Surfboard Shelf

The best way to compliment your Hawaiian bedding is to add some fun surf themed accessories. Dean Miller just added some great, very high quality surfboard wall shelves to display photo frames, or anything else that needs a new home.

We carry a few different models of surfboard shelves to choose from. If you have an area that just needs a little something to bring the bare wall together, we have our Nose rider Surfboard Shelf, and we also carry a longer full length version of the surfboard shelf with a surfboard fin and all.

Only surfers know how great a good nose ride can be, this surfboard shelf will remind you of how great a long long board wave can be. This surfboard shelf is unlike any other shelf, and all your guests will be asking you where you got this unique surfboard shelf. Surfboard shelves are made of solid wood construction and are easy to put on any wall and are very durable. The surfboard shelf has classic walnut stringers, a single fin support, solid wood construction and easily mounts on any wall. No cheap plywood used in our surfboard shelves.

Our surfboard shelf is made of wood, a natural product with inherent blemishes, variations and inconsistencies in surface appearance and texture and in finished color and appearance.

Paradise Point - New Hawaiian Fabric Added

Dean Miller has added a new Hawaiian fabric to be made into such items as comforters, duvet covers, hemmed sheet sets, window treatments and more. This new design is called "Paradise Point" and is set on a lighter blue background with classic Hawaiian motifs.

DM412 - Paradise Point Tropical Comforter - Dean Miller has turned this Hawaiian artwork into a bedroom paradise to be forever enjoyed night after night. Grand motifs direct from the isle of Hawaii adorn this island beauty. You don't need much else in Hawaii except a ukulele, a canoe, swaying palm trees, surfboards, fragrant tropical flowers, and a thatched hut to sleep in. It's just like living in paradise with your friendly beach bum, Dean Miller. This Paradise Point beach comforter captures the mood and beauty of everything that tropical islands offer.

This great tropical bedding design has been inspired by Hawaiian shirts, and is made of 100% cotton material for the ultimate sleep experience.

Beach Lover launches a home decor business

You have to acknowledge that lots of creativity comes from the surf community. With clothes, shoes, equipment and special events, it's as if anyone who ever rode a wave strives to preserve his or her lifestyle by turning the hobby into a business.

Doug Smith is just such an action sports entrepreneur. Dean Miller surf-inspired bedding is a decor business launched by Smith immediately after he finished his MBA at Chapman University in Orange, in 1999. He knew exactly what he wanted to do - to make items that appealed to thousands of beach lovers like him.

Bedspreads, sheets, throws, crib sets, and duvets are not terms you're likely to discuss with gnarly surfer dudes. But Smith is all about thread count and other considerations in the home furnishings field.

The company is named after surf legend Dean Miller, whom Smith learned about on his Kauai honeymoon.

"Legend says that Dean Miller lived in the rain forest, bathed in the waterfalls and slept on beds of flowers," Smith said.

"Bed of flowers" was the "Aha!" moment for Smith. Taking inspiration from vintage Hawaiian shirts, Smith designed his line of bedding for children when all that was available was Laura Ashley and "Star Wars."

Now Dean Miller Prints has developed into a line of decor items - from curtains to surfboard rugs, quilts to baby gear. Prices range from $24.99 for an infant Burp's Up onesie to $175.00 for king size comforter sheets.
