Chinoiserie furnishings—most notably fanciful floral upholstery, pillows, and wallpaper—are staples of Palm Beach style. Try grouping floral armchairs with pieces that have Asian-style elements, such as garden stools and chairs with trellis cutouts. Mix in accents with some sparkle—bamboo mirrors, glossy table lamps, elegant sconces—for a look that’s both relaxed and glamorous.
Whether it’s a console shellacked in bold turquoise, a bright red lamp, or a pair of Chippendale-style chairs in cheery yellow, colorful lacquered furnishings are a mainstay of Palm Beach style. Since lacquered designs are glamorous by default, offset the pieces with solid upholstery and a natural-fiber rug, which will make the room appear chic yet still warm and inviting.
Rattan, bamboo, or cane furnishings are sure to give your home a bit of Palm Beach flair. Perfect in a backyard or a living room, rattan chairs and tables are versatile and sculptural, and they provide natural texture to a space. Accent woven seating with neutral cushions and lumbar pillows for a resort-style look and feel, as in this relaxing patio spot.
Create a space that nods to Palm Beach’s coastal locale, like this breezy bedroom. Beach-inspired touches, such as the framed coral art, the fabric adorned with palm fronds, and the ocean-blue palette, evoke an island getaway. And we love the mix of refined pieces, like the chinoiserie bed and the mirrored side table, which provide the relaxed yet glamorous vibe that’s a signature of Palm Beach living.
