Tropitone Rebrands With ‘Beautifully Crafted, Time Tested’ Message

September 25, 2018

ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 25, 2018--Tropitone, a designer and manufacturer of resort-style outdoor furniture, announces a comprehensive rebrand that emphasizes the “Beautifully Crafted, Time Tested” attributes of the company’s furniture. The rebranding launches today with a new visual identity, website and advertising.

“We developed a new strategic vision for the company that combines our commercial heritage and dedication to quality and modernizes the brand to speak directly to today’s commercial designers and residential homeowners,” said Gene Moriarty, chief executive officer for Tropitone’s parent company, Brown Jordan International. “The new branding is designed very well to speak to Tropitone’s strengths and provide a solid foundation for future growth of the product line and the business.”

Tropitone furniture and the new campaign are built on one simple truth: Quality design and long-lasting materials can come together to create escapes that last a lifetime. The new campaign uses the tagline “Beautifully Crafted, Time Tested” to evoke the aesthetics of craftsmanship and quality and communicate longevity and durability.

The updated Tropitone logo is a clean, simplistic and original wordmark. A new color palette of orange and teal reflects the tones of sky, water and sun — the essence of a day spent poolside. To speak to both contract designers and homeowners, a new print ad strategy uses a split-screen technique to showcase what the furniture looks like at a beautiful beach resort and what the same furniture looks like in a customer’s backyard.

Tropitone will also celebrate the rebrand with the launch of the new Samba collection today in its updated Merchandise Mart showroom at Casual Market Chicago. Inspired by modern midcentury design, Samba offers incredible energy, fueling good moods and great conversation. Designed for the residential market, it features several outdoor seating options and a dining collection. New for commercial spaces is the Mixx Woven modular collection available in multiple seating configurations, including sectionals and loungers. To see the new products, visit www.tropitone.com.
