10 New American Artisans We Love
Here, ten of F&W's favorite new American artisans including knife makers who use scrap metal, a Brooklyn vodka distiller and a pop-up brunch party.
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
