What good would your seaside retreat be if you didn’t have a fabulous outdoor space to relax or entertain in? I know I would spend all my time outside on the deck enjoying the ocean breeze and taking in the fresh sea air while listening to the waves. All of this would be done on my favorite outdoor furniture of course! This is why we have selected some of our favorites for beach side relaxing and entertaining.
First up we have Pottery Barn’s Chesapeake Collection, specifically the low platform sectional. This set is perfect for those who love to entertain and want lots of seating for everyone to enjoy. We love the look of the wood in this collection and since it is made from FSC-certified eucalyptus wood and finished with a long wearing polyurethane stain it will stand the test of time and hold up to all the outdoor weather for years to come. There are 3 frame options and an array of cushion colors available for you to choose from and make it your own. The frame options also mean this piece can be customized to meet the needs of any sized space. All upholstery is covered in water-repellent ring-spun polyester canvas or Sunbrella fabrics. With so many options there is no doubt that this sectional set will fit your seaside retreat perfectly.
Out next pick is Restoration Hardware’s Spartan Daybed. This is our pick for pure relaxation on the deck and with 2 finish options and 68 fabric options this daybed can also be customized to fit any décor. The lines of this piece will give a classy, modern and sculptural look to any deck it sits on. I know I would love to lay back, read a design magazine (of course), and listen to the waves every day and at night you can cuddle up with that special someone and enjoy a romantic evening. Which brings us to the next must have item.
Also from Restoration Hardware we selected the 19th C. Butter Churn Ventless Fire Table. It is the beach after all and nights are bound to get chilly. The planked sides and top of this table are made from unfinished reclaimed elm. The metal details are a powdercoated steel that will develop a wonderful patina over time. This will lend a worn in element to your deck to balance out the modern pieces and give the deck a more lived in relaxed feel. The best part is that when the weather turns warm again you can place the lid on top and this becomes another table!
The last selection is going to take you off your deck and down onto the beach. Lets be realistic, as much fun as the party will be on the deck, you cannot resist taking it down onto the sand. For days when the sun and sand are calling you, can lounge around in Crate and Barrels Vista Adirondack Chairs and ottomans. Perfect for lounging in the sun while the kids play or huddling around a rocky fire pit and roasting marshmallows at night. We are certain all these outdoor furniture picks will make sure you never want to go back inside.
