Coastal style beds are a great way to transform a humdrum bedroom into something special. Whether you want a bed inspired by an exotic tropical getaway, a vacation to the coast, or a just a sunny day at the beach, you can bring that relaxing, worry-free Coastal atmosphere home with you. Coastal style beds encompass a wide range of subtypes, giving you many options within the group as a whole. Whether you want something more bold and striking, or something erring towards conservative and Traditional, you can find a bed that suits your personality while still embodying warm, relaxing, Coastal style.

Coastal style beds make use of materials like Rattan, Driftwood, Bamboo, and exotic woods like Mango. As you can imagine, Sand finishes are very common as they complement the material types and exemplify Coastal style. The warm Sand finished wood of Coastal style beds often uses slatted or panel designs for a casual look and feel that induces worry-free relaxation. A Coastal style bedroom can be a great way to let go of the stress of your day, and also an invigorating way to wake up in the morning. Coastal style beds work especially well in naturally-lit rooms with plenty of windows or a balcony.

Coastal TV Stands for the Home

Coastal TV Stands for the Home

Tommy Bahama Coastal TV Stand 1

This might sound pretty strange, but I love to watch TV on vacation. Maybe there are some deep down psychological reasons for that, or maybe I’m just boring, but something about laying in a freshly made hotel bed and exploring the unusual (and sometimes entirely foreign) TV channels is fun and relaxing. My wife usually scolds me for “wasting time watching TV when we could be doing something we can’t do at home,” but there are times when it’s too late or we’re too tired to do any of those things and I just get to channel flip and snack on hotel food; It’s awesome.

Although I doubt too many people are finding this quirk of mine relatable, I think most everyone can relate to loving the feeling of being on vacation. And for most, at least where I’m from, Coastal and Tropical styles are predominant for encapsulating the feel of an exotic, relaxing vacation. So why not bring that feeling home? Coastal furniture is a great way to get that vacation feel in a specific room or throughout your entire home. From exotic Rattan furniture to beach inspired finishes, there are many types of Coastal furniture, each with a specific inspiration or influence. And if you do share my love of watching TV on vacation, Coastal TV Stands for the home are perfect. Although you will probably be familiar with the channels that you flip through, and probably won’t find an entertaining new show in a language you don’t understand, Coastal TV Stands are still a good way to enhance your downtime by pretending you are relaxing in paradise away from all the troubles of everyday life.

Tommy Bahama, in particular, excels at Coastal inspired furniture including Coastal TV Stands. This brand has many types and styles of Coastal furniture available and is a great place to start if you are looking to bring that vacation feeling home.

Double Dressers

Double Dressers

Double dressers are the gold standard for bedroom storage. They provide an optimal balance of storage space and drawer count, with an aesthetically pleasing symmetrical design. Double dressers are the most prevalent because of the effective design, so there are many styles and colors available to fit your bedroom. Traditional-style double dressers are very easy to come by as this tried-and-true design has been around for generations, but the prevalence of double dressers assures you can find them in styles from Classic Traditional to Modern Contemporary and everywhere in-between.

Six drawer double dressers are the most common type, with a 3×2 design. A row of smaller drawers sometimes accompanies the primary drawers (usually as the top row), intended to organize smaller and more delicate items. Sometimes these rows include three or four smaller drawers, rather than a double row, but the primary design of the piece is still a double dresser. A well-designed double dresser provides ample storage space for the average person’s wardrobe (excluding closet items that need to be hung, of course), and larger models with a 4×2 design may even be enough to accommodate couples in a single unit. Double dressers often include optional mirrors to enhance their style and functionality in the bedroom, great for getting dressed in the morning.

Double dressers are generally intended for bedroom use, though the effective storage capabilities and aesthetics of many models make them viable in other living spaces, as well. But if you are looking for the ideal bedroom storage solution that provides ample space and a good drawer count in a compact unit, you can’t beat the design of a double dresser. And as one of the most popular furniture pieces manufactured, there are models out there that will perfectly fit the style and personality of your bedroom.

When something works, it just works. And double dressers are something that just works.

