Jesse Doquilo Designs Modern Mid Century Furniture

Edmonds furniture designer Jesse Doquilo creates minimalist designs for his new line Modern Object

“I’m kind of a wood hoarder,” confesses Jesse Doquilo, the designer behind Edmonds-based furniture line Modern Object. “Each piece, each plank, each crop is definitely considered.” Despite his hoarding tendencies, Doquilo’s midcentury-influenced pieces are a study in clean lines and simple, minimalistic shapes.

Items like the walnut wood and metal “Kep” side table (pictured) are designed to display a single object. “Even though they’re simple and minimalistic, I think they have a lot of personality,” Doquilo says. In addition to his line of handmade home furnishings, the furniture designer and his wife, Laura, own Zinc Art + Interiors in Edmonds. The store features eclectic collections of art and accessories, including, naturally, Doquilo’s modern objects.
