You may remember David and Amy - theirs was the AT:Chicago house tour featuring super 20th century pieces (they own Pegboard Modern) and a full-tilt Tiki Room. The festival they organize (picture Hawaiian shirts and tropical cocktails) called Exotica 2007 hits the sunny but not-so-beach-y location of Chicagoland next week.
And if all the exotic fabulousness and surf music causes you to want to tiki-fy your home a little bit, David Van Alpen's DvA Gallery has it's annual Gala Tiki exhibition up now in the Lincoln Ave. storefront.
More tiki goods are available through the DVA online store, including the aformentioned David (Duke) Carter's book...it's a small world, after all...
