Contemporary Coastal Sofas

Let’s start with the biggest piece in the room. You’ve got to have a comfortable sofa! Thankfully that doesn’t mean it can’t be stylish as well. I love the clean lines of the Keegan and Reed sofas and the Tux sofa is so gorgeous! The Nantucket style is a classic and would be the perfect spot to curl up and read a good book.

Accent Chairs

These accent chairs are seriously cool! The woven rattan chair with its sexy shape definitely makes a statement. I love the modern lines and natural wood and the design of each of these chairs make them so interesting. Pieces that are casual yet have an elegant feel are always a winner in my book. Here are my top picks for accent chair options in the modern coastal style:

Coffee Tables

For your coffee table, choose something out of the ordinary! Adding texture gives a coastal feel without overdoing it on the beach theme. A table with an unusual shape or material will create an interesting spot for your friends to gather around.

Rugs

Anchor your space with a rug. Sometimes the rug will be your focal point. In this case, these coastal inspired rugs provide a subtle background for your furnishings and will help soften the look and feel of a room. Remember to always choose the largest rug that will work in your space.

Pillows

Pillows are my favorite way to change the look of a room with minimal effort and cost. They add so much life and personality! I love the different patterns and colors. Shop these great options:

Lighting

You can never have too many lamps! Mix it up with different heights and styles to keep things interesting. I love the textures and colors of these options.

Shop the Entire Look!

The coastal style has evolved over the years- you can achieve the relaxed feel of your perfect vacation spot without going in the direction of seashells, mermaids, and palm trees 🙂 Contemporary coastal design is one of my favorite styles- it combines the coziness of farmhouse, the clean lines of modern, and beautiful options for your color palette. You can go with the calm cool colors of the sea or choose bolder accents to make a statement. All in all it’s a unique look that I can’t get enough of!
