Designing Outdoor Furniture with a Distinctive Australian Style

Our traditional architecture has its own resourceful spirit and responsiveness to a varied Australian climate. Our cities formed as extensions of our past, with grand gothic churches on the corners of prominent city blocks and botanic parks strewn in-between. Our homes run as a concentrated band around the perimeter, dividing the land from the sea. Our lifestyles are very much a celebration of this vibrant intersection.

"Drawing Inspiration From The Rewards & Challenges Of Life By The Sea" Our Conversation with Nicola Webster of COAST New Zealand

The idea of COAST came about many, many years ago when Alex (my husband and business partner) was on a sailing race from Jamaica to The Cayman Islands. Everyone on board the yacht wanted to sit on a funny old corduroy beanbag wrapped in a waterproof sail bag, as it was so comfortable and easy to move about. We thought it would be a great product idea, if you could make a beautifully designed and weatherproof beanbag.
