Headquartered in downtown Honolulu the financial center and business hub of the state, we've worked with new start-ups, large Hawaii Business Top 250 corporations, international organizations, schools, resorts, restaurants, and federal, state and county governments on projects. We're passionate about our clients, and driven by the desire to create efficient, inspiring workspaces tailored to fit each project's needs. Our knowledgeable team members listen to every client's unique design goals before suggesting specific solutions.


If necessity is the mother of invention, then form should follow function. We represent some of the most cutting-edge, technically advanced furniture available today from the US, Canada and Europe.


We only carry the best of original furniture design, and never work with manufacturers that knock-off or imitate the work of others. Big or small, our partners put quality first. Take two of our leading brands: KNOLL and DIRTT:

We're proud to be Hawaii's dealer of Knoll®, the internationally renowned modern design manufacturer. Knoll office furnishings have garnered hundreds of awards and some have even been included in the permanent collection of MoMA in New York City. We're also proud to be the local partner of DIRTT, the innovative manufacturer of sustainable, intelligently designed modular walls, doors and floors.


Our experienced staff drives solutions for tomorrow's workplace with an integrated approach to problem solving that fuses information, technology, communication and relationships with its business partners, manufacturers and customers.


To us, being green is about more than a trend. We are committed to working with companies whose initiatives support current needs in a way that will not prevent future generations from having valuable resources.  At CEI, we align ourselves with manufacturers who implement sustainable methods to provide quality products to our customers.


As a veteran-owned small business, we’re experienced at delivering design solutions to our public-sector clients. Over 90% of the products we sell meet military and government specifications.
We fully understand the procurement process, and always strive to maintain the highest level of service to our clients to make it an effective and efficient process. We’ve successfully worked to complete projects for a large number of military and government branches in Hawaii and around the Pacific Rim, and maintain comprehensive certification.
