2. ADD WICKER AND RATTAN CONVENIENCE TABLES
Wicker and Rattan coffee tables and end tables are by nature tropical looking and are made by hand in the tropics. If you add these generally inexpensive tables to your sunroom and living room layouts you’ll go along way to achieving those more relaxed and comfortable tropical feel rooms.

3. ADD TROPICAL INDOOR PLANTS AND FERNS
Both live and imitation plastic live-like tropical plants and ferns can achieve a more comfortable and tropical retreat. If you choose live plants you will also help clean your indoor air as the healthy plants release body loving oxygen into the air and cleans it. When you add plants to a room you just seem to enjoy it more. Its more relaxing and inviting with plants both real and plastic.
Note our CONGO conversation collection below. This collection captures the heart of Africa with its two toned wicker and uneven hand made Rattan patterns. It will attract favorable attention from your friends who will wonder where you got such a beautiful wicker rattan sunroom set. The CONGO might even be described as a “primitive” group. It uses natural rattan poles as they come from the jungle. Therefore, there are often blemishes and/or discolorations. This is normal and expected. These distinctive markings give this set character and a totally unique look. The smaller materials are called croco and are always of varying sizes and colors and was specifically chosen for their “primitive” look. The room where the Congo is placed is even more rustic and stunning with the placement of the tropical style fern even though you cant really tell if its plastic or real.
Any Room Furnished with Tropical Plants and the CONGO furnishings will be transformed into a Jungle Oasis
