Dubai based, The Bowery Company is a destination for the urban customer seeking affordable contemporary furniture with an industrial edge. We aim to bring back a design age that focuses on manufacturing, mechanical ingenuity, appreciating raw and unfinished interiors. Think visible trucking and pipes, distressed metals, cold charcoal grey mixed with rich dark warm wood, exposed wall bricks and raw Edison-style bulbs. We want to create a cohesive and meaningful experience to your space with an urban signature that combines simplicity and an utilitarian edge with rough textures and unfinished materials.
The industrial design rebirth hue can evoke the feel of a factory, warehouse or laboratory that brings character and weight to any space. We consistently look for unique factory-chic furniture, accessories and lighting with a bold accent, either with a distressed and weathered wood edge, rusted metals, choppy paint or sleek metals lighting. Headquartered in Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates, we offer our Middle Eastern customers access to the latest edgy furniture designers from New York. When looking for our design objects, we consistently find the tension between past and future, sophistication and rebellion in timeless pieces that can stimulate your space. Great style is not limited to the amount of space you have, thus we encourage our customers to mix and match different pieces to create a blended vibrant and unique interior.
About the Bowery
The Bowery Avenue in Lower Manhattan in New York is running just a mile from Chinatown up to Fourth Street where it breaks up into the Third and Fourth Avenues and then disappears. The Bowery is short in length but long in legend. It is an Anglicization of the Dutch “Bouwerij” derived from an old Dutch world for “ farm” as in the 17th Century, the area contained many large farms. The Bowery is the oldest thoroughfare on Manhattan island.
During the second half of the nineteen century, it was leading to Post Road, the main route to Boston and gained the reputation of “cheap trade without being dishonourable”, it was the second principal street of the city. Later, it started to gain in respectability and elegance and began to rival fifth avenue as a glamorous address. It has afterwards lost its glow during the 1920s through the 1970s due to impoverishment and was considered at that time New York City’s “Skid Row” where commercial activity started to grow and the Bowery became specialized in used restaurant supplies and lighting fixtures. Once known for its cheap bars and flophouses, the Bowery emerged during the last twenty years from its very edgy past as a vibrant posh area with artistic galleries and trendy stores consistently shifting between its past and its future. Our brand is strongly linked to the Bowery as we aim to connect a raw edgy style with a more sophisticated signature to create a hybrid contemporary look with an industrial touch.
