Chef Steven Zhao's Eight Cuisine in Sebastapol, California, used Durapalm Palm Woven panels for a feature wall in the restaurant's dining area. Little cubbyholes were then created to display art and decorative pieces, making a particularly interesting application of our woven palm finish. 

A little about the restaurant: when Chef Zhao first started creating the ideas that became Eight Cuisine and Wine, he knew he wanted to bring together a wide range of Asian flavors with the fresh ingredients found locally in Sonoma County.

Tea master David Rio's Chai Bar makes liberal use of our Durapalm plywood. 

This installation wasn't our first commercial installation of Plyboo bamboo flooring (that was 100 square feet of sand-and-finish at Elements on Sacramento Street, also here in San Francisco), but it's one of our most prominent early applications in our hometown of San Francisco.
