This & That

beach house decor inspiration

It’s been a while since we’ve done a This & That post. This coastal living room features one my favorite color combos – coral and aqua. It reminds me of a relaxing beach sunset so it’s fitting that the featured iron fish sculpture is called “Coastal Sunset Sam”. Made exclusively by Chase Allen for the Iron Fish Gallery, this Iron Fish Art would be the perfect addition to your beach house decor.

Eat the meat but keep the trophy?  Here is your option to skip the trip to the taxidermist when you catch that trophy Mahi Mahi / Dolphin.  This steel sculpture is an artistic rendering of your catch at what ever size you want handcrafted by renowned coastal sculptor Chase Allen at The Iron Fish Studio.  Not photographed but as easily accomplished are Chase Allen’s renderings of wall hung sail fish, tuna, wahoo, bonita, cobia, and many other sought after sport fish.

I hope all of you had enjoyable and memorable season. After filling lots of holiday orders, we’ve taken a little time off to relax and enjoy our coastal Christmas here in the lowcountry. We’re excited for the new year and have big plans here at The Iron Fish. We thank you for your continued support and wish you much happiness and success in 2012.
