Description

Merton Bench pairs with Peter De Jong’s companion dining table or functions ably on its own as occasional seating. Inspired by  Shaker furniture, it has a remarkable solidness and longevity, crafted in a choice of solid oak, walnut or maple. Merton’s angled-leg configuration is elegantly stable, with a substantial 2 1/4-inch-thick top surface  and is carefully milled, assembled and topped off with a hand-rubbed oil and wax finish.

Brand

De Jong & Co.

De Jong & Co. couples spare modernism and an organic sensibility with sustainably sourced solid wood furniture and tabletop accessories, painstakingly handmade by skilled craftsmen in its downtown Los Angeles studio. “Our furniture is a result of viewing traditional forms through a contemporary lens,” says founding designer Peter De Jong. That nuanced aesthetic and dedicated craftsmanship—expressed in American solid woods such as maple, oak or walnut—results in pieces built to withstand trends, daily use and generations.

The De Jong siblings—Peter, a furniture-maker; Philip, an art director; and Ruth, a production designer for filmmakers such as David Lynch and Paul Thomas Anderson—crossed their respective careers in furniture making for the 2014 launch of De Jong & Co. Design. Production continues under Peter’s exacting eye, drawing on a remarkable scholarship that includes the nation’s top sculpture program in Richmond, VA, and apprenticing for two years with master Evan Lee, a disciple of Edward Barnsley, the legendary British Arts & Craft icon.

As Peter observes: “Whereas most of our designs look like they would be easy to reproduce and replicate, every single piece has at least one or two moves that make people go for a double take.”
