Sketchbook – Coastal Comfort
Courtney Mueller -- Casual Living, August 31, 2006
The beach provides a different kind of vacation – the sun, surf and sand beckon us to be free, have fun and enjoy the warmer months. Furniture and accessories in this category evoke the tropics and allow consumers to have the least amount of stress worrying about the care of casual furniture.
Sling and strap groups are highlighted, while accent and complementary products such as umbrellas and fans keep it cool. For more sketchbooks, see Casual Living’s September issue.
