RÉCIF DE CORAIL
Newport’s collection of artificial corals is a tribute to French Polynesia and the island paradise of Bora Bora. The island is surrounded by turquoise waters dotted with luxurious bungalows whose glass floors allow guests to gaze straight down into the colourful coral reefs below. Everything is framed by volcanic mountains, deep rainforests and a romantic sense of tranquility.
The tropics attract Hollywood stars and billionaires hungry for a South Sea adventure. Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban, as well as Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux, are among the celebrity couples who have chosen to spend their honeymoon on the remote island of Bora Bora in the southern Pacific Ocean.
A HIDDEN WORLD
Like a hidden world, the coral reef is there, far beneath the surface of the sea. Teeming with exotic fish, the mysterious and fascinating coral reefs consist of large limestone structures formed by the coral animals’ skeletons on the seabed. It has taken many millions of years to build the coral reefs that exist today. Coral reefs are among the planet’s most species-rich environments. They are nurseries for many different species of fish and supply light, fine sand to our beaches.
Newport’s coral sculptures are reminiscent of the under-sea beauty that we want to preserve. Skilled craftsmanship creates an exclusive sense of the vastness of the sea. Each treasure of the sea is presented in pure, crisp white, mounted on a beautiful, solid pedestal with an engraved emblem underneath. A unique collection in which each copy is numbered and handmade. Your coral is delivered in an exquisite gift box in a green turquoise hue reminiscent of salty sea breezes.
Newport’s coral sculptures add a unique look to any room. A coral looks great in a window, on a shelf or in a still life with other lovely decorations. Unfortunately, the world’s coral reefs are in danger of vanishing, but the corals in Newport’s Bora Bora collection obviously do not encroach on nature. Our sculptures are made of carefully selected artificial materials that create an air of authenticity. Bring one or more of our corals, all inspired by popular French girls’ names, into your home to spread a sense of paradise.
It’s not difficult to understand why the Portuguese explorers who landed on the islands in the 16th century were amazed at the beauty of the French Polynesian archipelagos. For the next few centuries, explorers from various European countries continued to visit the enchanting cluster of islands. Yet the 118 islands and atolls that make up French Polynesia were not officially united until 1889.
