Furnishings and accessories in the new living room are comfortable and stylish, but also low maintenance. The custom sofas were designed and fabricated by Chapman and covered in washable tan denim slipcovers, while pleated drapes were hung with simple wooden curtain rods and rings that make them easy to change out and wash. “No carpet also means less to clean, especially in a beach house,” notes the designer. “You can just sweep up the sand.”
The matching sofas are custom by the designer. The coffee table is from Sarreid.
