The best of West Coast and Japanese studio furniture and lighting

Kozai Modern gallery brings together an exclusive and tightly edited collection of the best local West Coast studio furniture and artisan lighting, complemented by select chair and lighting lines from Japan.

Our collection reflects mid-century modern design, a less-is-more aesthetic, and our open West Coast sensibilities with superb craftsmanship. Most importantly, our pieces celebrate the unique character and personality in each and every piece of hardwood. Our name Kozai is a term used by Japanese craftsmen for hardwoods.

Whether Canadian or Japanese, our artisans design from a thorough understanding of material and craft. Their clean designs meeting both functional use and ergonomic comfort.

Kozai Modern was opened in 2003 by Ron Cromie, a long-time resident of Japan and China, having a fascination for furniture and furniture making. Soon joined Hideki Shimizu from Tokyo, Japan, who studied fine arts in the U.S. and London with a passion for design and a keen eye for detail.

Our clients are increasingly international and we ship just about anywhere in the world including Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, China, Japan, London, the Middle East and Mexico.
