at home with Alfresco

Coral looks amazing no matter how you style it, but we have put together a few examples to help you showoff your coral to its best advantage.

A classic grouping is to place a large piece of coral on a pile of your favourite books to elevate the piece on a coffee table. You may like to place a clear piece of plastic under the coral or gently sand off any sharp pieces on the bottom to prevent scratching your book covers.

Don't be afraid to mix different types of corals to create a cabinet of curiosities feel. In the image below fan coral, blue coral and white coral have all been mixed harmoniously together on our Portland Hutch.

Our real coral is harvested using the highest, world-class sustainable practices, but we also have a new collection of life-like coral that are crafted from resin and displayed on acrylic stands.

Small coral pieces can also be very effective when grouped together in a timber or glass bowl. We particularly like the image below where we took a large timber bowl and filled it with sand, candles and coral. You can also use a small piece of coral on a tray with soaps in the bathroom or next to a candle on a bedside table.

If you are taking your coral overseas you will require an export permit, which we can supply with your purchase. To clean coral, soak overnight in bleach, hose gently and dry thoroughly in the sunshine.

Please note that most of our real coral is for sale in-store only and is often too fragile to ship.

Our coral supplier has been operating since 1957 and they are the only licensed harvester exclusively supplying Australian white decor coral. They guarantee that all of their coral is harvested under precise, scientifically-developed management policies that are regularly reviewed to ensure there is no harm to the Great Barrier Reef. This is also achieved through limited quota, prior logbook reporting, compliance checks, hand-collection of fast-growing species, scientific assessments and voluntary stewardship. They work closely with the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority, Queensland Fisheries and scientists at James Cook University.
