Coast New Zealand was established by Nicola and Alex Webster in 2004. Having observed America's Cup yacht racing on Auckland's Hauraki Gulf from several uncomfortable spectator boats, Alex developed the Marine Bean - literally a marine beanbag - through a design process that involved trial and error and quite a lot of lounging about in prototypes.
While still popular on yachts, the Marine Bean has since found its real home ashore in homes, hotels and resorts in New Zealand and around the world and remains our best-selling product.
The Marine Bean is the original outdoor beanbag a modern classic that can be found in houses, hotels and yachts from the Bay of Islands to Bermuda.The Marine Bean is made in New Zealand from marine-grade Sunbrella® brand fabric: tough enough to stay out-of-doors year-round, yet smart enough to complement the most elegant interior. Lightweight (but heavy-duty) the Marine Bean is truly transportable, true indoor/outdoor furniture.

What makes us different?
Coast New Zealand was established by Nicola and Alex Webster with the specific goal of establishing a luxury brand that would reflect New Zealand's unique quality of life. We have drawn the inspiration from the rewards and challenges of life by the sea: simple, relaxing and beautiful, but rugged and unforgiving.
