Perfect  Traceability Furniture

Our furniture continues to thrive, fostering the universal design and our very original craftsmanship. 

Our furniture has deep roots in its origin, Hida Takayama Japan. Our products are made with materials felled in our region and are certified for the components perfect traceability. Hida cows (beef) , wild deer and wild boar that have thrived in our region’s wood forests as sustainable livelihood and resource for the Hida Takayama people over generations. It requires minimum 50 years for trees to mature so the wood is suitable for furniture making. Leather is a by-product from Hida beef processing which runs on a 3-year cycle. Our furniture making so heavily dependent on these life cycles of the key ingredients that we are constantly reminded of our close relationship with the nature. We wish to stay humble, tied closely to the nature of Hida Takayama, without imposing negative impact on it. We believe perfect traceability is how it all began.

We have recognized furniture as the indoor enviroment adjustment device. The wood in furniture stay “alive” while breathing continuously. We try to make furniture and to use with these "Live wood™" or "Cure wood™" has only air seasoning for over 10 yrs. without kiln dried. It plays a role as a natural conditioner, adjusting humidity, eliminating odor, releasing a few extractives that human can not perceive, but are very veneficial for us, would improve sleep quality, antibacterial, anti mold, and so forth (In 2019 we asked Gifu Prefecture Institute of Human Life Technology for analysis).   That is " Cure furnishing™" to heal tired contemporary people. We put every effort to minimize use of chemicals in our products. For customers with allergies, we can offer solid unpainted furniture.

HIDA Leather®

Historically, use of Hida beef hide was limited to small leather products and there were no known facts on other uses. In 2017, in hopes to boost the use of Hida beef hide in furniture products, we developed HIDA Leather, product registration number 6001390. This is the first and only known attempt to use specific brand-name cow hide in furniture. Under the rigorous Hida beef processing structure, the hide is refrigerated within one hour of slaughtering, which contributes to superior quality leather. The hide is handled by world-class craftsman with vegetable-based tannin. The leather with such tannin shows original marks and spots from the animal and ages nicely over time.

HIDA Leather® is registered trademarks (6001390) of HLF.

Our design

We do not design only to draw attention that aim for design that is unnoticeable, that feels as if it has been there. The most important thing is how long the furniture will be used. We do not change models easily.
