he coast is more than just a location—it’s a way of life. Even though everyone eventually grows up, you might be the kind of person that still longs for that relaxed, nostalgic feeling of the beach. If this sounds familiar, you’ll be glad to learn that Coastal Living magazine and Stanley Furniture have come together to create a home collection inspired by their favorite beach cottages. Casual, fresh, and offering a multitude of different seaside colors, Coastal Living™ by Stanley Furniture allows coastal dwellers and dreamers to create a look that’s distinctly their own. Weathered driftwood, burnished boat fittings, louvered shutters, coral and sea grass serve as inspiration for the collection. Clean lines combined with heavy distressing and muted, grain-baring finishes and paint colors add to the collection’s natural contemporary look. Whether it’s painted in one of six nature-inspired colors, stained in light or dark tones, or finished in Weathered Pier or sandy linen, Coastal Living is all about the wood. Richly grained white oak veneers and hardwood solids show through, lending a casual, authentically natural feel. Heavy physical distressing completes its well-worn, laid-back look. Designed to work well in open floor plans of all sizes, Coastal Living marries old and new, blending the gently weathered style of coastal antiques with the functionality of high-tech modern furniture, integrating features like hidden power strips as well as sliding panels and cutouts for personal and home electronics. And since storage is always top of mind, Coastal Living features innovative storage solutions.
