Nothing feels as luxurious as a day spent on a tropical island. The relaxed atmosphere and indulgent nature of the tropics just calls to us, and it seems like our favorite brands have also heard the siren song. As new collections start to roll out for the spring season, we're noticing a pattern around whimsical, island-inspired pieces—and we can't get enough!

Serena and Lily, for example, is really playing with tropical colors and patterns in their recently launched spring collection. From palm tree wallpaper to pillows with coral motifs, the brand is certainly leaning into this trend. Additionally, Aerin just launched a collection of natural woven accessories that is sweltering with tropical flair.

It's also worth noting that this trend isn't just present with current collections from some of our favorite brands; our editors have also noticed tropical-inspired pieces gaining traction at design markets for some time. Over the past few months, we've seen an increase in the use of natural materials, as well as more refined indoor/outdoor furniture, fans and lighting. We love that this trend encourages the design world to embrace bold color, beautiful texture, and artisan-made items.

Discover the magic of lush palms, rattan, birds and more in some of our favorite pieces that are giving us a bit of tropical inspiration.
