Island furniture....
That takes you away!

I visited Sanibel Home Furnishings last week, it consists of three different stores all in a strip mall on Periwinkle Way. They offer tropical treats from very different accessories to comfortable island furniture. It was like a breath of fresh air to walk in and see all the bright tropical colors in soft yellows, blues and lime green. It's all about color. You can add a real pop to a room with an accent piece or accessory. Even change the bed spread or add some colorful toss pillows.They carry both.
There are the sofas and chairs in white trimmed with blue for a clean nautical look or the wicker with bright prints to add a splash of color to any room. You can custom design anything with a whole range of designer fabrics to choose from.
You will find some very different pieces here, like the magnificent chandelier all made of shells. It was a work of art at $1940.
Add a cozy wood table with wicker chairs for your eating area. I liked the water hyacinth furniture in sofas, chairs and dining chairs. It is like the sea grass furniture you have seen but higher end. What they had displayed were done up in bright tropical prints. Very refreshing!
There were wicker wing chairs with sea shell print cushions, and interesting tables mixed with colored chairs.
The choice of Company C rugs available in all sizes and many color combinations will anchor the room together.
I loved the great hurricane globes filled with shells and candles, or the pretty shell dishes. The wine glasses with fish or frogs wound around the stems were really a conversation piece.
There is a large assortment of lamps and pictures suitable for any room. A delightful collection of hand painted furniture.
They carry furniture by Stanley and Lexington but I loved all the bright colors. One sofa was a sunny yellow, another in lime green and one in a combination of small bright stripes.
Everything is nicely displayed making it easy to wander through all three stores. The drapery selection was so attractive and something different. They do custom made drapes, again with many fabrics and styles to choose from.
There is no delivery charge for furniture going into Ft. Myers. That's pretty much unheard of in this day and age!
If you need a small accessory to brighten up a room or a whole house full to furnish your new condo or home you will find it here. A fun place to shop for sure. Island furniture for your home in paradise!
It was fun spending the day on Sanibel, checking out all the interesting shops, having a great lunch and having a great laid back day on the island. I really enjoyed all the interesting things i found in this wonderful furnishings store.
Sanibel Home Furnishings is located at 1618 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel Island.
