Make Your Home an Island Getaway with Tropical Furniture

While tropical dècor is always in style, it has evolved over the years. From bright, over-the-top tropical prints and a cacophony of colors, to more subtle nods to the tropics. Contemporary tropical dècor takes a laid-back, less is more approach that uses chic, sophisticated design elements. You’ll find soft, calming colors, sleek lines, and well-placed greenery. By filling your home with tropical furniture, you’ll create an island getaway the whole family can enjoy.

Basics of Tropical Furniture

Tropical furniture is usually made of wicker, rattan, or woven seagrasses or raffia. These materials add a lot of texture and visual interest to the tables, chairs, beds, and ottomans. Tropical furniture often features open-wood or woven wicker frames or intricate carving, as seen on the Bali Hai Quickship Shoreline Sofa with Fern Leaf Carvings and Bali Hai Diamond Cove Swivel Chair with Wicker and Rattan Accents, both from Tommy Bahama.

These pieces capture the essence of a tropical resort with a blend of Polynesian design and British West Indies flair. With a wide selection of customizable dining options and tropical upholstered pieces, you can create the exact tropical look you desire.

Natural Accents for That Island Feel

The natural accents found in tropical furniture give your home visual interest and a beachier, down-to-earth feel. The Los Altos Ivory Coast Bed with Woven Banana Leaf from Tommy Bahama gives tropical style a fresh, island feel. You’ll awake refreshed and rejuvenated each morning, ready to face whatever the day brings.

The braided and woven banana leaf, a technique indigenous to the Ivory Coast, gives the bed a nature-inspired and textural look. The technique has been applied to the headboard, footboard, and sides of the bed and is framed by knotty oak veneers in a linen white glaze that gives it a natural, weathered look.

Tropical-Inspired Colors for Soothing Appeal

Part of the appeal of tropical dècor is the vacation mindset it inspires. This mindset is all about letting go of everyday stress. Choosing a serene, soothing color palette will put you into the right headspace. As pretty as they are, bright tropical colors can be a little too much in large doses, especially in the bedroom where you want to relax. So, go for a neutral palette and bring in color with accent pieces such as pillows, vases of flowers, and other accessories.

In a surprising twist on tropical dècor, the Ocean Breeze Siesta Key Woven Bed with Rattan and Banana Leaf from Tommy Bahama features a peaceful seashell white finish on braided banana leaf. The leather-wrapped rattan posts bring authenticity to this charming look.

Finish If Off with Lush Foliage

When you think of the tropics, the first thing that comes to mind is lush, green foliage, bright blooming flowers, and dense, glossy palm leaves. Orchids, bamboo, and palm trees conjure up tranquil tropical beaches but use a light hand when adding foliage to your dècor. Strategically place one or two small potted plants on a coffee table or window shelf. Use larger plants in corners or unused nooks.
