Hi soulfly....Sorry I missed your question! The chairs are antique balinese (indonesian) chairs that I purchased in Vancouver, British Columbia. They are made of teak and are weather friendly....a bit of teak oil to keep them looking good every year. They were made around the 1930's and if you look for an antique dealer you might find something similar. They were around $650 per chair. I hope this helps with your search! Google dutch colonial indonesian for more info and pictures of similar ones. I hope this helps!

If you can't bring the Red banana inside before a sunny window, consider cutting off the leaves and wrapping in burlap sacking so that it can still breath and place container in garage or basement. A lot of people have been successful with this method and now have 6-8' red banana plants.

The chairs are antique balinese chairs and I purchased them in Vancouver at a shop that has sadly gone out of business. You might be able to find another shop that specializes in antique indonesian furniture and share this photo with them...maybe they have a source for you. I hope this helps!

Kayu Sugih Teak
Hi everyone,

We are from Indonesia, with office in Bali and teak wood manufacturing facility in Jepara.
We do know the design of the chairs, yes, it is antique. The base design is originated from Java, and this model on the photo is mixed with Balinese culture's design. They are beautiful antiques.

However, should you and everyone else wish to source these kinds of antiques, please do let us know. Or, we welcome everyone to use our facility in re-production this particular item and basically any items that you wish.

Hope we are helping everyone by this information.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: Tropical Garden Style
If your tropical garden might need to be protected in winter, consider confining it to a patio and pots. Enjoy it through the summer months, then bring it indoors.Design tip: Add outdoor lighting to complete the mood, whether it's candles, a fire pit or subtly placed spotlights and downlights. One of the joys of the tropics is enjoying the evening under the stars, and you want to be able to do the same in your own space.
Annie Thornton added this to Ditch Shade Garden Gloom the Tropical Way
Use small spaces. Oftentimes it's the smallest garden spaces that are the most poorly lit, whether adjacent walls, trees or tall buildings are at fault. The upsides to cramped areas like the courtyard shown here are that they're easily tended to and often have their own protected microclimate, making them ideal for growing tropicals.When using tropical plants in small areas, a little goes a long way. Don't add too many plants right away, since many will quickly outgrow their space and require trimming or division to keep them from making the garden seem even more snug. Start with a solid backbone of hardy evergreen shrubs and ground covers and an inviting paved area so that visitors (and yourself) can enjoy the garden. Then bring out the big guns.
