We picked up this 5 piece set a few years back at a yard sale for $100. The couch is 3 separate pieces. It has been sitting in one of our sheds ever since then. It had two layers of covers, both were in floral prints with blues & pinks. I should have taken a picture of it before hand, but I couldn't take the look of the print. Even the table has flowers on it. While we were in PA recently we went to a few shops and picked up this great vintage fabric. So the covering of the cushions has now been completed and I'm very happy with the results. So off to the cabana it went.







the 5th piece is the plant stand.

I second the fabric, nice stuff. Looks like a fun room to hang in. And I think that's the point!

Just scored this great 5 shelf wicker shelf at a shop today. It is in great shape and I love the tight weave of the wicker on the side. The color of it is excellent. Hope everyone else is finding what they like also.

Here are a couple pics of it.





Have a Tikimongous day!!

Craig

Thanks Bongo....where in Indiana are you from. I graduated from Speedway High School. My mom and sis still live in Speedway and my brother lives on a lake in Martinsville where they all have Tiki Bars on their docks.

Hey Kraig Nice score on the shelf. You may want to attach it to the wall with some screws and some type of washer as those can get a little wobbly when you start to fill it up. Great space for a bar you have there. The dark paneling will lend it's self well to some low mood lighting. Enjoy.

I just found this 3 section couch with cofee and end tables last week in Easton, PA. The set is by Beverly Hills Rattan and also includes a full dining room set (table and 6 chairs). I had already gotten the rocker about a month ago.

VERY NICE upgrades there Rugbymatt also like those two lamps you have! Is your tiki room a basement area? Are you putting the dining room set into your room? Hope you got them for a good $$! Thortiki

What's that coming in through my front door??



FINALLY, Craigslist gives up a vintage rattan bar in Kansas City!!!!!!!



Of course my cats had to inspect it right away




Wish it still had the stools with it. ;(



Has a great little pull out shelf to hold bottles and more.



Check out those hairpin legs!



This bar is fantastic and is so well made that you can sense it was created by real craftsmen and not just a shop cranking out cookie cutter cheapos.
ROJAS HOME ARTS furniture Cavite City, Philippines
I didn't find any previous references to this manufacturer here on TC but did find a site honoring the maker whose family provides the history of the company.

Furniture Business
Sometime in the mid 50s, Bernardo Rojas and Virginia Salcedo put up a furniture business named ROJAS HOME ARTS( main office and show room located at San Antonio,Cavite City near Sangley Point with another show room in Mabalacat, Pampanga). It sold rattan furniture to a wide variety of customers,most prominent of which were the officers of the United States Armed Forces stationed in Sangley point in Cavite City. This was a thriving business until 1962 when it closed shop due to their separation.

Great score 8ft! Nice mix of tiki and mod there with the rattan front and hairpin legs, never seen that before. Looks like nice solid mahogany, at least where the nameplate is attached.
Use it well!
Aloha,
