We have a sweet spot in our hearts for art and curated spaces, so we were thrilled to feature our Louis Ghost Chairs at an intimate private dinner party at the Honolulu Museum of Art, coordinated by Current Affairs. As one of the world's leading international fashion houses, the client couldn't have selected a better venue. Needless to say, our iconic Louis chairs felt right at home amongst the other works of art.
Held in the Mediterranean Courtyard of the museum, tables were set in this outdoor space, surrounded by collections of European and American art. The variety of textures in this space is absolutely beautiful and for those who haven't visited the museum, it's a must see spot. For all you design buffs, the architect Bertram Goodhue used paving stones made from Chinese granite slabs (which in the early 1800s served as ballast in ships transporting Hawaiian sandalwood); Chinese green glazed tiles; Hawaiian lava rock from Kaimuki; and flagstones cut from aggregate stone from Molokai*.
We especially love the juxtaposition of the modern lines of our ghost chairs with the organic elements and stonework in the courtyard--not to mention the blend of "east meets west" architecture that's infused throughout the property.
Throw in the right food (oh yea, drinks!), great company, environment and decor, and you've got a killer recipe for an amazing evening.
Are you ready for your next dinner party?
