There’s nothing quite like that first summer beach day. The combination of sparkling water, salty breezes, and sounds of waves crashing against the shoreline is intoxicating. Perhaps you’ve returned home sleepy, sunkissed, and content, with a seashell or two, maybe a prized piece of seaglass, and despite best efforts, even tracked in a little sand. We’ve assembled furnishings from shops around Rhode Island to help recreate that wonderful casual vacation vibe all season long.
