Maine Cottage’s furniture is about bright coastal style.

Walking into Maine Cottage’s flagship store in Annapolis is like venturing into a crayon box with every shade imaginable—complete with quirky names, such as Calypso (sea green), Creamsicle (mustard yellow) and Smoothie (pale pink). The store features sea-blue dining chairs, salmon-colored tables and canary-yellow bookcases. This is the place to shop if you’re looking to add a splash of color to your home.
“Color cures,” says Lauren Russell, 40, creative director for Maine Cottage. “When you fill your home with color, it’s amazing what happens. You’re filling yourself with happiness. It’s an all-natural cure.”
The brand has been around for 25 years and is known for chic coastal-style furniture. The 2,000-square-foot flagship store, which opened in December of 2012, is a repurposed 1800s livery stable, complete with reclaimed hardwood floors, sliding barn doors and a concrete slab embedded with old sail flags to symbolize the city’s nautical heritage.
If you’re not sure which shade will work best in your abode, have a seat at the store’s Color Bar, where design specialists are available for complimentary consultations to help select paint and fabric options. An interaction screen allows you to see what the furniture will look like in your desired hues, and customers have 50 colors and more than 60 patterns from which to choose.
In addition to furniture, fabric and paint, Maine Cottage offer accessories, such as candles, lighting, rugs and throw pillows, with price points from $30 to $80. Need some artwork to add a finishing touch? Maine Cottage has that, too, including a series featuring local artists—with more options for pops of color.
