"After moving to the Northern Beaches I needed some expert assistance to create a stylish yet relaxed atmosphere for our beach house. I was delighted to find Florence Fleming and Beachwood Designs at Avalon.
Florence was able to help me select furniture and rugs, cover existing pieces in new fabrics, and find artwork and decorative homewares to create a fresh, stylish and coastal feel. Beachwood specialises in custom-made furniture and I was delighted with the renovation of an existing piece and a couple of new solid oak items that are beautiful and functional. Working with Florence is a joy as she always listens to what the client wants and works tirelessly to achieve an excellent outcome.
With the help of Florence and Beachwood, our beach house is now exactly the home we hoped to create."
"We have been great fans of Beachwood furniture and homewares since we first moved down to the Northern Beaches 20 years ago. So when it came time to knock down our old house and rebuild our ‘dream home’ we immediately thought of using Beachwood to help us with our interiors.
We wanted stylish but casual to suit the waterfront location and Florence Fleming of Beachwood helped us achieve that goal perfectly. Florence was an absolute delight to work with, always listening to our thoughts and needs, and helped us choose furniture, fabrics, rugs and homewares that complemented each room beautifully. Several tables and sofas were also beautifully designed and custom-made to our requirements by Beachwood.
We could not be more pleased with the result and would recommend Florence and Beachwood’s services to anyone looking to achieve a stylish but relaxed feel to their home."
"A recent downsize and move to the beaches, (after many years in our family home) led me on a search for good quality, affordable, practical yet stylish furniture and homewares. I discovered Beachwood, a local, family run business, and apart from a couple of favourite pieces, I have furnished our 4 bedroom home entirely from Beachwood.
The staff are all so passionate about what they do, and the interior design service proved invaluable. Florence Fleming came to the house towards the end of construction, and had amazing vision and suggestions on not only the furniture, but also the finishing touches, from the rugs and cushions to the lighting, pictures, vases, mirrors and tableware.
Beachwood custom made a beautiful dining table for us, and a wall to wall computer desk to maximise space in a small study.Florence also guided us in choosing the finishing touches for our holiday home in the country. Although the styling is very different and appropriate to each location, both homes have a relaxed, calming feel and are visually very appealing.
I have no hesitations in recommending the team at Beachwood."
"We moved to the Northern Beaches in 2018 after a total rebuild of the home we had purchased. In our search for suitable furniture for our home we visited Beachwood and met Florence who impressed us with her knowledge and design flair.
From our very first meeting the service provided was exceptional. Florence listened to our brief and offered many excellent options. Beachwood supplied furniture, (both custom made and floor stock) lamps, custom made cushions, curtains, and homewares. The input of Florence and all the staff has help create a home that we absolutely love. Florence is a gifted interior designer who has, not only, vision and style but also an eye for detail, which meant the whole project ran smoothly and on time.
The result of of working with Florence and the team is an interior that is both functional yet beautiful which perfectly suits our beach setting."

"We are so thrilled with everything we have from Beachwood. The design advice is very reasonable and we have a very comfortable, relaxed feeling home that is constantly complimented by visitors. Very good quality furniture, knowledgeable and friendly staff, well priced, unique items , it’s a great shop. I keep going back! We’ve had a few custom made pieces too, we couldn’t be happier."
"While living overseas for a number of years we purchased our home on the Northern Beaches, renting it out until our return. We visited Beachwood on one of our many visits home and were impressed with the quality and variety of homeware they had on offer.
In a brief conversation at the time I inquired as to whether they offered an interior design service and yes, of course they did! On returning a number of years later and as we settled into our new home, I was having trouble conceptualising how our eclectic collection of furniture and treasures would fit into a beachside vibe. That was until I had the conversation with Florence!
She visited our house and looked at what we had, the space, and we discussed what look and feel we were looking for. The result - we have incorporated our treasures collected from across Asia and beyond with some beautiful pieces from Beachwood, including a range of amazing soft furnishings and custom made furniture from Beachwood. An added bonus has been the advice Florence has given on paint colours and room design - our house truly does feel like the home we dreamt of from afar.
I would highly recommend Florence and the team from Beachwood to anyone looking for expert advice and beautiful furnishings for their coastal home."
"Beachwood has been throughout the years a place of inspiration. The team are warm and approachable and that’s why when our city apartment was beginning to tire we decided to seek the advice of Florence Fleming and the team at Beachwood.
Every area of the brief was executed flawlessly and the final result was more than we could have imagined.
Beachwood have proven their styling is not just limited to coastal, I view our city apartment as sleek and sophisticated complementing surrounding views, opening up space and using light to create a special place for our family to visit. We could not have been more delighted. Thank you to Florence and Beachwood for making this experience such a pleasure."
