Midcentury Bamboo Furniture by Tropitan

We came across this four-piece set and couldn't resist. It's by Tropitan of California, world renowned for its quality and style. The lines of these pieces are wonderfully sculptural, very Paul Frankl.
We don't come across vintage bamboo and rattan pieces of this caliber nearly often enough here in Texas, not to the extent that we have seen them in Palm Springs and elsewhere on the West Coast. You can see them -- two chairs, an ottoman and the yummy side table ($414 for the four-piece set) -- in the front of RetroMania.


  1. Cool set! It looks like it's in pristine condition.

  2. Thanks, Dana and FWF --
    The set is, in fact, in great condition -- even the cushions are great, which is lucky.
    Please stop in for a visit when you get a chance, and -- I'll just say it -- bring a cold limeade from nearby Braum's or an iced coffee from Starbucks (down 8th Ave., at Rosedale), because it's a tad toasty in the shop right now.
