It’s surprising we haven’t actually gotten proper beach-themed furniture yet. Yeah, there’s some random pieces like the surfboard and deck chairs, and you can sort of display your beach shells, but I mean a whole unified set.
Coral grows in beds, so, of course, your bed should be made of coral too with a cushion to offset the pointy bits. This one’s a bit obvious, but a huge clam as a sofa is a natural fit for this kind of theme and again, it’s really surprising we didn’t see that in the Mermaid theme in New Leaf.
Chairs have plenty of possibilities, from high-backed chairs made from tall seaweed to sprays of bubbles for your armchairs, or even a conch shell in place of a regular chair.
On top of that, you’d get points for bringing in things like fish and your finds from the beach because in this Animal Crossing fantasy, the game recognizes related pieces of furniture that aren’t technically part of the set.
With that in mind, we could have all kinds of crossovers with the pirate and mermaid sets too — a driftwood barrel here, a treasure chest there, a shell screen or lamp at the other end of the room. I have no idea how challenging it would be to make the game recognize relevance over just strict theme membership, but why not dream?
