Life-styled at The Beach

What is your home style? Rustic? French Provincial? Industrial? Still a work in progress? No matter what your style, or the advice you need, at The Beach you’ll find it and more.

The recently opened showroom on Constellation Drive, Mairangi Bay is the largest of the three urban and beach lifestyle inspired furniture stores for Luana Downing and James Christie. Their Wairau Park and Newmarket stores still showcase their quality sourced and imported designs – but this new showroom is bigger and better and carries an even larger range.

“We found the ideal spot here at Mairangi Bay; it’s our biggest showroom but also our warehouse, so we can offer even more to our valued North Shore customers!” exclaims Luana.

The showroom is still a work in progress with their new spring/summer range flooding in - they have an abundance of surprises for customers, still to unpack! - but what you can buy now is reminiscent of their urban, modern and eclectic styles that are gracing the covers of our favourite magazines, pinterest and instagram boards.

Large, oversized, duck-down cushioned couches take centre stage in the enormous all white showroom along with the new retro-inspired sideboards and coffee tables.  Industrial style bookshelves adorned with colourful and quirky cushions, vases and trinkets are set amongst the Eames-inspired dining chairs that sit propped against white-washed and recycled wooden dining tables, decorated with imported linen table runners.

Some customers may be perplexed at a room filled with all these different styles – but what Luana and James invest in, all seems to seamlessly fit together.

“There are really no hard and fast rules when it comes to styling your home - gone are the days where everyone buys one style or colour, particularly in wood,” she says.  “Everyone is experimenting with ideas and aren’t afraid to mix their furniture – and we aim to cater for all these types of looks,” she adds.

While they have inside the home truly covered, they also cater for the outside. Currently the only North Shore agents of Artwood Outdoor Furniture, the highly durable and hard-wearing, elegant hand-weaved outdoor settings with teak tables, are extremely comfortable and will look incredible in any home.

The Beach is filled with an amazing array of quality, hand-crafted pieces that reflect the North Shore lifestyle.  Let Luana and James help make your house a home to enjoy.
