Furniture World News on

Stanley Furniture announced that it has teamed up with Coastal Living to bring its line of seaside-inspired furniture into the Coastal Living Ultimate Beach House 2011. Located in the picturesque town of East Beach, a traditional Atlantic Coastal waterfront community in Norfolk, Virginia, the 3,110-square-foot house will showcase the best of coastal design with Stanley’s Coastal Living Collection, along with selections from the company’s Modern Craftsman, Continuum and The Classic Portfolio collections. The 2011 Ultimate Beach House is expected to draw 30,000 visitors and will open to the public for tours beginning July 28, 2011.
Designed for a simple, casual lifestyle, the house will feature traditional classic design reflective of Tidewater Virginia homes and is the perfect setting for Stanley’s Coastal Living Collection.
Phoebe Howard, the interior designer for the beach house, has selected signature Coastal Living Resort pieces, which blend a transitional cottage look with modern lines to create a casual, sophisticated vibe.
In the dining room, the Esplanade Buffet transitions from formal to more casual settings with distressed finishes and nautical design details. While the Tranquility Isle chest in the upstairs bedroom could work in any room of the house with its unique look. The chest boasts nine drawers with tarnished steel pulls inspired by ship cleats.
"The 2011 Coastal Living Ultimate Beach House sets new standards for updated beach home design, while celebrating life along the coast," said Neil MacKenzie, Director of Marketing for Stanley Furniture. "Our Coastal Living Resort Collection seamlessly intertwines the simplicity of seaside living with the meticulously crafted design and sophistication of East Beach homes."
Stanley’s Coastal Living Resort infuses the understated elegance of America’s top resort interiors with casual design elements to create contemporary sophistication. White oak veneers and hardwood solids feature heavy distressing and muted grain-baring finishes that emulate nature’s effect on wood. Natural elements such as weathered driftwood, coral and sea grass are echoed throughout the pieces, inviting a sense of downtime and relaxation. Meanwhile, the presence of a modified modern style is evident in the clean lines, floating tops and black wood stain.
Enhancing the subtle beauty of the collection is the expansive pallet of colors. The nature-inspired paints, one light- and one dark-toned stain in two unique finishes, illuminate the collection’s natural contemporary look. Coastal Living Resort’s eclectic blend of seaworthy textures and modern shapes make it easy to mix and match in a single room.

For those unable to make the tour, the house will be featured in the October issue of Coastal Living. Other sponsors include Sunbrella, BOSCH Appliances, Pratt and Lambert Paints and Marvin Window and Doors.
