Hawaiian monkyepod coffee table

This coffee table was inspired by modern Italian design. It features Hawaiian monkeypod wood table top with natural curves, sitting on a stainless steel flat bar base. It measures L36″ x W36″ x H16″. The monkeypod was salvaged from the north shore area on Oahu. Two long edges have been shaped with curves. The stainless steel base has been fabricated in Hawaii too.   Hawaiian monkyepod coffee table

custom headboard and closet doors made in honolulu hawaii

Our customer has recently sent us some photos of their newly decorated bedroom. The designer’s taste really shows. The white, green, brown, grey color palette really ties in well in this ocean front condo in Waikiki. The headboard and closet doors are made of sapele wood, stained to a “koa”-like color, finished in satin lacquer.   custom headboard and closet doors made in honolulu hawaii  

Koa wood

This exquisite Hawaiian koa slab table is made from 100% Big Island koa wood. The widest part of the table top measures 44″, narrowing down to 33″ on the opposite end. This wide koa slab is an extremely rare find. The base is inspired by the historically relevant George Nakashima’s table. The rounded leg posts and the arch make this table elegant. The arch helps create a durable structure, making it an extremely stable table. Photos

details of the monkeypod bench

Here is our waterfall bench made of local hawaiian wood, known as monkeypod. The continuous grain flows beautifully from one leg to the other. We kept the natural edges of the monkeypod slab for a dynamic design. The shelves are made of oak, finished with black lacquer. This handcrafted bench compliments a contemporary home very nicely.
