Easy.com has some cool stuff, you just have to search. But the nice thing is since most items are handmade there are usually opportunities for customization.

If you already own leather and don't want to opt for buying new, slip covers in a linen or cotton will do the trick. Or if you are planning to make a leather furniture purchase, stick to white or light beige...just remember you will 'stick' to it in the hot summer heat. Leather could belong in accessories if a must (picture frames, book covers, etc.) I suggest skipping the leather furniture idea.

Check out Beach Cottage Design Pg 76! I wouldn't have thought it possible, but it looks very beachy.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

A Painted Cottage has used painted furniture, white, and beachy accessories to get the coastal look.
Becky Harris added this to Using Shells in Your Decor
I love the way A Beach Cottage utilizes a neutral palette as a way to add in textures galore. Shells are a great part of this galore.
Shoshana Gosselin added this to Give Your Coffee Table an Extra Shot of Style
Here is another nautical theme using a runner down the table. I love the way the decor items — all different in sizes, shape and texture — flow down the length of the runner. My eye goes up, down, then up again.
Shoshana Gosselin added this to Living Rooms With a Personal Stamp Of Style
Instead of using traditional end tables for your sofa, add a different type of accent table, such as a small dresser. You get more storage out of it, too.
Becky Harris added this to 5 Spectacular Australian Homes
5. A beach cottage makeover in Sydney. One of our very first Houzz Tours was with Sarah, the blogger behind A Beach Cottage. While her home (and our interview format) has evolved since this interview posted, I still love perusing her easy-breezy beach style.
Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to 5 Comfy Decorating Styles That Say 'Welcome!'
Let’s start with Shabby Chic, because it’s been such a hot style over the past couple of decades. Rachel Ashwell introduced this look in 1989 out of her conviction that the imperfect is beautiful. It features slipcovers and vintage furniture and accessories, and was an almost-instant hit because of its comfortable, inviting look.
