This New Zealand brand draws inspiration from the rewards and challenges of life by the sea: simple, relaxing and beautiful but rugged and unforgiving.
COAST New Zealand was established in 2003 with the aim of establishing a brand that would reflect New Zealand’s unique quality of life. Starting as a specialist supplier to super-yachts, the brand has since evolved dramatically. “We continue to borrow many of the materials and methods that were previously the reserve of luxury yacht building: contemporary ocean-going sailing yachts must be comfortable, even opulent, and withstand the harshest conditions at sea,” says COAST co-founder Nicola Webster.
Now well known for its luxury outdoor beanbags, canvas luggage and outdoor cushions, COAST New Zealand has added another product line to its range: Nimbus, a range of floating pieces that take their form from COAST’s award-winning bean bag collection.
Like all COAST pieces, the Nimbus range is designed for life. The fabric covers are made in New Zealand from Subrella fabrics and quilted with fast-drying reticulated foam. “Our innovative (patent pending) air-filled liners are made with heavy duty PVC and/or drop stitch fabrics more commonly found in stand-up paddleboards and feature seams that are welded, not glued, for strength and longevity,” Nicola says.
Here’s a look at the pieces that make up this striking new collection.
An air-filled take on the COAST outdoor beanbag, Nimbus Orbit is all about floating in dreamy comfort.
Nimbus Air Chair
Understated and invitingly comfortable, the Nimbus Air Chair is a luxury take on air-filled poolside seating that can be used in or by the water.
For use by or in the pool, this is a piece that’s all about comfort and style. Covered in Sunbrella fabric and available in a range of standard and custom colours, this lounger is synonymous with summer.
