YOU CAN’T GO WRONG WITH THE CLAS­SICS

Coastal Living - - HAVENS -

“My mother’s mod­ern trop­i­cal aes­thetic in­cluded all crisp white cot­ton slip­cov­ered uphol­stery, China Seas batiks, Ward Ben­nett rat­tan-and-chrome Sled chairs, and the first Bel­gian wall-to-wall coir [co­conut husk] car­pet­ing that any­one had ever seen. As chil­dren we were shocked by its scratch­i­ness, but even then I knew it was chic.”

AHEAD OF THE CURVE Lin­droth found this semi­cir­cu­lar rat­tan sofa on eBay, and cov­ered the cush­ions in white cot­ton slip­cov­ers. The hand-painted checker­board floors make the newer home feel like its older Har­bour Is­land neigh­bors.

FINE PRINTThe en­try­way of this Ba­hamian home was de­signed in the spirit of the iconic Ly­ford Cay Club. The walls are cov­ered in a China Seas Ly­ford Pagoda print on grass­cloth.
