Made in Hawaii with Hawaiian Woods
Inspired by nature and fine art, Joshua Bowles is a Hawaii furniture designer who wields wood in a manner that’s exquisite, reverent, stylistic and surprising. His work encompasses a diverse portfolio from tables, desks and consoles, to bedroom and outdoor furniture, media centers and architectural details.
In order to shape every step of the process, he sources his own native wood, owns a saw mill and innovates furniture as one-of-a-kind creations. Each masterpiece is a creative expression of form and function and is brought to life in his studio on the North Shore of Oahu.
He hails from generations of wood workers, builders and master carpenters who centered their lives around nature and trees. His father is a luthier – turning wood for the love of music.
He studied design and architecture at University of Texas and honed his craft with an architect, a black smith and design professor. His influences include the legendary George Nakashima and he specializes in the art of Japanese joinery.
He works with businesses and individuals who believe that furniture is an expression of their values, imagination and spirit.
