In metropolitan areas with a dense population, private outdoor spaces come at a premium. Although there may be a large rooftop garden or pool deck, some apartment or condo buildings offer a small balcony for private use. Even without an expansive, lush yard with a deck, a balcony or terrace can still become your outdoor oasis.
When shopping for new furniture, customers hear the terms “modern” and “contemporary” thrown out often. Although these descriptive words carry much of the same connotations, they each bear minor differences that can greatly affect how a set of furniture can turn out. When used to describe furniture, these words form the foundation for how the furniture should start to look. A minor deviation in the direction that these words go pave the way for any particular set of furniture to appear completely unrelated.
Each new year brings new trends. At Tropitone, we don’t make the trendiest furniture for today and gone tomorrow. We manufacture quality furniture with style that will stand the test of time. Our designs always have you and your investment in mind. That being said, our latest designs have built upon the building blocks of years of experience and excellent products. Based on the popularity of woven furniture and the flexibility modular seating offers, we have created collections that represent the current trends, but are designed to be timeless. Our newest collections have molded the building blocks together and developed one concept to utilize: mixed materials.
Despite record-breaking heat throughout the country, we notice a cooler breeze and shorter days.

As durable as Tropitone products are, they require simple maintenance to keep their allure for many years to come.
