American Artisans

Lostine (Philadelphia)


Designer Robert True Ogden creates simple, functional furniture that evokes a 19th-century Midwestern farmhouse. Look more closely, however, and the elegant, clever details reveal themselves. A sturdy maple butcher block table, for example, comes with a handy leather knife holster. A utility table (from $2,250) is topped with a gorgeous, hand-polished marble slab that is exceptionally smooth to the touch. Even his cutting boards have an unexpected twist: Each has a thick leather strap, so it’s easy to hang on a hook. lostine.com.—Christine Quinlan

We live in a time in which decent and otherwise sensible people are surrendering too easily to the hectoring of morons or extremists.

Bloodroot Blades (Athens, GA)

Upcyclers extraordinaire Luke Snyder (holding knife) and David Van Wyk melt down scrap metal, like an old car’s coil springs, and forge it into supersharp carbon-steel knives. The handles are often repurposed from a mix of resin and quilts, coffee bags or other fabrics. “There’s a story to each knife,” says Snyder. “You’re cutting vegetables with a Volkswagen and a handle made from your grandpa’s old jeans.” From $225; bloodrootblades.com.—CQ

Cricket Radio (Shelburne, VT)

Using techniques borrowed from traditional Indonesian batiks, Elizabeth Archangeli makes beautiful linens with a modern-ethnic aesthetic. She silk-screens Indonesian motifs, such as flower, leaf and bird prints, to create idiosyncratic designs. With soft fabrics and washed-out colors, the Cricket Radio table runners, pillows and napkins all have a casual, beachy feel. Up next: Archangeli is adding clothes, as well as linens inspired by ancient Egypt. Tea towel, $28; cricketradiovermont.com.—CQ
