I admired this set at a friend's house, and after seeing our tiki bar, they decided we would be a better home for it. They had it for many years and had some pretty hideous covers made for it circa 1980's. We had new cushions and covers made for it.

Interior Design 101, Always Sofa never Couch. A Couch is a entirely different type of seating appliance altogether. Here is an example of a Couch: then a Sofa and of course the types above: Like Ben thanks for letting me vint, on with the show.

P.S. I'm looking for a vintage set if anyone knows the where about? I will be going out to Palm Springs to have a look but if anyone is selling? or knows the where about of a nice Fan Set or other in Ca. please contact me. Thanks

No, but thanks for making me look.




We didn't even know, just liked the set. Anyway, thanks for creating a monster, we're about to bid on a matching side table on eBay!

Got this 6 band set in Oct. 2007 Just $200 bucks! It took me 2 trips in my van to get it all home. The dealer told us that he bought it from the estate of a former military couple who were posted in Japan after WWII.
They had it manufactured there and when they came back stateside, brought it back with them. Still has the original cushions with interior springs. It had been recovered with this awful stuff.










Manufacturers Tag




We figured that since it was so reasonably priced, after we bought it we could spend a bit more and get it recovered. So we found a good fabric sale and bought 18 yards of a brown chenille. We got help from My Mom to measure correctly and my Mother in Law did all the recovering. 13 cushions, 3 different sizes and all with 36" zippers.
We are SO pleased with it now!

Nice pad, 8FT! Great heritage on the rattan. Shows what a little toning down of white walls can do, too. Can you show a close up of that ceramic sitting couple, they look fine.
And when do we get to show off our Big Bamboo?

I am pretty new here, not alot of Tiki culture in NH, but I sure do love it.
Big Eames/Atomic fan.
I like rattan alot so I thought I would share my NH Craigs list score.
The table top is so very cool with a sort of "space scape" painting on it.
I searched along time for so rattan furniture for my Tiki Bar and was thrilled to find this set in excellent condition. I have not seen another like it.
Its a little blurry as the light is low but the flash is to much.
Sure are alot of great images on this thread.
If people are ever looking for Tiki albums let me know, my brother in laws buisness is vintage vinyl, hard to describe the amount of records he has.
Les Baxter albums look excellent framed and hung.
Best Regards

Great score and nice set 8ft.Not to hip on the velvet though.
I would have gone bark cloth of some type,there are so many
colors, and prints now a days without going flowers or hawaiian
print.Still a great looking set 8ft- really looks nice.
