With luxury design and comfort at its core, we introduce new, innovative brand, Oyster Catcher Coastal.
This fantastic new company was founded because the team wanted to bring the history of the ‘Basket’ up to date. But what is a Basket? Rewind to Germany in the days of the Kaiser, circa 1882, when the very first version of this type of wicker seat was designed by the Royal basket maker. According to the Oyster team, they were placed on benches, allowing the gentry who had taken the waters of the Baltic sea to relax and enjoy the elements in mid-summer, as well as in early spring and late autumn. This early basket gave them protection from the environment at either end of the summer.
“…there is a level of both sophistication and versatility to these outdoor accessories that allows them to be uniquely tailored to your personal taste.”
Now fast-forward to 2018, and Oyster Catcher Coastal have brought the Basket up to date, turning it into a garden accessory that will simply embed itself into your home, offering comfort throughout the seasons. Brimming with history and packed with practicality, the Oyster team have also ensured that this fabulous chair oozes elegance.
Boasting three stylish models – Hamptons, Cape Cod and Nantucket – there is a level of both sophistication and versatility to these outdoor accessories that allows them to be uniquely tailored to your personal taste. Whether it’s the contemporary design of Hamptons, the nautical feel of Nantucket or the traditional charm of Cape Cod, Oyster Catcher Coastal offer a range of different features in each model, and a list of extra options are available to be added, making your basket completely unique to you and your home. From an additional cocktail table to a champagne bucket holder, the team have thought of everything so that you can make the most of an afternoon spent basking in the sunshine. The best part is that even if the wind starts to pick up, your bespoke basket is designed to protect you from all sides, with the hood overhead keeping away those pesky breezes.
Made from high-quality materials, with a durable yet aesthetically pleasing design, a Basket from Oyster Catcher Coastal is a real luxury, one that we certainly recommend treating yourself to over the coming summer months!
To see one of these marvellous Baskets in action, the Nantucket Basket is currently on display at Lucy Orr Interiors in Rock, where you’ll find plenty of inspiration for fitting one into your own lifestyle!
