Koa Wood Furniture By Robert Lippoth
Robert Lippoth specializes in creating astoundingly beautiful custom koa wood furniture. Since 1998, Robert has worked from his shop on the pristine island of Maui. The furniture Robert creates is made from the endemic and indigenous wood species found in Hawaii. Robert believes in using only the best grade koa and local Hawaiian wood. His signature style mimics flowing lines, tapers and curves found in nature. As a result of careful attention to detail and hard work, Robert is known for creating koa wood pieces that reflect the awe-inspiring color, harmony, and beauty of the islands.
Robert’s Hawaiian wood furniture and sculpture is exhibited at the Hana Coast Gallery in Maui. His koa furniture has been internationally commissioned throughout the Pacific Rim and the mainland. Robert has a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Woodworking and Furniture Design from Rochester Institute of Technology in New York. His expertise also includes Interior Design, and Architectural Millwork.
“Often it is in nature that I ﬁnd the most inspiration. Even a single blade of grass represents a perfect example of a subtle curve and gentle taper. When I design a piece I think of it as sculpture in the format of furniture. The individual love and attention I give to each piece is evident in their aura and spirit. These pieces have heirloom quality.”
