Hida furniture originates from the Gifu prefecture with the central city of Takayama. The region, 5 hours west of Tokyo, is fully enclosed by mountains and vasts forests and is a region that is well-renowned for its furniture industry. Several Hida brands have originated in this prefecture and are still very much present there to date. Hida furniture is characterized and well-renowned for its artisanal production process of wood furniture that respects the tradition and craftsmanship that has existed in the Gifu prefecture during centuries. Hida furniture is considered as high quality furniture in high esteem among Japan and other Asian countries. All furniture originating from Takayama bears high standards . In line with tradition, the main component of Hida furniture is solid wood. No use of particleboard based wood is allowed. Oak, ash, cherry and walnut are the most often used woods, native to the Gifu prefecture, and are therefore sourced locally. Often combined with either wool fabrics or leather, it emphasizes the importance of using natural materials. The natural, organic and yet distinctive design of Hida furniture is still relatively unknown in Europe, however it is gaining in popularity with open minded consumers who appreciate quality and aesthetics. The Hida furniture combines perfectly with the more Western furniture style and provides a valuable addition for any contemporary, modernist or midcentury interior.
