One glimpse of the pieces in the Somerset Bay collection and the light breeze coming through your window suddenly becomes laced with a hint of salt, you can almost feel the sand beneath your feet, and is that the distant sound of a seagull you hear? Never has furniture transported you like this. And while your senses are still indulging, your mind can rest assured knowing that the craftsmanship of Somerset Bay has raised the bar. With its relaxed style and unique lines the collection does not shy away from color, but rather features a 6 step patina finish that is just one of the many example of the quality Somerset bay exudes. Never has your home seemed more like a getaway destination before.
