Coastal Living

Don’t you ever wish that summer holidays could go on forever? Giving your home the coastal look will make you feel as though your wish has come true.
Design Inspiration

Think of sitting outdoors with a salt breeze cooling the air; of pebbles and seashells and maritime bliss. Choose beach furniture that also works indoors and opt for coastal colours to create the perfect atmosphere.

Geneva table and 4 chairs

A stylish dining set with coffee-coloured trim, this product is redolent of breakfasting in seaside hotels before spending the day on the beach. Glossy white paint and solid oak give it a contemporary look, while Italian polyester helps make it childproof. Striking design features, clean lines and the simplicity associated with coastal living are brought together in this table and chairs set.

Ambriella low bookcase

Pleasingly traditional, this bookcase wouldn’t look out of place in a holiday cottage. It is available in two versions - all white or with a solid oak top. This is an appealing piece of coastal furniture, the ideal place to keep the novels you like to read whilst sitting out on the seafront. Why not put a few seashells on the top to complete the look?

Ercol Gina easy chair

With a fashionable matte effect in neutral tones, this easy chair conjures up images of sandy beaches and a blue-grey sea stretching out to the horizon. Its tall back means you can lounge in it as if you were in an unusually comfortable deckchair. Firm padding ensures it provides ample support and a natural wooden frame adds to its charm.

Ercol Bergere 2 seater sofa with cane sides

There’s an old world charm to this handsome sofa with its neutral, sandy colours and leafy pattern. Its sturdy ash frame and woven cane sides make it a classic piece of coastal living furniture, ideal for the conservatory or a room with a garden view. Curl up with your loved one and enjoy a glass of wine whilst you browse through holiday pictures from summers gone by.

To complete the coastal look, why not hunt down some old pictures of fishing boats or sea views? Add in a ship in a bottle and other traditional nautical ornaments and you will feel as though you are by the seaside every day of the year
