We Make the Rooms You Live in the Rooms You Love

Specializing in Coastal Lifestyle and Home Design



At Mad River you’ll discover a collection of carefully selected furniture and home accessories as well as a variety of locally made and hand-selected gifts. Our style is simple yet classic. It’s a little bit coastal, a little bit cottage, and a lot about comfort and surrounding ourselves with the things we love.

Whether you’ve just moved to Southport, have a second home on a nearby beach, or simply love to visit the coast, Gwen and her staff are ready to help with your decorating desires or dilemmas or to find just the right gifts.

What We Do

We offer in-store and in-home design consultations and have a library of furniture, lighting, and accessories catalogs in addition to what’s in store.
