Two Frogs Hugging is a family owned and operated business opened in 1997 to bring fine island furnishings to the people of Kauai. Rudy & Shanda Bosma were the owners of The Hanalei Mixed Plate serving island food in Hanalei Bay during the mid 90’s when they were inspired to tour all the Hawaiian islands in search of a new business to bring the best to the islands they called home.
Rudy writes “On a trip to Indonesia we discovered beautiful solid wood carved furniture that we fell in love with and knew all our island neighbors would appreciate as well. Also on this trip we stumbled into a stone mason carving a 5-foot statue out of stone of Two Frogs Hugging and we both agreed that this would be a great name for our new business of bringing this amazing furniture to the island. Two Frogs Hugging was born.”
We opened Two Frogs Hugging by slinging solid teak and mahogany furniture out of a 2- story old plantation house on the river in Kapaa and started importing all of our products from Indonesia and began making frequent trips there to re-stock. We also began making trips to China, where we brought back beautiful Chinese antique furniture and reproductions. This became quite a hit for our Kauai residents. In additions, Two Frogs brought in luxurious and comfortable beds, sofas and sectionals in various material and fabrics. Shortly after, Two Frogs headed to the Philippines and found beautiful bamboo furniture and high quality rattans with different weaves and combinations with hardwoods for every room…. perfect for our island style of living! And so the journey continues! We have moved to our new offices in the Lihue industrial park Phase 2 just behind the airport on Aukele Street. As our family has grown, so has our family of customers. By providing great quality natural products at great value, we are able to keep exploring and expanding our lines. Through our travels we continually search for cool and unique items which will be completely functional as well as beautiful in your home for many years to come.
Come in to the store and let our family share the spirit of Aloha and fine island furnishings with your family.
We hope to see you soon!
