Paola Lenti – Italian amazingness!
Still on my Italian theme (and sadly not actually in Italy), I wanted to showcase the drop dead gorgeous designs from Paola Lenti (swoon). Formerly a graphic designer, Paolo started the company in 1994 in Milan which has since ‘established itself as an international reference in the world of design’. She invested time and money in researching the latest textiles and develops all the dyes and colours from scratch to produce high-quality, high-tech pieces. In 2003 the company started manufacturing outdoor furniture, offering ‘an indoor style for outdoor use’. The products are timeless, durable, elegant, original, modern and most importantly comfortable. So comfortable in fact, that you could easily lose a few hours in a Paola Lenti induced coma on one of the Ease seating elements (see here). The extended outdoor range includes gazebos, sails, screens, braziers and benches and the Joy Collection for children (O.M.G.). So get ready to be inspired by my picks from the Paolo Lenti Outdoor range.
