Our Favorite Beach House Furniture

Whether your summer home rests on the coasts of Nantucket, on a tropical shore, or in Southern California, most beach houses take advantage of cozy, casual nautical style.  A stylish beach house welcomes visitors to relax and live life on island time, even if you aren’t on an island!  Our favorite source for quality, stylish beach house furniture is Williams Sonoma.  Today we are sharing three of our favorite Williams Sonoma collections that are perfect for your beach house.  Click on the images below to shop the look.

Bring the cobalt blue of the ocean into your beach home with gorgeous furniture and accents in shades of blue.  Anchor the room with a hand-knotted rug designed to mimic those from the 19th century.  Choose a neutral sofa in sturdy navy canvas to ensure that your furniture will stand up to many summers’ worth of relaxing.  Finally, add elegant nautical elements like linen pillows hand-embroidered with cranes, solid brass Monkey’s Fist paperweights, and abstract coastal paintings.

Summer of Style

In a beach home, the outdoor furniture is nearly as important as the indoor furniture.  Ensure that your time spent outdoors is just as stylish and comfortable as possible.  Teak furniture is both beautiful and hardy, making it the perfect choice for outdoor furniture.  We love an elegant ikat pattern for the indoor/outdoor rug.  Finally, make the navy color pop with throw pillows in complementary melon shades.

Beach Chic


Natural materials and light, bright colors anchored by contemporary, streamlined shapes create a space that is bright, breezy, and bold.

Let the natural textures of the beach speak for themselves with more neutral decor.  Woven seagrass adds warmth and texture to a streamlined bedframe, while a chandelier created from hand-bent reeds hangs above.  Try natural textures with neutral graphics elements, such as a wide striped rug and hanging prints of sea life.

Island Style


Natural fibers and dark finishes balance, crisp, clean white, creating a relaxed refuge for long, lazy summer days.

Let your love for the island life run free with a colorful collection of furniture and home accents.  Bold prints featuring palm fronds as well as ikat and Greek key designs adorn bedding throw pillows, wall art and more.  This is not an understated style, but rather an exuberant celebration of vibrant island life.

Whichever of these styles you choose, you are sure to add inviting warmth to your beach home.  Which of these styles are you most drawn to?
