West Indies Beauty tropical-kitchen

West Indies Beauty

Columbus’s quest to discover a western trade route to the exotic spice ports in the East Indies, led to the discovery of tropical islands in the Caribbean that became known as the West Indies. Despite the variety of architectural and design influences from Europe, there are several indigenous design elements that are iconic to these islands.

Woven cane and rattan furnishings were airy and light in this humid, tropical environment. Gauzy fabrics, sun-baked colors, and louvered shutters were hallmarks. Heavy woods, like Mahogany, held up well in the tropics, and rich dark finishes were common. Islanders used tropical motifs in their furniture carvings – palm fronds, pineapples, and other island flora.

This is a molding treatment that combines 4 different Dura Supreme molding treatments to create the look you see here. An intricate carved molding accents the molding stack. Any Dura Supreme Cabinetry designer can recreate this for their customers and can contact us if they need instructions. I’ve uploaded a close up of the molding so you can see the details better.

The tile was purchased at Kate-Lo Tile and Stone here in Minnesota. Kate-Lo Tile and Stone is a division of Olympia Tile which has other affiliates in the U.S. In Florida their affiliate is Alpha Tile and Stone with four (4) locations; Tampa, Fort Myers, Sarasota, and Orlando. I hope that this will help you find the tile.

What is the would used for the wine rack - I love it! Thanks! - It almost looks like bamboo but larger canes? Thanks!
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Dura Supreme Cabinetry
Thank you! The wood on the wine rack, the kitchen island, and the island turn posts is Lyptus. Lyptus is a really interesting wood species and is similar to Mahogany with its rich, red coloring but has more variation. It’s a great choice if you prefer eco-friendly and sustainable wood species. Lyptus is a hybrid of the Eucalyptus plant. A notable environmental advantage is that trees grow to full maturity in 15 years (compared to 50+ years for most domestic hardwoods). Lyptus is also used on the rest of the kitchen cabinetry of this photo, but in a different finish than the kitchen island.

The bamboo turn post is carved to look similar to a bamboo cane like you said, but in this case is in Lyptus.

Please let me know if you have any other questions about the wood species or this kitchen. Have a great day!
