Original pieces are designed and handmade from domestic, locally sourced woods in this one woman shop located at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Madison, VA. Close attention is payed to every detail using both traditional and modern techniques to craft a piece that we hope will be in your family for many generations. Our natural rural environment and our passion for the modern design of the early to mid century inspire us in making our one of a kind products. The clean, straight lines of a table or bench are often juxtaposed with a funky edge, bright color, pattern, or a dynamic diagonal detail. Anything can be found from small items such as trays, charcuterie boards, and spreaders - to larger one of a kind furniture items, be they benches, mirrors, coat racks, dining room tables, armoires, or something custom made just for you.

As an artist we aim to integrate our different mediums. I, a textile artist and my partner a woodworker and artist as well, design and built each piece in our textile and wood shop studios in Baltimore, Maryland. In the creative process we are inspired by geometric patterns, exploring structures and forms that we find in the principles in which nature is constructed. Influenced both from the Mid-Century design and traditional Japanese techniques, we create functional and three-dimensional work of art. Along with our lighting collection we design and make home accents to complete our body of work focused in home decor and unique functional object.

I was drawn to furniture design by the clean, spare lines of Shaker furniture, and the functional style of the Craftsman era. I make furniture I like, the way I like it made. I like wood that doesn't hide behind heavy stains and factory lacquer. And I like furniture that does what it's supposed to do. A chair, for example, doesn't need to shout "I'm art", but it does need to look appealing and feel comfortable. To me, working wood is an absorbing challenge. It is taking heavy, rough lumber -- wood that might seem outwardly unappealing -- and opening that lumber up: Cutting, shaping, planing, sanding and smoothing until the wood is transformed into what I think is a beautiful and useful object, while still keeping the essence of the wood alive.
Nojo design's work is artist designed contemporary wood furniture. Each piece is individually designed and handcrafted using a blend of traditional techniques and modern technology.
