Instant Beach House from Darby Road

My friend Ann told me about Darby Road Home Furnishings which features handcrafted new & vintage furnishings, as well as custom upholstery and accessories. The store is in Waltham, just a block down the road from Wolfers Lighting on Route 117.

It’s one of those places where you want to browse … there are nooks and crannies full of wonderful furniture and unique accessories. I don’t know of an eclectic mix like this in the Boston area. It’s a little like Mohr McPherson but Darby Road is more European/ American style though there are a lot of nice Asian items there that I coveted.

It’s that time of year to dream of a beach house. In my case, it’s a fantasy Pinterest board, but for others, this is the mad scramble time to get vacation homes ready for the summer.

I thought it would be fun to take this fantasy beach room from Sea Cottage and see how Darby Road could recreate it with items in stock and ready to go. In fact, since they have such a large inventory, you can get great beach style in seven days, door to door! (Of course, this assumes your beach house is in Maine, Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket, the Cape, Narragansett or generally around the Eastern Seaboard.)

So we took this beach living room, and voila!, we recreated this look. Here’s a sampling of some fun beachy looks I found.

Darby Road has a carefully curated selection of fabrics for custom upholstery. You can buy this linen covered armchair off the floor for $850 if you need Instant Beach House.

      Hi Ann,
      I didn’t realize you lived in Waltham! We were almost neighbors. So many coincidences lately with you! 🙂 When my beach house becomes a reality, I want to get some of those items. It was fun to browse Darby Road; they have such unique and wonderful items!

    After a decade off with the kids, I am really excited to be doing some marketing for Darby Road. We just got a new line of natural fiber rugs that would be a great addition to any summer home.
