Italian designer Paola Navone’s new collection for Ethimo has arrived.
For the uninitiated, Ethimo is an Italian company that crafts high-quality outdoor furnishings and décor. The company pulls design inspirations from the Mediterranean landscape, while priding themselves on a craftsmanship that keeps comfort and practicality in mind, with an aesthetic that enhances any outdoor area.
The new collection, designed by veteran architect and interior designer Paola Navone, includes a range of daybeds, coffee tables, lounge chairs and more.
Navone pulled inspiration from her surroundings and travels in order to craft this Rafael collection. “The slats that form the backrest are all different and held together by big metal staples,” Navone said. “This woody, organic shell forms a soft nest of cushions.”
The collection is crafted from distressed natural teak, with marble and lava stone slabs for tabletops.
The chairs and daybeds see left-hand and right-hand orientated designs, which allows the owner to put them side by side, combining them into a single, seamless and larger piece — ideal for expansive terraces or poolsides for a more convivial feel.
The coffee tables also matches with an irregular shape, washed with cerulean and ocean-inspired colours throughout that really bring to mind those holiday vibes of the Mediterranean every time you lounge on them.
“We have dedicated Rafael to a very special home.”
Paola Navone’s collection is now available and you can head to Ethimo’s online shop to order your favourite pieces.
