De JONG & Co. was founded in 2014 by the De Jong family which includes two parents, two sisters, and three brothers. The primary principals began with the interior design of the eldest sister Ruth De Jong and the furniture design and manufacturing of the middle brother Peter De Jong.
Ruth De Jong is a production designer who has worked beside directors such as David Lynch, Paul Thomas Anderson, and Terrence Maleck. She now brings the same skill and creative eye to her interior design.
Peter De Jong has a fine woodworking lineage leading back to Edward Barnsley but comes from a varied background in experimental sculpture, music, high-end construction, and production fabrication. His furniture design has brought De JONG & Co. to leading design fairs such as ICFF and his products can found in boutique design stores across the U.S.
