Fresh Cool Design with Tommy Bahama's Ivory Key Collection

Introduced at last market, and hitting showroom floors right now, Tommy Bahama's Ivory Key Collection is inspired by the enchanting pastel-painted home, crisp whitewashed roofs and pink sand beaches with the lush landscape of Bermuda.  It features the natural look and texture of woven raffia, finished in a stunning white with subtle parchment highlights

For example, the Southampton Poster Bed, which is on our showroom floor, combines these styles effortlessly.

With a nod to classic British architectural design, Ivory Key embodies the casual and colorful side of Tommy Bahama Furniture, with a distinctive quatrefoil and diamond design, complemented by a fresh palette of captivating island colors.  The headboard features the design over a raffia panel. Raffia is also on the footboard and side rails. 

We also have the Castle Harbour Rectangular Dining Table on the floor, paired with the Mill Creek Side Chair. The table may appear simple in design yet the fine raised outline of the leg, apron, and cantered leg adds an appreciated detail. With two 20 inch leaves, this table sits 6 to 8 people quite comfortably. The Mill Creeks chairs  feature a decorative back splat distinguished by the quadrefoil and diamond pattern, curved to ensure a comfortable dining experience. We have it in the standard fabric,  a linen weave construction in a light parchment coloration

What do we love best about Ivory Key?  Well, it epitomizes Tommy Bahama, speaking to the lighter and brighter side of island living.  The Shoal Bay chairs pictured at left are exactly as they appear on our floor, with a captivating upholstery color palette helps to create an island oasis that is right at home. 

Partnered with the unique Spar Point Chairside table, and blending traditional elements, leather-wrapped bamboo and raffia accents offers a spirited take on refined island living. The look is sophisticated but the lifestyle is casual and cool.  So come on by our showroom to check out Tommy Bahama's Ivory Key Collection soon, and feel the breeze!
