We design to cultivate stillness in the busy currents of the life you lead.
Our furniture is created with an emphasis on craftsmanship and inspired by design movements of the past, particularly Danish, Modern, and Minimalist. We believe in simple design using natural materials and organic forms, while focusing on function and comfort.
LIGHTING AND DECOR
We carefully select designers and manufacturers of lighting and decor whose aesthetics complement our Edtoba furniture. Our pieces are curated to serve our focus on creating spaces that are spacious sanctuaries; each item exemplifies clean, simple design and function.
We are a design studio made up of thinkers, doers, and makers, based in Brooklyn, NY. We offer end-to-end design services for residential and commercial projects, from architectural and interior design to project management and complete buildout.
We want your home and workplace to foster spaciousness and ease while reminding you of the vibrant world beyond — the experiences that make you who you are.
