Various precedent studies were referred, ranging form local to projects abroad. Different types of timber and varnish were experimented to achieve the resort-look we were after. Naturally, the "tropical" mood to suggest heavy weaving patterns, detailed ornamentation that of Bali. The design was revised from time to time, excess details are reduced each time to finally achieve the "modern tropical" concept.
"Tropical" mood is too often associated with south east Asian designs, especially those of Indonesia. These designs always feature sophisticated ornamentation, complicated weavings and excessive use of timber. Our "Modern Tropical" strives to achieve the relaxing ambiance of Tropical mood, minus all the unnecessary details, to make this great concept applicable to a modern home.
