Whoever said that “there’s nothing new under the sun” didn’t ask us. We’re pretty excited about our one-of-a-kind collaboration with Ethan Allen to create upscale furniture packages that embody the laid-back Margaritaville lifestyle. Now, vacation cottage owners can choose from four themed resort collections to furnish their new home, each designed to capture a unique vacation style.
Nearly a year ago, when thinking about the vision for the vacation cottages we decided that Ethan Allen was a company that shared our commitment to quality, so we reached out with a proposal to work together. Thomas McHugh, Ethan Allen’s Senior Director of International/Special Projects, recalls, “The opportunity to work with the Margaritaville team was really exciting: it was nice to spread our wings and try something new, and the synergy between all of us was just amazing right off the bat; it was almost like destiny.”
That synergy continued throughout the design process and paid off as the Ethan Allen team pulled inspiration from fashion, Mother Nature, and trends within the design world to develop four exclusive themes that seamlessly blend the spirit of Margaritaville with Ethan Allen’s signature craftsmanship. Each collection offers pieces for the bedroom, kitchen, dining room, and living room, as well as accessories (such as throw pillows and area rugs) so that every look is complete.
The results of our partnership are nothing short of stunning and it has been gratifying to hear the responses to the themes in our showroom. “When we came to Orlando for the official groundbreaking we were thrilled to experience people’s responses to having Ethan Allen furniture in their vacation homes. To hear them say, “This is nicer than the furniture in our own house!” made us even more excited about the partnership.” McHugh adds, “I can’t wait to hear what these vacation homeowners say when they finally walk in and see it all together.”
Until you open the door to your own Margaritaville Resort Orlando Vacation Cottage, here’s a sneak peek of our four collections:
Can you carry a perfect beach day home with you? We say yes. Surrounded by cozy chenille, laid back linens, and weathered wood textures, our Beach House furnishings keep the magic going even after the sun goes down. And since Mother Nature is the world’s greatest colorist, we borrowed her palette of turquoise, seafoam, and ivory, with touches of sand and mineral green. Whether your family vibe is more Corpus Christi or Cape Cod, you’ll find yourself transported to a getaway where it’s always summertime and the living is easy.
When we dream of Paradise, we dream in color: sunny yellow, vibrant turquoise, and apple green. Reflecting the warm welcomes and bright sunlit beauty of the Gulf Coast, saturated colors pop against natural wood and whitewashed finishes. You’ll want to linger as you fall under the spell of a cottage that summons the funky vibe of the Florida Keys, where eclectic accessories and laid-back luxury not only co-exist but harmonize. We think it’s the perfect recipe for relaxation.
License to Chill
No dune buggy is required for this surf’s up adventure. Beachcomber cool and a California flavor infuse this look from its organic textures to its driftwood accents. Sun-washed shores inspired the sand and taupe color palette, with yellow, coral, and teal accents calling to mind sunset on the water. Subtly retro and indisputably stylish, the whimsical accessories and surfer flourishes create the perfect place to hang loose ‘till you catch the next wave.
Son of a Sailor
Sometimes, you’d swear you were born for the sea. And this look keeps you close to your nautical roots with a modern take on the classic styles of yesteryear. Rich indigos and marine blues from the ocean meet a palette of warm sand and soft ivory. The most discerning captain would approve of the generously-scaled furnishings designed for your comfort. And our evocative embrace of tailored linen, sailcloth, and burlap will help you chart a course for years of relaxation ahead.
Best of all? No matter which theme speaks to you best, our team will perfectly execute the entire look before you arrive. Your home will be truly move-in ready: Just turn the key and open the door to a home you truly won’t find anywhere else.
