Tiger Museum

Tiger Museum
Story:

Welcome to the jungle…an exotic place filled with natural treasures. This family’s jungle is as exotic and treasure-filled but, rather than wild animals, tiger maple furnishings fill their jungle. The collection grew and the jungle needed space to handle the earthly treasures to create a place for everything and everything with a place. The Tiger Museum evolved.
