In the year 1909, our founder Mr. Ching Sing Wo (C. S. Wo.), opened a small general merchandise store on North King Street in downtown Honolulu. As the Hawaiian Islands prospered, so did his store.
In 1947, when C. S. Wo’s three sons—Robert, James, and William—joined their father, they began an enterprise that has grown to become Hawaii’s leading furniture retailer. In the early 1980’s, the third generation of Wo’s entered the company and introduced a contemporary perspective and diversity to meet the changing times.
Over the course of a century and now into the millennium, the C. S. Wo family of stores continues to reinvent itself so that consumers have the most unique selection and best values in home furnishings. Though much has changed, what remains is our tradition of service to our customers and our communities in the best way possible.
Our flagship 40,000 square foot store at the entrance to downtown Honolulu continues to offer the finest quality home furnishings in the market. This store represents many of the best brands in the industry including Bernhardt, Century, Lexington, Elite, and Thayer Coggin. Additionally, leading designer collections are featured such as Tommy Bahama andd Barclay Butera.
In 2007, as we approached our 100th year in business, we were pleased to introduce C. S. Wo & Sons to Southern California. Our new flagship California store in the South Coast Collection (SOCO) features a 20,000 square foot showroom with specialty galleries: French Countryside, Tropical Living, British West Indies, European Modern, Cutting Edge Contemporary, Asian Antiquities, and Home Accents.
