home-tommy-bahama2It should come as no surprise that Tommy Bahama Home, the brand legendary for its spirited and sophisticated interpretation of relaxed island living would find its greatest inspiration on the world’s largest island. The Australian continent dominates the vast Oceana region of the South Pacific. Its relative isolation evokes a passion for creative self-expression and indigenous style that served as inspiration for Road to Canberra, the latest lifestyle collection from Tommy Bahama Home. The collection celebrates the remarkable designs and captivating style of Australia.

The Road to Canberra collection showcases a dynamic blending of natural elements, including Quartered Ash and Mindi veneers, honed travertine tops, woven leather, aged metal, woven lampakanai, and even petrified wood. One of the featured design elements is the use of unique woven veneer panels on the fronts of key items that add texture, dimension and visual interest. Pieces are gently distressed, and finished in a light natural tone with a linen-white glaze that beautifully highlights the wood grain. Each piece of hardware in the collection is custom designed and finished in rustic bronze.home-tommy-bahama

Upholstered seating features a rich palette of colors and textures – Aboriginal patterns, hand-embroidered linens, natural wovens, and distressed leather. The pleasing neutral and tone-on-tone color story is punctuated with hues of spicy cinnamon, deep umber and golden saffron. In addition to fully upholstered frames, the assortment includes exposed wood silhouettes, woven leather frames, and designs that incorporate the unique woven veneer technique that is showcased on many casegoods items.

Embracing a casual Island lifestyle can be as easy as walking through your own front door. Road to Canberra captures the spirit and energy of Aussie attitude with the laid-back signature style of Tommy Bahama Home.
