Kenian Home- Favorite Furniture on Friday!

In the summers, I transition to my beach house at Topsail Beach on the North Carolina Coast.  I grew up coming to this beach with my family from age six when my grandfather built a big family house.  Visits to the summer house meant several family sharing the beach house which meant many cousins to play with from dawn til dusk.  I have such fond memories of those summers shared with family.  When we had our children, I wanted them to experience the same lovely summers I had spent on the coast with family.  We have had a house here for 17 years now.  My children think of this beach as their second home.  It is important for me to spend time here with them.  We know our neighbors and have family all around us.  As a result, I work here just as I do when in Charlotte.  I love my work here because I get to use different products and colors than I use in Charlotte projects.  I enjoy creating relaxing retreats for families.  One of the companies I always look to for great rattan and bamboo furniture is Kenian Home.  Kenian Home is based out of Virginia Beach, Va but ship their products from Lexington, NC so it is very convenient to North Carolina Coastal properties.  The owner, Clell Smith, is such a nice guy.  When I visit him at market he always offers everyone who visits an espresso.  

"Kenian’s mission continues to be to provide uniquely styled, trend forward quality merchandise at a great value. "  They strive to provide exceptional customer service that will exceed your expectations, to listen to the needs of their customers and to give back to their community."

Kenian Home was chosen as a "Beach House" Must have by Costal Living Magazine in their May 2015 issue, but this company offers furniture for many other applications, not just beach houses.  If you are furnishing a lake house, children's room, office, sunroom, rooms with a coastal vibe both contemporary or traditional, Kenian Home has many options.  
Their timeless designs can mix and match into any home décor!

The Urbane Collection is quite handsome.  The woven leather chairs are great used with the Kenian Home rattan based table with glass top or great an accent chairs in a hallway or bedroom.

Clell travels the Asian world markets to bring top quality products from master artisans made from exotic materials such as bamboo and natural fibers with rich finishes.
 Doesn't every home deserve a touch of inspired island living?

Whether you are living in the islands or want to add the essence of island living to your decor, Kenian Home offers great furniture to mix with your other furnishings to create a cool, casual style to your home.

Kenian Home's Custom Color Chippendale Collection is another favorite of mine!  The Chippendale Collection offers custom colors so you can choose something unique for your special project.
