A great day for Bonsai as we opened our second showroom, named
'Elements'. At last we have a place to display our growing
portfolio of products and services! Elements contains most of our
flooring range, together with doors, hardware, furniture and a
wealth of fitting and finishing accessories from paints to oils,
lacquers and cleaners.
To help celebrate the opening we invited the original Big
Bonsai were contacted by London-based interior designers Two D Limited to produce a range
of bespoke furniture for a private client of theirs. Wth a series
of their sketch ideas in hand we set about designing and eventually
producing a stunning set of pieces that we are truly proud of. The

Bonsai took two stands to show off their wares at the 2008 Home
& Lifestyle show at Beau Sejour.
This was the second outing for these stands which represented
the culmination of a great deal of hard work from the whole team.
Our main stand focused on flooring and other interior products,
whilst the other stand featured an outside decked area, Sunfold
sliding/folding doors and an interior oak
For the 2007 Liberation day celebrations, Guernsey put on
something a little different. Named 'LIBJAM', an extreme sports
park was erected at North Beach and Bonsai were proud co-sponsors
of the skatepark.
Hojo's owner Dave Matheson approached Bonsai to help transform
his new venture from its old incarnation as 'La Perla' to Hojo. Bonsai were one of the main
contractors having supplied and fitted: an unusual aged and
distressed oak floor; Sunfold aluminium sliding/folding doors; a
heavy duty walnut entrance door and a bespoke serving hatch made
from American Black walnut. Hojo has gone on to
Bonsai's first public exhibition at Beau Sejour Leisure Centre
along with a host of other local businesses. We had a small stand
in the main hall and put our company car up in the main
foyer. We also auctioned £3000 of timber flooring and donated
the proceeds to 'Aid Reaching Children' foundation.
The winners of Bonsai's timber auction for the Asia Tsunami
appeal had their flooring fitted as part of their home renovations.
This was no ordinary installation as Bonsai hand-distressed the
wood on site to give an authentic reclaimed look that matched with
the client's decor. Househunter magazine found that it was a great
success and the clients were thrilled with the result.
