Living in the open air

Category:

Home overlooks ‘en plein air’ spaces to enjoy nature. Places are interpreted, furnishing reinvented. Key word: flexibility.

New fabrics for upholstered pieces, with innovative technical characteristics in a mix and match of materials more suitable for the outdoor, and more resistant to the humidity, salt, sun and chlorine of swimming pools’ edges. Little suspended pagodas, lanterns, beds in wicker, canopies in rattan reminding of the exotic atmospheres of Berber tales, hammocks and gazebos and white draperies. There are many classy solutions to let the park of an elegant villa become really special, or the patio of a house in front of the sea, or a luxurious garden on the edge of a swimming pool. Everyone is looking for ‘accessible’ escapes, in an age making us live daily at more and more frantic rhythms.

A sophisticated scenography frames and creates a new privacy for prestige abodes of unvaried elegance: easy-chic atmospheres, featuring minimal prestigious furniture and essential solutions. Outdoor spaces are distinguished by absolute relax, on the edge of a swimming pool or in a garden. Chaises longues, sofas and footstools, with big fancy cushions create domestic islands, wide and cosy, for convivial occasions and social events. Again, bright sofas, woven chairs and cocktail tables for terraces and escape gardens. A new attention to design connects domestic space to reception.

Interiors and exteriors engage a fluid and magnetic dialogue, offering a new way of living, with a continuity between private and hospitality, characterised by matching colours and coordinated furnishing, defined by wide windows and majestic plants. It’s the homes of contemporary living, where even skyscrapers don’t give up green and little Edens can be found on the most coveted rooftops in town. Ready to discover the relationship with nature through the direct experience and the privileged observation of the environment, moving from the nearest spaces around us and our privacy.

Enjoying the pleasure of living outdoor, of a garden and its hidden corners, of a sheltering porch or of a wide and open terrace over a metropolitan landscape, observing seasons and the various hours of the day, furnishing the outdoor with the same care and refinement dedicated to the rooms. A new idea of living outdoor, transforming ephemeral moments of escape in inalienable occasions of recollection and return to the serenity of life.
