Here is a video interview with Steve Matson and his Moving art. Moving Art is something you MUST see in person! Come to any of our Pictures Plus or Diamond Head Gallery stores to see it in action!
Here is the setup photo of the video interview of Steve Matson at the Pictures Plus Home at Kahala Mall. Looks a bit messy in this shot but the video footage we took looks great! We will be creating the video within the week and you be able to see his concept on Moving Art.
It was actually my very fist time seeing his Moving Art and I have to say, I was pretty amazed. With the work he has done on some Hollywood movies such as Star Wars III and Narnia, I could see the concept behind Moving Art.
Make sure to stop by and check out his Moving Art when he is at the stores!
Here is an article on the Star Advertiser on Koa and how popular it is. Our very own Devin Sasai from our Kahala store chimes in to explain our direction on Koa with Koa furniture.
Pictures Plus Home features furniture made with both solid koa and veneer. The company’s best-seller is a koa veneer entertainment center priced at $2,195, said Devin Sasai, operations manager at the company’s new Kahala showroom.
It takes six to 10 weeks for the factory in the Campbell Industrial Park to complete a custom-made piece made from Big Island koa. “We only use the top two grades of koa,” Sasai said. “This ensures that we have the most curls and best colors.”
Lower-priced, mass-produced, imported items such as accent tables, bookcases and television stands are also available at the Kahala showroom. Consumers must choose whether to buy pricier locally made pieces or less expensive prefabricated furniture, Sasai said.
There are a lot of things our organization tries to do to help the community when we can, usually in the form of donated or discounted framing. We have done an art event at the Kaneohe Marine base for over 10 years.
On Sunday we were able to raise over $6,000 for charity that will go to many great causes including, but not limited to wounded soldiers. We are all very insulated from the reality of what our military does for us and how fortunate we are to live in the United States of America. We are not perfect, but compared to other countries we are clearly the safest, fairest and country with the most opportunity. read more…
Here are more great ideas for framing. Many of these things you would never think of framing but they really tell a story. Once you display these story-telling items in a frame they become great conversation starters (as well as beautiful focal points).
This framed map has push pins recording the spots visited and memorabilia from various Manhattan landmarks. It makes a great visual impact and it’s a great way to remember your vacation.
A lot of work went into this handmade shell lei so don’t just hide it away in a box where it will get tangled and damaged. Show it off!
These small framed trinkets are antique, sculpted models of various stringed instruments from the Far East. This is something that will draw people in for a closer look.
