Philpotts Interiors approached the design of the Los Angeles-based Kings Hawaiian Corporate Offices with a blend of craftsmanship, functionality and cultural authenticity. They commissioned local artisans for the custom millwork and a majority of the art was sourced from Hawaii artists. Island-inspired finishes were used throughout the space including: basalt from the Big Island which catches the essence of lava and is used in the reception area and flooring; a custom-designed tropical wood screen provides visual separation between the reception and coffee bar.
“We selected Karndean for its beautiful gray color gradation, longer plank lengths and ease of installation. We couldn’t be more pleased with how it turned out.”
