the Simplicity of a Flounder

7 Aug

The easygoing Flounder resides in coastal lagoons and estuaries of the northern Atlantic and Pacific oceans. A familiar form, the subtle flounder varies extraordinarily in color and pattern according to its surroundings. A talent we typically associate with chameleons. One not completely different from how we choose to furnish our own living spaces – unique places that suit our lifestyle and aesthetic preferences. Places where we feel happy and comfortable – at home.

A Summer Flounder’s natural ability to live in perfect harmony with its environment is remarkable. The subtle, yet rich depth of color, texture and pattern of this fish are pleasing to behold on their own and enhanced even more by its complementary pebbly habitat.

Surprisingly, a Maine Cottage Audrey Chaise in Clay Granula fabric and an Atlantic-dwelling flounder of the sandy-bottomed sea have things in common. A stretch of the imagination? Surround yourself with the understated simplicity of warm, textural neutrals on comfortable seating to experience the same calm repose of this unflappable fish.

There are flounders of a different ilk too. Still extraordinarily adept at the art of melding within their element, a blue-dotted Peacock Flounder is exquisite within its vivid rocky Pacific abode.

Like a Peacock Flounder (LOVE that name), an Audrey Chaise in porch/bluebell Hotty Dotty is playfully pleasing to the eye. Its color and simple repeating dot pattern combine effortlessly with Audrey’s rolling form and blend with other complementary colors. A Peacock Flounder would feel right at home. What kind of Flounder are you?
