Freshen up your soon-to-be-summer decor with a spritz of tangerine and a splash of teal – or any combination of your favorite spicy orange and refreshing blue-green. Picture a secluded and sun-baked citrus grove by the shimmering Mediterranean… To start up your thought process, we’ve pictured a few hues of orange above, from clementine to coral. Also – we admit that sometimes it’s hard to pick just one orange. All the fabric swatches above are from our Shoreline Cottage Style Fabrics collection, so browse for even more options.

The elegant backless sofa at center stage  – the Pepperrell Cove Upholstered Sofa – will instantly energize your beach house or cottage living room. With a salon-worthy silhouette and a name honoring a beautiful coastal Maine landmark, this piece has its own repertoire of fabric options available from our Summer House Upholstered Furniture collection.
