That place is awesome!! Great to see these hidden gems still out there. Too bad it's future looks pretty bleak.
Thanks for the post Sweet Daddy. Nice one.
Mahalo, TabooDan

The realtor pictures do not do the place justice - it's so much more impressive in person than in photos. I've toured the house twice now and took pictures both times, the first time with my phone camera, the second time with a proper camera. Some of the pictures are with the fluorescent lights on, so you can see details, and some are with just the coloured lights so you can get the atmosphere.













































































Intercom:



I bought this Tiki pole (?) wearing a lei of (full) Leilani rum bottle miniatures.











Does anyone know anything about this carving? I'll also be posting it on the "What is this?" thread.

Here are a few images of the family room that leads to the Tiki basement:



The couch is in beautiful condition, probably because it's too hard to sit on for long.

Oh wow! Please tell me someone is buying it and keeping all that way!

That Leilani Rum Lei is cool! The carving is Kanak style from New Caledonia. Not used much by mid-century carvers, likely a tourist piece.

They had one of these lights at the Kahiki.
My friend Brad bought it and I'm sure it's dead by now.

BUT, It was the coolest light, It was made with super fine ribbons of wood!
So that light is woven WOOD!

How could a person do that?
Just think of how hard it would be to weave wood in those sharp flips and turns.

I bet there are almost none of these left as they are so delicate.
Somebody needs to save these.

Can you buy this stuff?
That rattan light was at the Kahiki too.(the one above TV)

Man I would go back and get those three lights if you can.

Thanx for posting the pics.

Go ahead.

The relative who's selling the house on behalf of the owner has sold some of the contents, but I don't know if she'd be willing to sell the lamps. The two wooden ones are wired into the ceiling (not swag lamps), so their absence would be noticeable. They sure are nice though, and I wouldn't mind having one.

Thank you, they are one of a kind, there is no real way to categorize them really other than a one off style all their own.

I would try to buy them if I were you, or the one over the TV even.
Can't hurt.

You can put Tapa over that white cylinder in the middle and make it more tiki, this looks great while cutting down the light output as well.

Good luck.

Swag lamps are easy to replace/rewire, even if they're wired into the building. Offer to buy them, and supply a replacement at no charge. Those certainly are amazing lamps and worth the effort.
