Living on The Edge means having a space within easy reach for all the little necessities of home, from a table lamp to a compact stereo to a place to put down a drink or a book. Next to a chair or bedside, the solid walnut tabletop-cum-storage-cube has the sleek futuristic vibe of a built-in. Designed by Urbancase founder Darin Montgomery and fellow Seattle designer Trey Jones, The Edge features the thoughtful addition of a cord-access hole with leather trim to hide any electronic detritus. This timeless piece, like all wood furnishings from Urbancase, is also conscious of nature's timeline, sustainably sourced from domestic timber.

Darin Montgomery got his inauspicious start as a designer at about age 10, when he constructed a wineglass rack out of scrap wood from the family garage. He didn’t realize he needed to clamp the pieces together while the glue dried and so it fell apart when his mom picked it up. “It was known as ‘Frankenrack’ from then on,” he says.
Today, there’s nothing in the least bit scary about the luxuriously minimal furnishings from Urbancase, Darin’s Seattle-based firm. Starting out as a sculptor, he began to build custom furniture on a one-off basis. Working with partners Rachel Illingworth, Trey Jones and Brian Beck, the Urbancase portfolio has come to include furniture, lighting, textiles, tabletop objects and even custom interiors. Darin illustrates his pared-back philosophy with each elegantly reductive element.
