Coco Republic enters the US
Australian furniture retailer Coco Republic has launched its outdoor collection at HD Buttercup, a showroom in Los Angeles.
The move last week represents Coco Republic’s first foray into the US market.
“This line is one that I’m incredibly proud of, having designed the majority of the collection in-house,” Anthony Spon-Smith, Coco Republic’s creative director, said in a statement about the launch.
“It is even more exciting to start seeing my designs in Californian homes for the first time.”
The collection, which was inspired by coastal Californian living and its alfresco lifestyle, includes 40 items selected exclusively for the US market.
Pieces include teak dining tables and contemporary chairs for entertaining, modular lounges and sofas and a mix of occasional pieces, including accent stools and planters. They are made from a mix of natural and manmade materials and textures, including teak, concrete and outdoor rope.
The 40-year-old furniture retailer recently announced plans to enter the New Zealand market, with its first international store set to open in Westfield Newmarket in Auckland mid-year.
“We’ve been on an exciting growth strategy over the last few years,” Coco Republic CEO Nicholas Foster told Inside Retail in a previous interview.
“We’re a premium aspirational design services brand but we’ve consciously focused on ensuring that we remain accessible from a customer’s perspective,” he said.
