Getting it all out in the open

by Gaia Grassi
The outdoors furniture collections from all the leading international brands are all paying homage to nature these days. And not simply because they are designed for use al fresco, but because they aspire to being natural in terms of both their forms and materials.
Hence leaf-shaped sun loungers, kitchens hewn from solid blocks of stone, lava-tiled coffee tables, seats upholstered in natural fibres and tables with tops that look like tree trunk sections. Teak, luxury hard woods and marble all make an appearance too.
The shapes are soft and harmonious for the most part exuding a pared-back simplicity to keep things visually light. Another design trend is to break down the barriers between interior and exterior and that extends also to penning furnishings perfect for both interior and exterior use. Because these days, continuity is the name of the game.
