Japanese-Inspired Furniture from Hedge House

Issue 62 · Japonesque · March 5, 2013

Japanese style by way of Indiana? For a few years now, we've been mooning over the (unavailable in the US) Truck Furniture line, so we were excited to discover Hedge House, which offers well-priced, handmade furniture that eerily evokes the spirit of our favorite pieces from Truck.

Owner Philip Mast says his interest in furniture "was sparked while attending college for graphic design; on several occasions, I found myself envying how the furniture design students were able to design and build functional pieces of art." Fast forward 10 years, and Mast (after working in television for a decade) is designing furniture in his home town of Goshen, Indiana. He works with "two amazingly talented Amish wood workers, Elva Bontrager and Daniel Schrock, who build out of their shops at home and execute Hedge House designs with a consistent quality." To see more, go to Hedge House.
