Saturday 1st February 2014, DO.II Designs celebrated its Corporate Launch at the DO.II Showroom – 292C Ajose Adeogun, Victoria Island, Lagos.

Founded by Ifeyinwa Ighodalo, DO.II Designs focuses on interior design, the production of high quality furniture, space planning and turn-key remodeling projects for the residential, property development, hospitality and corporate market. The highly stylish and well attended event declared DO-II open for business with extended product offerings beyond residential interiors to purposefully tailored designs and creations for the corporate and hospitality sectors. All high end quality furniture products proudly made in Nigeria.

“DO.II is a fresh take on something I have always loved doing for years” says the Founder.

By delving into new areas and lines of furniture and with the expansion of our production facility and showroom, it is our vision to be the first choice for high quality furniture and interior design solutions in Sub Saharan Africa” she concluded.

The exclusive event was graced by numerous dignitaries; some of the guests at the event included; Adejoke Orelope-Adefulire, the Deputy Governor of Lagos State; Dame Abimbola Fashola, the First Lady of Lagos State; Obioma Liyel Imoke, the First Lady of Cross River State; Mobola Johnson, the Minister of Communication Technology; Akin & Justice Tokunbo Kekere-Ekun; Aliko Dangote, GCON; Vice Admiral Dele Ezeoba, Former Chief of Naval Staff; Shola Oworu, Lagos State Commissioner for Commerce; Dr Doyin Abiola; Mr & Mrs Philips Oduoza, GMD UBA; Kola Karim, CEO Shoreline Oil Producing Company; Sola David-Borha, GMD StanbicIBTC; Dr & Mrs Christopher Kolade; Mr & Mrs Odein Ajumogobia, Mr & Mrs Rahul Savara, GMD CHI Ltd; Keith Richards, CEO Promasidor to mention a few.

Dame Abimbola Fashola, the First Lady of Lagos State alongside the H.E Obioma Liyel Imoke, the First Lady of Cross River State and Aliko Dangote, GCON conducted the cutting of the ribbon after prayers by Dr. Christopher Kolade. Customers new and old eagerly trooped in to see the exquisite display.

Spectacularly decorated, the DO.II showroom was a breathtaking statement of beauty and classic elegance! Guests were wowed as they experienced the detailed and unique craftsmanship visible in every DO.II creation brought together in an enchanting visual display.

The event, organized by Eventful Limited, started with a cocktail reception in the garden of the DO.II showroom at 292C Ajose Adeogun Street V.I Lagos. Guests were treated to sweet and savory canapés, luscious desserts and cocktails as they waited for the doors to be officially declared open by Dame Abimbola Fashola, the Guest of Honour.

On entry, the guests were greeted by the alluring scent of the DO.II Essence of the Month courtesy of Cececa, and vibrant tempo of the ‘feel good’ music wafting through inconspicuous speakers and music system provided by Woodstock Electronics. The DO-II experience catered to all the six senses of taste, touch, scent, sight, sound and soul.

The shop floor displays were uber stylish and awe inspiring! They were made even more magnificent by the ultra fresh floral arrangements courtesy of FlowerPlus, a bespoke floral design company. The works of art on display by various renowned Nigerian and West African masters that adorned the walls further enriched the space thus adding to the evening’s true expression of the various genres of African art, craftsmanship and the combined expertise of the various industry icons that collaborated on this event.

The statement piece of the night was definitely the Rectangular Base dining table and the “Tatie” dining chairs (every piece in the DO.II product line has a unique name). The Tatie dining set was gorgeously arranged with intricate silver urns, towering whimsical candelabras and elegant statement floral centerpieces of roses, orchids and casablanca lilies, stylishly complemented by candles and tea lights that gave the showroom a warm and magical glow. It was simply breathtaking and declared sold on sight!

Models adorned the furniture like Live Art as Tiffany Amber Nigeria showcased its Spring/Summer 14 collection – “Nirvana” in a style never before witnessed in Nigeria. The fusion of fashion and furniture was so aesthetically integrated that it was difficult to separate the two brands; giants in both their respective industries. The guests were blown away! One guest joked that they would go home with the whole set, the Romo armchair with fashion model in tow.

The Moët & Chandon bar ensured that guests enjoyed the finest champagne as they strolled through the showroom and were treated to the complete DO.II Experience!

It was truly an evening of Fun, Fine Art, Fantastic Fashion and Fabulous Furniture by DO.II!
