Oceanic Arts is a sizable warehouse packed with everything you need to build a tropical paradise in Los Angeles. Tiki fiends will find thatch and bamboo to dress up patios. You'll need a truck or van to haul some of these pieces, like massive tiki and hula statues, but they'll look great poolside, so it's worth the effort. Looking to “Pacific-ify” your living room bar? There are smaller, carved wood statues, paddles and masks available for retrophiles. And gifts are ubiquitous, including themed jewelry and mugs. Oceanic Arts has been around since the original U.S. tiki craze back in the day, when it was involved in adding exotica flare to venues such as the Las Vegas Tropicana and Disney World's Polynesian Village Resort Hotel. Today, it can provide all the goods for you to turn your home into a swinging, Singapore Sling–ing party pad.
