Joel has extensive experience in the custom craft and building fields. After serving a formal apprenticeship with a master cabinet maker in his home state of New Hampshire, he moved to Colorado where he built cabinets, furniture and and managed the construction of fine homes in the Aspen area. Eventually, a move further west to Los Angeles lead to the evolution of his personal style, and aesthetic, and Joel Paul Design was born. In addition to his woodworking and design talents, he is also a stained glass artist and is well versed in metal working, custom patinas and stone inlays.
My mission is to provide my clients with high quality, functional and unique design. I believe furniture is an extension of one's lifestyle and should not only be pleasant to look at, but used, felt and enjoyed. If so desired, I welcome clients into the design process, as a personalized piece can provide ease of use and originality to any interior. It's a fun and satisfying process.
I specialize in sourcing, milling and fabricating reclaimed wood into distinctive furniture, rich with texture, patina, history and depth. This environmentally friendly practice, re-harvests centuries old trees and gives them new life.
In addition, I am also dedicated to the exploration of new environmentally friendly, technologically advanced materials with a distinctively modern look.
