Slipcovered Furniture

Comfortable slipcovered furniture is the perfect choice for carefree relaxed summer living that you, your family & your pets will love. 

There are many styles, sizes and configurations of Slipcovered furniture to choose from among our Collections. You can easily find the best solution for your gathering place without sacrificing your style or budget.  We offer lines that are classic, modern, apartment-sized, oversized and more. The best choice of fabric for the slipcovers for beach house slipcovered furniture is either 100% cotton or performance fabric. The choice is yours - both are great options. 100% cotton is easily washed and, as with clothing, the more it’s washed the softer it gets. The Performance fabrics, typically are stain resistant, fade resistant and will require less laundering as you can easily wipe spots clean because the fabric repels, limiting absorption. Today's performance fabrics are soft to the touch and climate friendly. Don't forget about the seat fill. Our collections have various fill that provide a lifetime of comfort.


Natural Materials

for all table types

The most popular material choices for coffee, console, side tables and dining tables for the beach house look are the ones made from materials found in nature. Many of our classic best sellers are pieces crafted from natural resources like Driftwood, reclaimed wood such as pine and alder, sustainable woods, pole rattan, bamboo and copper. 

Coffee tables like the Mykonos are styled architecturally with mahogany distressed with a white wash finish or if you want to showcase the wood, consider an authentic driftwood coffee table topped with glass. 

Any of these pair well with the Hampton Hall Table with it's unique finish to flank your sofa.

The Chesapeake Plank Dining table crafted from sustainably sourced hardwood, is perfect for family meal time. When you need an entry table or a unique sofa table, look no further than the Boat House favorite, the Reclaimed Pine trestle base console table. 


Coastal Lighting

& Lamps

When it comes to coastal lighting, you will find the perfect fixtures hand crafted from beautiful, natural materials like sea shells, rope, iron and even driftwood. The texture and character of these natural finds add a touch of interest and character that transform your space into a sea side retreat when hanging from your ceiling and walls. 

In addition to natural materials, we have fixed lighting with beads, sea glass and wood. We offer a variety of  coastal lamps made from materials like nickel, brass, ceramic, mother-of-pearl, vintage glass and more. The styles are endless  with glass and ceramics in various colors and unique patterns.


Area Rugs

Anchor the Furniture

Nothing is more beautifully neutral & versatile than a jute rug as its organic in nature, it adds texture and character to a room. We also offer indoor/outdoor polypropylene rugs and our most popular PVC rugs which are made from recycled plastics and loomed in Sweden. Polypropylene rugs are very economical, available in many colors, patterns and sizes. Our PVC rugs last a lifetime and are worth every penny. They too, come in many colors, sizes, patterns & styles. PVC rugs easy to clean and virtually indestructible making them the perfect choice for a family with kids & pets.


Finishing Touches

& Decor

The finishing touches are the key to making your space look and feel complete. Our most popular coastal accents are the key elements that will take the guess work and search out of the equation. Toss a few pillows on the sofa and drape a throw over the chair to add some depth and accent color. For the walls our Driftwood Wall Hangings, Seashell Mirror & Ocean Scene Triptychs are beautiful, unique and really make a statement. For accents add Sea Glass Floats, Boat Lanterns, Books about the Sea and of course a Hardwood Backgammon or Chess Board to keep the competition alive.
