THE SHERATON PRINCEVILLE,KAUAI. Adams Design was commissioned to design every aspect of this property's decor in  an Hawaiian Heritage motif. Reflected is research done in the Hawaiian Islands and in Massachusetts, focusing on the Missionary Period, circa 1840.  Each area tells a story of the era.  Shown here is the entry lobby which is casual, warm, and inviting, and the Cafe Hanalei which exemplifies plantation hospitality at its finest. CAFE HANALEI. This cafe typifies the colonial plantation style. Hawaii was colonized by the British, and the United States. The vocabulary of colonial architecture and furniture was a mix of traditional British influence and native or ethnic craft. In Hawaii, this blend was evidenced in the imported rattan and wicker furniture - English in design and Indonesian in fabrication. The chairs were dipped in white stain and weathered, the railing details are european, accented with cutout patterns derived from the Hawaiian quilt. The ceiling is regaled in these patterns in bas-relief. Ceiling fans were complimented by victorian style chandeliers.
