GRAND LIFE COLLECTION
Grand Life design by Christophe Pillet
A new collection of lounge chairs destined for large and prestigious outdoor spaces. The pickled or natural teak structure with metal core is covered with large cushions that welcome the body with a feeling of deep and enveloping comfort.
The weaving, inspired by the classic Vienna straw, is made of synthetic material, resistant to UV rays and abrasion. The large proportions, the soft cushions made with soft-touch fabrics and specific for outdoor use, increase the sense of comfort and well-being.
A collection for a ‘Grand Life’ en plein air capable of transmitting tactile sensations and visual characteristics of the most elegant indoor situations.
One of our favourite outdoor brands, Ethimo, draws inspiration from Italian al fresco living and we adore the laid-back designs and rich materials featured in their furnishings.
Ethimo was founded in 2009, by a family with a long heritage in the outdoor furniture business. After selling their previous business in 2006, the Confidati family – in particular its second generation; Marco and Francesca with her husband Gian Paolo – wanted to create a new outdoor furniture brand. Ethimo is Greek for ‘tradition’ or ‘origin’ and the family started their brand journey with very traditional materials and shapes, reinterpreted into a more contemporary collection. The aim was to capture Italian outdoor living style and make a successful business story out of it.
This brand’s mission is to promote the Italian style of outdoor living. This style is made of specific materials, like natural teak wood, and traditional shapes, which are suited to a kind of easy living which encourages you to enjoy outdoor spaces with a laid-back attitude.
Ethimo’s style inspirations primarily come from tradition and nature. The designs are usually created with indoor furnishings in mind which are then modified to match outdoor furniture requirements. Our current most important designer, Patrick Norguet, has really driven our design direction from traditional indoor shapes to outdoor functionality.
People have everything today but the feeling of being integrated with the surrounding environment is one of the ancestral needs of every human being. They think their furniture can play a role in this process, to allow the customers to better enjoy nature and their outdoor living spaces.
