Born in the Florida Keys… Coastal Source is the brainchild of the D’Ascanio brothers, Tony, Franco and Amedeo. Their company, D’Asign Source, designs and builds waterfront estate properties. With more than 50 years of experience the D’Ascanio brothers have had countless encounters with products boasting lifetime warranties and claiming to be rust-proof, marine quality and 100% corrosion resistant… yet deteriorated in the harsh, coastal environment. Often quickly.
The D’Ascanio brothers had to do better for their demanding clientele. Starting in the 1970′s they began to design and manufacture truly weather-proof outdoor speakers and audio systems. They also experimented by incorporating exotic materials into concrete molds to arrive at more durable architectural elements and features to adorn the custom homes they were building. These experiments led to the design of new materials and technologies they continue to incorporate into the properties they build. Their goal? To produce the ultimate turn-key, low-maintenance coastal home.
In the late 1980′s the Keys and Caribbean experienced a cyclical increase in storm activity. This weather phenomenon caused salt damage and corrosion to accelerate. This damage was very obvious on exterior fixtures and especially so on plants and landscapes. So, the D’Ascanios set out to find a better way. In the years that followed they tracked every detail regarding palms and plants living in coastal conditions. This research offered tremendous insight to plants that are more salt, drought and storm tolerant. In 1995 they opened a nursery, D’Asign Source Botanicals. Today, their nursery is internationally known for its unusually hardy and beautiful coastal specimen plants.
2011 marks the year Coastal Source finally opens to the public. Their comprehensive line of products includes light fixtures, ceiling fans, door hardware, outdoor cooking and audio video entertainment components.
