TrueModern has been a leader in modern furniture design for more than 10 years. We design and manufacture top-quality functional sofas for the modern home with custom sizing available for many of our collections, all manufactured in our Los Angeles facility.


Founded by acclaimed modern furniture designer Edgar Blazona, TrueModern launched in 2005 with a collection of affordable modern furniture for children in 2005. The company has since expanded to include several original sofa and bedroom collections, ranging from ultra-modern to classic and sophisticated. We also specialize in corporate and commercial designs, and can manufacture with commercial-grade materials and specifications.


We offer more than 45 color choices, a variety of fabrics, and by-the-inch custom sizing on several of our collections. You can also shop TrueModern at more than 20 brick-and-mortar stores across the US and Canada.


All sofas are made to order at our TrueModern manufacturing facility in Los Angeles using regionally sourced materials whenever possible.

Edgar Blazona, Founder, CEO

Edgar Blazona has been in the furniture industry for more than 25 years. As a graffiti artist in high school, he launched his first business -- a graphic art company. He produced several commissioned art pieces for the City of San Francisco, legendary skateboard competitions, Lollapalooza, and other local iconic landmarks. In his early 20s, he discovered his talent for furniture design, and became a custom metal fabricator.  In the late 90s, he joined the team at Pottery Barn and became an expert in overseas sourcing and manufacturing.


He then launched Modular Dwellings, a prefab backyard shelter company, and pioneered what we now know as the prefab movement of the early 2000s. He ultimately partnered with ReadyMade magazine, making his MD100 plans available for sale to anyone who wanted to build their own.


In 2003, Edgar joined the team at Thinc, a San Francisco-based furniture and textiles design and marketing company, as Design Director and VP of Furniture. He designed and placed multiple collections in big box retailers like Target, Walmart, Office Max, Office Depot, Staples, and Home Depot.


In 2005, Edgar launched TrueModern, a company originally focused on affordable modern bedroom pieces for kids. The company expanded to include several original sofa and bedroom collections. Today, TrueModern is a nationally recognized modern furniture brand. In early 2014, TrueModern opened up its own manufacturing facility in Los Angeles, bringing most of the company's production in-house.


Edgar's work has been shown around the world at Sweden’s Ice Hotel, San Francisco’s Limn Gallery, and Bergamont Station Arts Center in Los Angeles. His designs have been featured in national publications such as Vogue, Dwell, Paper, the San Francisco Chronicle and ReadyMade.
