Like an architecture that is in keeping with its surroundings, the Kettal Maia outdoor furniture collection designed by Patricia Urquiola has a natural lightness and elegance. The design of the artisan braiding, the sturdiness of the aluminium frame and the new, Porotex and chenille fabric collection create a combination that oozes energy.
Suave is the product of the geniality of Marcel Wanders, who created a unique collection full of materials and textures for the renowned Spanish furniture company, Vondom. Some of the most exquisite pieces are a sophisticated modular sofa, upholstered in a unique fabric as well as comfortable pouffes, an ornamented coffee table and an exceptional table lamp, all of which provide a glamorous and warm touch to any outdoor space.
Whether functioning as a table, chair, container or surface to rest on, Belu bench is a versatile piece of outdoor furniture that combines a multitude of different uses within a single, sweeping gesture. As an object, Belu defines the space around it – and it is in turn defined by the way it is used. Originally produced for large-scale installation and exhibited in London and Miami, every detail of this renowned work from Zaha Hadid’s studio has now been carefully scaled down to suit a domestic setting. Belu can be used inside or outside and incorporates discreet drawers for storage.
Created by the visionary Jean Nouvel, this outdoor collection for EMU looks to the future to establish itself as an icon of urban furniture. Mia, with its minimal design and formal shapes, can bring character to any setting, both outdoor and indoor. Table and chairs are easily placed, even in the smallest of spaces, bringing an immediate and unmistakable charm to their surroundings. Versatile and iconic Mia furniture offers the perfect blend of design, functionality and strength for simple, sophisticated spaces, both residential and contract.
Imagine a modular lounge combining the comfort and sophistication of the world’s finest indoor systems with the outdoor know-how and barefoot luxury one expects from DEDON. That’s RAYN, dreamed up by Philippe Starck. From its specially developed cushions to the asymmetrical beauty of its design, accentuated by armrests so generous they double as side tables, RAYN takes lounging to the next level. Available in the weather-proof DEDON Fiber in two sophisticated colours, Veneto and Salina, RAYN also comes in an innovative woven textile version that’s perfect for use under a covered terrace.
The Candy chairs by India Mahdavi are designed in unique combinations and graphics. These adorable chairs love living on the terrace or on a balcony and just waiting to get lost in the kitchen.
Top Luxury Brands
The Graphic Lamps collection by DelightFULL is comprised of a wide variety of lighting designs, whether letters or symbols, that feature a sleek form and a soothing light effect. These contemporary pieces are perfect to give an extra lustrous glow to one’s outdoors.
Chairs from Vitra line up around the dining table or find a home in the bedroom corner, but they are also suitable for outdoor use – whether on the balcony or in the garden. As soon as the time of year for outdoor life has come, simply take our chairs outside. Designed by Jasper Morrison, the All Plastic Chair is reminiscent of classic wooden chairs while advancing the appearance and functionality of this typology. The graceful chair combines great stability with excellent comfort, being the perfect outdoor chairs.
Kettal has been in the market since 1966 as a design and innovation authority in the interior design world. The Spanish brand is known for its outstanding outdoor furniture designs and its growth has been so rapid that they have acquired both Hugonet and Triconfort as part of the Kettal Group.
With the BREA collection, designers Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby have conceived an outdoor lounge system of quiet luxury and superior quality. Sophisticated and refined construction, together with an ingenious system of connectors, give the collection a modern profile and maximum versatility. Advanced cushion design in waterproof fabrics with a special covering of the core and elaborate belting on the frame bring indoor levels of comfort to the outdoors. The designers’ attention to quality and detail at every step is perfectly expressed in BREA’s aesthetic of elegant simplicity.
A veritable icon made by Kartell, the mass-tinted polypropylene Bubble Club sofa was a pioneer of a new concept in furniture accessories: the industrial sofa was made entirely of plastic. Bubble Club, a collaboration with Philippe Starck, is a roomy two-seater sofa, characterized by the soft line of its armrests, in contrast with the more rational lines of the backrest. This is a minimalist silhouette, reminiscent of the lines of “granny’s sofa”. Along with the armchair and the small table, produced with the same finish and colours, Bubble Club is now a complete family, nothing less than an “industrial living-room”. Thanks to their exceptional weather resistance, all three members of the Bubble Club family can survive perfectly outdoors and are the ideal patio furniture.
Carl Hansen & Son outdoors collection in collaboration with the Danish architect, Bodil Kjær, is beyond beautiful. Featuring warm-toned teak, able to withstand changing weather conditions, this collection has a deep focus on weather resistant outdoor design solutions. The wood used in the pieces requires very little maintenance and takes on a more beautiful colour over time if you choose not to treat it with oil.
The Caulfield Company is a long-established family business known for offering innovative furniture design pieces, tailored to the personal requirements of any client. Not only that, but the company is also passionate about creating high-quality pieces and their eye for detail is immaculate. One of this year’s biggest outdoor trends is having a kitchen that opens onto the living area. This is practical while providing a modern twist to any outdoor space.
Nanimarquina‘s motto is ‘transferring the warmth of interior spaces to outdoors areas’, and you surely can see it. Their designer, Nani Marquina, in her most recent collection features a range of outdoor rugs completely made out of PET plastic. Even though not wool, PET plastic, has both visual and tactile similarities to it. What’s the big plus of using this material? It has wool-like properties in terms of fire resistance, but it also provides great water and UV resistance.”
For over 20 years, TUUCI has been creating the most innovative, unique and stylish shade platforms in the industry. Founded with a passion by Dougan Clarke, TUUCI was born from the marine industry. This means every single parasol, lounge and cabana they create has been meticulously engineered to perform without question, in any environment. Beyond simply performing, they also turn heads as TUUCI products are built with an unparalleled sense of style and design not seen anywhere else in the world.
Every outdoor piece of furniture tells a unique story of talent and innovation. An object, a style or a landscape can become a powerful source of inspiration for the designer. B&B Italia creates collections that stand apart in terms of design, personality and materials. The Erica collection of sofas, armchairs and small chairs that was so successfully launched in 2017 has been enhanced in 2019 with new sofas, still based on the same characteristic curved backrest and interlacing as before but offering a deeper seat and lived-in appearance.
