OUR NEW STUDIO

Over the years we've designed and commissioned furnishings locally and internationally. And while most materials come from off-island, the root of our effort is to "Use What Get." Kaua'i is flooded with invasive trees that are usually chipped after being cut. So while we see our native habitats depleting, we also see the opportunity for resourcefulness and responsibility: make use of this invasive over-growth and work with the local talent on Kaua'i to build holistically.

The studio, NOHONA, displays furniture made on Kaua'i from locally harvested wood, and plays meeting-place to our interior design segment by Design Concepts Hawai'i.

Nohona translation:

‘Ōlelo Hawai’i (Hawaiian language)

n. Residence, dwelling, seat, mode-of-life, existence, relationship.
