20 years ago, INspiration Interiors opened its first showroom in the islands at Pearlridge Center. Now, the home furnishing store is back in the same shopping center with its newest showroom. Store manager Devin Furuta and sales consultant Reid Sato gave Hawaii Now host Kanoe Gibson a grand tour.
Locally owned and operated, the company is known for its modern and luxurious furnishings now featured at three showrooms; the Honolulu Design Center on Kapiolani Blvd, its West Oahu flagship at Kapolei Commons, and now, at Pearlridge Center.
“I like to describe our showroom as our own “Greatest Hits Album,” said Sato. “We offer the most popular and competitively priced items in our inventory. We also showcase name brand manufacturers such as Stressless, and Natuzzi Italia and Editions. However, our greatest asset, I think, is our staff. We are a close-knit family, and we strive to provide our customers with the utmost efficient and caring service. And that is our promise. ”
About INspiration Interiors
In 1997 INspiration Interiors opened its doors and welcomed in the start of “Home Fashion with an Attitude”. This first showroom, located at Pearlridge Center Uptown, delighted the homeowners in the fast-growing West Oahu bedroom communities. With a showroom of just 18,000 square feet INspiration focused on the growing global popularity of contemporary home and office furnishings, customer service and a multi-million dollar in-stock inventory for quick deliveries. From the start, INspiration’s furniture selections strived to be “quality driven instead of price driven.”
Satisfied customers have cheered its approval making INspiration Interiors the fastest growing furniture store in Hawaii. By 1999, it became apparent that many of the East Oahu homeowners, although excited by the popularity of INspiration Interiors, were hesitant to venture to Pearlridge Center showroom just to go furniture shopping. This growing need inspired the company to dream of a new, central Oahu location. A space that needed to be MORE than just another furniture showroom. It needed to be a space that reflected what customers loved most about our first INspiration… “a welcoming feeling of family, Ohana.”
After years of searching, creative planning and inspired dreaming, INspiration Interiors welcomed Hawaii to the multi-level, 80,000 square foot fashion forward Honolulu Design Center in 2006. More than being the flagship home for INspiration Interiors, the Honolulu Design Center is also home for the award winning, fine dining Stage Restaurant; the popular, wine tasting, music loving Amuse Wine Bar; the WiFi meeting, health casual lunch spot Stage Café; and creatively stimulating venue Cupola Events Theatre.
