I found a Bamboo Sofa for the Tiki Nui Lounge. I was looking through Craiglist yesterday and located a three band Bamboo pretzel sofa. I had been looking for a five but the price was right even though I had to go to San Diego (From Los Angeles) to pick it up. My wife went with me to make sure I didn't buy anything else from the thrift store.
As I loaded the sofa, my wife found a dated 1982 Kalp-son Rattan dinning table, four matching chairs and two leafs to expand the table. It will fit right into the Tiki Nui. I will show pictures of it when it goes in.
Here's the Sofa:
