La Dolce Vita

| August 3, 2015 | Parties National

The Party
To kick off the launch of the immensely stylish and modern furniture line Cassina, Inspiration Loft—Inspiration Furniture’s top level at Honolulu Design Center—went all out. With a soiree aptly named Tutto Italiano—“Everything Italian”—the team called upon two other Italian legends, Ferrari and Tod’s, to create an exquisite evening.

The People
Owner of both Honolulu Design Center and Inspiration Furniture, Thomas Sorensen provided a warm personal welcome. Joining him were his wife, Michelle; and children, Daniel and Julia. Cassina’s Allyn Davis flew into Honolulu to show off classic pieces and new creations. Also present were Tod’s General Manager Sanford Lee and his affable team, who presented gorgeous sacks and shoes from the latest collection.

The Highlights
Guests were treated to a spectacular sight on arrival. JN Exotics, Ferrari’s local dealer, presented a California T in Mugello. From there it was up the escalator to Inspiration Loft, where they were greeted with delicious Sgroppino cocktails topped with lemon sorbet and bites from Stage Restaurant. Of course, it was mandatory to try a piece of imported Grana Padano cheese freshly sliced from an enormous wheel. –Photos by Travis Okimoto
