Pahonua is a premier homeowner resource based in Honolulu. It is owned by local husband and wife team, Andrew and Layla Dedrick, also known for long-established Bella Pietra Design and Geobunga.

The proprietors are experienced design industry professionals who directly import unique flooring and furniture products from around the world. They have sourced a wide range of specialty lava tiles with unique textures, wood furniture, ceramic and stone fountains, and statuary. While visiting their beautiful showroom, you might fall in love with a pebble mosaic for your shower or lanai floors, an inviting wooden day bed, or hand carved stone statuary to bring a peaceful element to your garden. All pieces are hand selected by the owners and displayed for your viewing in person and soon to be online. And because the Dedricks also own Geobunga, known for beautiful plants, you will find greenery, succulents and tillandsia airplants tucked among the flowing fountains and bright pottery.

Pahonua’s 2,000-square-foot showroom is inviting and inspiring and easy to get to on Nimitz Highway. The showroom is conveniently located in Na Lama Kukui Design Center with plenty of free parking.

Much of what Pahonua sells is intended for “bringing the outside in,” with the idea that your outdoor living space should be as beautiful as the interior of your home and the two spaces can blend.

“We live such busy, often non-stop days. Many of us leave our homes in the pre-dawn dark and return home as the sun is setting,” said Layla Dedrick. “Our homes should be a place of respite, rejuvenation and calm — or at least a space within our home or garden.”

Pahonua looks for items that are either weatherproof or are intended to age gracefully outdoors, such as hand carved teak benches, textured lava tile and basalt column water gardens. The owners are also working to identify the finest quality building materials for people who want to add a special accent to new construction.

Pahonua also offers custom designs for your specific project. The proprietors’ extensive knowledge of interior, architectural and product design allows customers to choose from numerous options, while creating unique solutions for their project. Bring Pahonua your design ideas or drawings and the knowledgeable sales staff will assist you with choosing finishes that are beautiful, practical and budget appropriate.

Pahonua’s goal is to provide individuals, designers and architects access to a unique collection of extraordinary, curated design elements for your home, office and commercial project.

Feel free to contact Pahonua for more information. The business hours are Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
