Polinesia furniture style. While this remote paradise may seem a world away, you can still bring the look and feel of the South Pacific into your home with island-inspired furnishings and decor. In the tropics, light interiors keep rooms feeling cool and fresh. Walls are typically painted white or off-white, accented by natural wood trim, wood ceiling beams and wood paneling. Interior living spaces often open up to outdoor patios or balconies for a flowing transition between indoors and outdoors. The isolation of island life encourages the use of locally sourced natural materials, giving interiors a very organic feel. Allow plenty of natural light to enter rooms by using sheer curtains on windows. If you prefer a little more color on walls, go with a light beige or cover walls with teak or bamboo paneling.
Material and Texture. Texture plays an integral part in Asian style furniture. Surfaces can be smooth and shiny, because wood is either polished to perfection, painted, or lacquered. Surface interest is also created by using materials such as bamboo, paper, silver or gold leaf. Upholstery and rugs run the gamut from silk to jute and straw. This round cocktail table is from Hammary, and it combines some very interesting materials and textures that you find in Asian furniture. The deep dish top has a glass inset highlighted by a field of silver leaf. This is a take on an ancient art technique in which the underside of the glass is painted with an intricate pattern. The faux bamboo base has a soft black finish with a subtle red rub through.
