Having all held positions at the highest levels in the interior design industry, we believed it was time to join forces. Whilst we all have very different skills, we believe our shared attitude towards design and life creates a new, fresh paradigm.

One that is based on team ethic, collaboration and flexibility. Every Bowler James Brindley scheme is undertaken with a rigour and vision. Our name is deliberately abstract, but has meaning and purpose. Bowler and James and Brindley are historic family names of the company’s directors. We are proud of our English heritage and our company reflects an English attitude of eccentricity, understatement, quirkiness, and inclusion.

We work for leading hotel operators, elite residential developers, and bespoke bar and restaurant owners. We employ carefully selected and like minded interior designers and architects. Our studios occupy the top floor of a grand building on Devonshire Street in the W1 district of London.
