Bowie of Scotland has been hand-crafting fine furniture since 1966. Born and raised in Glasgow, Scotland, company founder James Bowie served a four-year apprenticeship in fine furniture making, as well as three years in woodworking college.

He brought his talents to America in 1992, and has since been commissioned to create truly outstanding pieces of furniture, establishing a unique niche with a discerning clientele who appreciate his one-of-a-kind custom pieces.

Located in beautiful Mendocino County, Northern California, Bowie of Scotland creates breathtaking, artistic furniture from materials of the highest quality. James will work harmoniously with you or your designer; his 34 years experience and attention to detail ensures the museum quality of your final piece.

Drawing on his knowledge of antique furniture, he can duplicate any piece you desire, from finely crafted Chippendale dining sets and Queen Anne writing bureaus in English walnut, to French Provincial and Medieval dining sets and four-poster beds. Each piece bears the hallmark of a finest quality antique, using authentic, traditional techniques and made under conditions similar to the original, which helps to "antique" the piece.

All pieces are crafted from solid woods, and the hardware is hand-cast in England and France. Video tapes documenting the construction of your custom furniture is also available, so you can watch your investment take shape. James designs every piece, and is assisted in production by a small team of European artisans.

If you want furniture with lasting quality, value and artistic craftsmanship, you want Bowie of Scotland.
