What's New

Elizabeth Eakins hosts a book signing with interior designer and author Nina Freudenberger and her new book, Surf Shack: Laid-Back Living by the Water.

Join us afterwards for cocktails as we toast Nina and our talented window designer, Parrish Chilcoat of Cameron Design.

In SURF SHACK: Laid-Back Living by the Water (Clarkson Potter; April 11, 2017; $35.00; Hardcover), interior designer Nina Freudenberger gives readers a glimpse inside the bungalows, trailers, cabins, and beach homes where surfers retreat after a day on the waves. Here are houses of both longtime enthusiasts and dedicated newcomers that reflect not just a sport or passion, but also a way of life.

The twenty-six surfers stories are brought to life by writer Heather Summerville, and include artists, designers, and creatives who all have found a way to intersect their love of the water with their entire way of living. Locations and aesthetics range from a desert hideaway in Ojai, California, a coastal cabin in Bell’s Beach, Australia, and a mountain house in Hayama, Japan, to a farmhouse family compound in Malibu, California, a converted B&B in West Marin, California, a houseboat in the Rockaways, and a Nordic A-frame in Montauk, New York. The book is an authentic glimpse into the world of surfers and surf culture through their domestic environments, and beautiful photography by Brittany Ambridge captures the lifestyle, architecture, interior décor, and details of these like-minded surfers from around the world.

With more than 250 vibrant photographs of room details and bright beaches, SURF SHACK captures the soulful milieu of a lifestyle we all aspire to.
