Australian Beachy Outdoor Cushions Help Aussies Bring the Beach Home with Them
QUEENSLAND, Australia April 2014 – Australians and their love affair with the beach is as ingrained as the backyard barbeque. Most Aussies don’t need to try too hard to imagine the warmth of a sea breeze, the feel of sand underfoot and the soothing sounds of the ocean. It’s calming and a comfort; the peacefulness a relief to the noise of daily life.
Spending a day by the ocean is an activity Australians never want to see end, and living every day on the coast is a dream for many Australians. Now the dream for a never-ending seaside afternoon doesn’t need to remain a fantasy. “If leaving the beach is a challenge at the end of the day, why not take the beach back into the home?” was the question that changed one Aussie couple’s life and the homes of many others.
Nicki Richards and Alex Wickings’ mission in life is to reconnect homes with the beachy side of life. With a tender passion for all things oceanic, the Australian couple believe a home should be an extension of who the occupants are, and have enjoyed showering their own home with small pieces of their sandy and salty selves, including many Australian beachy outdoor cushions. So naturally, the pair created an online store – Beach Abode Living – to share their passion for the beach with everyone from country to coast.
“We wanted to voice the concept that you don’t have to live at the beach to enjoy the feeling of a beach style home,” says Beach Abode Living co-owner, Nicki Richards. “Creating an outdoor space with beachy water resistant cushions just gives your home that relaxed, natural, fun feeling of being on holidays every day.” www.beachabodeliving.com.au
“The beach style UV proof cushions in particular have captured the hearts of many Aussie clients who love cushions,” says co-owner Alex Wickings. “Households in Australia are full of cushions – in lounge rooms, patios, outdoor rooms, and backyards – and our clients love the chance to create a holiday-inspired feel in their homes using these small, inexpensive pieces to really create a fresh feel in the space.” www.beachabodeliving.com.au
As the leading industry expert on beachy outdoor cushions, Beach Abode Living produces and sells top quality fabric and designs online. The creations are designer made so the customer can match at least 4 and up to 6 cushions perfectly together. The collection was created particularly with the customer in mind taking the guess work out if it for them.
They are specifically made for the outdoors with a modern and striking touch, including on trend favourites such as the chevron zigzag, fish scales, and nautical stripes. The cushions are digitally printed for brighter, more vibrant and more durable colours. They are anti-fade and resistant to water, mildew, and stain, and all have beautifully designed covers that are UV proof and anti-toxic.
A joyful buyer says, “Hi Guys, I just wanted to let you know I received my outdoor cushion covers today (in record time) and wanted to say thanks so much for all your help with my colour selection. The cushions look fab out by my pool, and they were much softer than I expected. I particularly loooove the chevrons and fishscales together, the colours are so bright and cheery I’m really happy. I will let all my friends know where they can get some too.” www.beachabodeliving.com.au/testimonials
Nicki shares some important tips on selecting water resistant and UV proof outdoor cushions whether as a gift, or as backyard decorations for their own home:
• Choose 100% polyester-made fabric because natural fibres, like cotton, are not durable and tend to absorb moisture, dirt and odours that will deteriorate if left outdoors.
• Make sure the polyester fabric used is soft to the touch and very comfortable to lean against, but is tough and durable, and can withstand full sun or rain.
• Check that 100% clean polyester filling inserts are used as they are allergy-free, odourless, and fully washable.
• Choose heavy duty plastic zippers over metal to prevent rust.
Beach Abode Living is not a brand, it’s a lifestyle choice. The company wants to inspire buyers and their families to reconnect with nature and experience a fresh, relaxing, modern, and sophisticated coastal lifestyle, whether they live on t
the coast or in the country.
