Margaritaville Resort Orlando, the planned Jimmy Buffett-inspired vacation destination, is getting Buffettier (we know that's not a real word) thanks to a new partnership with Ethan Allen.
The brains behind the Margaritaville destination teamed up with the folks from furniture company Ethan Allen to design four exclusive collections that will decorate the vacation homes inside the resort.
"Our partnership with Ethan Allen, an esteemed brand that has molded the furniture industry for more than 80 years, provides our vacation rental owners with an easy, turn-key "rent ready" furniture package to create the atmosphere of their new Margaritaville vacation home," said Jim Bagley, the project's developer.
The collections include items for bedrooms, kitchens, dining rooms and living rooms. Below are the package descriptions:
· Beach House: With weathered finishes and seashell tones, this furniture package is made for lazy days and sandy toes. Beach House offers charming, sun-kissed, cottage-style furniture with sea glass, mother-of-pearl and coral-look accent pieces.
· License to Chill: License to Chill® offers an easy beachcomber attitude with a sense of adventure. This look blends natural textures and warm wood finishes with energetic yellow, orange, and turquoise accents. Highlights include charming shutter-style beds and cabinets, well-built rustic wood tables, driftwood accents, and hip colorful pillows.
· Son of a Sailor: With comfort as the captain, Son of a Sailor is anchored in classic nautical style, but its sights are set on a fresh modern destination. Artisan-crafted, marine-inspired treasures showcase a unique seafaring style, while hand-tailored upholstered beds and seats are dressed in wearable fabrics like vintage denims, textural twills, and chic cottons.
· In Paradise: In Paradise is a timeless tropical style featuring vibrant colors and chic, casual comforts. White and wood finishes are infused with colorful accent pieces in lemon and lime, orange and teal, and palm green and Pacific blue. Laid-back, escape-worthy seats are hand-tailored in natural, feel-good fabrics and the seaside cottage styles deliver bold shapes, turned posts and hand-carved aprons.
A groundbreaking ceremony for Margaritaville Resort Orlando is scheduled for July 27. The development features 1,000 residential units, including a mix of vacation rental homes and timeshare units. The entire project also calls for a dining and entertainment district, swimming areas, a 12-acre water park, 200,000 square feet of retail and a variety of recreational activities.
It's expected to open in 2018.
