Edgar Blazona is a modernist American furniture designer and founder of wildly popular DTC sofa brand BenchMade Modern. A high school dropout, turned graffiti artist, turned serial entrepreneur, Edgar got his start in the furniture industry because of need: he was young and broke, and his first apartment didn’t have any furniture, so he taught himself how to build some.
Along with starting several of his own companies, including Modular Dwellings – a prefab backyard shelter company, Edgar also sharpened his skills in the corporate world through working at the furniture manufacturers and retailers Pottery Barn and Restoration Hardware.
He saw customers accustomed to waiting months for sofas and sectionals that realistically take only a few weeks to make, and realised there must be a better way.
He founded BenchMade Modern in 2015 to disrupt this norm.
