When you visit Mad River you will 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. Owner, Gwen Tanner, and her friendly staff have embraced this relaxed coastal lifestyle and are eager to share that with everyone who walks through the door.  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 will assist you with your decorating dilemmas or to find just the right gift. 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.  Stop in to browse our ever-changing collection of products. And don’t forget to ask about our shop-dogs Sailor & Fish -- one or both are nearly always here waiting for a treat or a tummy rub!
