Tommy Who?: Modern Tropical Design

Here's an antidote to Tommy Bahama: Sleek and modern meets tropicana. Whites, grays and neutrals splashed with acidic, citrus-y greens. Tropical breezes courtesy of botanical prints. Chic, transparent Lucite tables paired with comfortable, somewhat contemporary and traditional seating. Forget the pineapples in the pina coladas of a Bahama past. Tropical gets refreshing, hip and sophisticated, like a mojito. Don't forget the palm trees.