The Rattan Swivel Chair, Your New Favorite Seat

The Rattan Swivel Chair, Your New Favorite Seat

Rattan is popular not only for its attractive look and exotic nature, but also for its natural and organic give that makes it incredibly comfortable. Swivel chairs, the cousins of rocking chairs, add increased functionality and comfort with their movement conducive design. Combine these two features, and you get a product like the Euro Style Fenia Rattan Swivel Chair. This incredibly comfortable chair will likely become the new favorite seat in your home. The woven rattan material has the perfect amount of give, and is also quite aesthetic, while the swivel function improves the usability and comfort much like a rocking chair does. With the combination of style and comfort, rattan swivel chairs make great additions to virtually any living space. Whether you are looking for a new living room chair for guests or watching TV, a reading chair in the family room or study, a desk chair in your bedroom or home office, or the ultimate lounging chair in your man-cave or game room, rattan swivel chairs are hard to beat with their balance of comfort and aesthetic appeal.

Rattan works especially well in Tropical, Coastal, and more exotic styled rooms. The material is native to areas such as Africa, Asia, and Australia, radiating an atmosphere of warm, sunny beaches and relaxing vacation destinations. This makes curling up in your rattan swivel chair a very relaxing and positive experience, further enhanced by naturally lit areas near windows or a door-wall. If you are fortunate enough to have a screened-in porch or sunroom, adding a rattan swivel chair and a nice stack of books will have you all set for enjoying a relaxing summer. With spring having recently sprung, and summer right around the corner, now is a great time to add a rattan swivel chair to your home.

Coastal Bedroom Furniture Sets

Coastal Bedroom Furniture Sets

Coastal bedroom furniture sets are a great way to achieve the cozy, relaxing, luxurious, and sometimes exotic atmosphere of the coast that everyone loves. Whether you want a more tropical or maritime feel, the idea of the coast with its flowing tide and deep blue water induces an automatic feeling of calmness and relaxation. Coastal bedroom furniture sets provide an all-in-one collection of pieces that encapsulate Coastal style. White finishes, Driftwood, and Rattan are a few significant descriptors of Coastal style.

White finished Coastal-style furniture pairs well with blue carpet, paint, and accent pieces, being reminiscent of a white ship in the blue water. These types of Coastal bedroom furniture sets are usually complemented by maritime inspired decorations like anchors, sea shells, Coastal-inspired paintings, or even aquariums. Driftwood Coastal bedroom furniture sets offer a more authentic feel, radiating the cozy comfort and warmth of the beach beneath the summer sun. Sets featuring Rattan are aimed more towards an exotic, tropical atmosphere reminiscent of Coastal destinations like New Zealand. The exotic sense  of Rattan creates a lavish atmosphere that is also usually accompanied by a warmness and coziness common in such tropical environs. Whichever of these Coastal subsets is right for you, there are Coastal bedroom furniture sets that can achieve it in a convenient pre-selected set.

Favorite Friday! I was inspired by yet another beautiful photo of a room and had to create my own version with products from FurnitureCrate! Check out this cozy nook and how you can get your look right here!

I chose the Carrara Chair and Ottoman from Lexington for the clean lines and rich color. Like the photo, I stayed with a light wood console table, this one by Safavieh. The accents, Table Lamp by Currey & Company, Throw by Surya, and Pillow by Niche by Eastern Accents, have the light teal/blue color that I love!

Hanging artwork is one of my favorite parts of design. First, because it means you’re about to see the finished project. Second, artwork can completely make a room!

Artwork is up to personal interpretation; what is beautiful to you may not have an effect on someone else. And sometimes, people don’t have an opinion at all. But it’s important to find something you like, don’t give up!

Here are a few beautiful rooms that prove artwork can be essential to the design of your room.

Room Inspirations!

Every Morning when I get into the office, I check out my design-related blogs, articles, emails and whatever else that gets my creative juices going. That is, after I pour myself a gigantic cup of coffee!

I came across a room that sparked my interest and it inspired me to recreate it with our products on FurnitureCrate!

This photo has a lot of different components but somehow work very well together. First, you have the contemporary fabric on a traditional chair. The console table has a coastal, beach feel to it with very traditional lamps and mirror above it. To tie in the coastal theme, they’ve added a sisal rug.

Here’s what I came up with!
