California Dreaming at Coco Republic: Your First Look Of 2020 Summer

Introducing the new Summer collection from Coco Republic

New Arrivals: Manhattan Modular Sofa, Gypsum Marble Coffee Table, Valentina Rug in Blush, Bora Side Table & Noah Floor Lamp.

It’s a California state of mind for Summer 2020/21 as Coco Republic embraces a modern Californian vibe with the newest collection of furniture and homewares.

Landing in store mid-October 2020, new designs embody west coast style with unique silhouettes, a play on mixed materials and forms that draw inspiration from the organic tones and textures of the California Coast. Coco Republic takes a new approach to interior style with a juxtaposition of refinement and rawness.

Summer sees Coco Republic’s largest ever seasonal release with over 300 new introductions next month. New sectional sofa and modular designs bring deep seated comfort to the forefront in a cool Californian aesthetic. Curved forms add statement style to the home this summer with new occasional chairs in boucle, leather and linen alongside coffee and side tables in beautifully unique profiles. Rounded shapes continue to dining tables and chairs designs, keeping entertaining front of mind. Sculptural cues inform new lighting designs whilst a line of large scale modern oil paintings have been introduced to the Coco Republic offering for the first time in several years. The Summer collection also sees new bar, desk chairs, rug, mirror, planter and decor options.

Contemporary edge balances timeless appeal with marble introductions, tan leathers and various tones in rich velvet. Brass accents seep through the collection, as does warm terracotta and organic whites in décor and charcoal feature pieces.

Designed and sourced by Coco Republic designer and co-owner Anthony Spon-Smith, the new arrivals enhance the indoor to outdoor lifestyle synonymous with the way we live and enjoy our homes in Australia and New Zealand.

Anthony Spon-Smith says of the new Summer collection, “This Summer we ran with a modern Californian vibe to take the season into a more progressive direction. I’ve taken inspiration from the beautiful state of California from recent, frequent trips there to introduce seasonal highlights with interesting shapes and forms, contrasted with textured fabrics, natural leathers and brass accents.”
