aside from his prolific art production, he was also instrumental in the founding of the Tyler School of Art at Temple University, the Long Beach Island Foundation of the Arts & Sciences, and other art institutions.
