not tiki, but i managed to pull these three lamps out of the same house, plus 2 more that will be used for spare parts as they were not in the best shape like these were.

This is certainly pre-tiki, but David O. Selznick and his wife had a great tropical themed pool house.

When I first saw the pics I fell in love with those murals, especially the one of Diamond Head. I thought what a shame it was they weren't for sale too, but then I read where you were able to salvage them after! So cool! I'm so glad you were able to save them--you just can't replicate the feel and look of vintage--close, but not the same. Congrats on that find!

been awhile, but here's another gem of a basement located here in the midwest. A friend of mine was house hunting and went to check out the basement (which wasn't shown in the listing) - After feeling around in the dark for the switch he felt what could only be bamboo on the walls. Once they got the lights on, this is what they found.

Love this light!
BUT when I look at it I see a version that IS tiki.
One with the round mid part is a coconut and the arms are bamboo and that
larger end part is just bigger bamboo.

At least that's how it would look on Gilligan's Island.
What a great job that would be, making props for Gilligan's Island TV show.

Great thread David.

That room is amazing (and huge!) I've literally dreamt of finding a house with that inside. It breaks my heart knowing some 'granite counter-tops and crown molding' people will likely buy it and rip it all out.

Thanks for all the pictures in the thread, all killer rooms. Wish one were within local moving distance!

been awhile since i could add to this thread but i went to an estate sale yesterday (second and final day of sale) and took some quick pics to document this basement tiki room for years gone by……




this was the enclosed back porch upstairs - cool atomic light fixtures.





this was the basement fireplace in the tiki room with built in grill and rotisserie

this pic is turning right in the room to go toward bar







this area is directly behind the first - keep in mind the room is in disarray due to the ongoing estate sale - its kind of a mess but you can get a hint of what it must have looked like in its heyday.




this is on the other side or planter wall partition.







vintage juke box




this is the bar- the barstools used to be orange with bamboo legs - these black ones were added in later years - the originals suffered damage over the years and were replaced. there was only one original bamboo stool left.










behind the bar shots





then there was a weird little annex room - you enter through a narrow door into this room -







i managed to get some smalls, a lamp and some leopard pillows that were overlooked on the first day of sale - there were two witco mask, a witco carved statue of jesus and a three foot carved palm log. other tiki central members grabbed those - maybe they will post pics here.


thats it for now - stay tuned, until the next one.

Always a joy to see your posts. That bar is to die for. It is all wonderful eye candy.

Greetings all and welcome back - i have another visual treat for you today. Went to an estate sale yesterday and though there wasn't much in the way of smalls or decor, It certainly was a cool room from back in the day. enjoy !!!

coming down the stairs the walls have this awesome stone wall paper




next to the door was a display of some sort - maybe a fountain ??






next to your right, along the corner is this sitting area.





next to that along the wall was a wallpaper mural - with an overhead soffet that hid a string of fluorescent lights to shine down on it.






working our way around the room we come to another sitting area.



and the entertainment area/ closet next to it.



and last stop on the tour is the bar area.
















the fish tank diorama is great - i love this old school old tech stuff. there is no glass on the front and the fish just hangs on a hidden piece of wood sticking out behind it to give it a the illusion of floating.









and now we bid farewell - this basement will most likely get demolished and its history gone forever. Thankfully we have this thread to keep these memories alive for the future generations of all things tiki and vintage.

until next time…… thanks for taking the time to take a look.
