Furniture Ideas for Relaxing Tropical Home Design

Bring the relaxing feel of the beach into your home with fresh, tropical interior design. Perfect for summer time, the tropical chic style is lush, tranquil, and has an exotic touch. Stick to natural, neutral colours, such as warm beige, light greens, and creamy yellows. There are a few main aspects of tropical home design, so choose your furniture pieces based on the following themes:

Tropical Home Design: Rattan Furniture

Native to the tropical climates of Indonesia, the Philippines, and Sri Lanka, rattan stems are popular choices for furniture construction because the plant is lightweight, strong, and extremely resourceful. It can also be stained and painted like regular wood. Rattan furniture gives off a beachy, relaxed vibe, so opt for pieces constructed of this sustainable material.

Tropical Home Design: Bamboo Furniture

The fastest growing wooden plants on earth are bamboo stalks, harvested mainly in South and East Asia, making them another practical wood. So, bamboo is not only sustainable, it looks fresh and summery. Plus, it’s exceptionally durable – bamboo flooring and house frames are becoming very popular because of their resistance.

Tropical Home Design: Sea Grass / Banana Leaf Furniture

Sea grass and banana leaves are used a lot like rattan – and they are also a sensible furniture construction choice. They are both different in colour compared to rattan, and can really give off an exotic flair.

Tropical Home Design: Wicker Furniture

Wicker is fibers woven tightly together, used for manufacturing baskets and furniture. There are plastic wicker pieces out there, but those do not generally give off a tropical style, since it’s all about the natural look. It’s a great choice for outdoor furniture, since it can be treated to be weatherproof.

Hardwood
Softwoods like pine, fir, and spruce have more of a winter look with their knots and lighter shade. Hardwoods like beech, mahogany, and rubberwood are generally richer in colour, exotic-looking, and much more sustainable.

Animal Print
Nothing says tropical like animal print! Zebra, cheetah, giraffe, leopard, or crocodile – any animal print gives off a wild, jungle theme to a living space. Just be careful not to overload on patterns – a hint of animal skin is enough to tie into the tropical style.

    I love the Powell Carmel Dark Mahogany Dining Table with Glass Top. When you’re not eating dinner, it can still serve as a console table, featuring amazing decors.
