OUT­DOOR ‘ MANILA’ CHAIR BY PAOLA NAVONE FOR BAX­TER

ELLE Decoration (UK) - - Elle Deco -

With a slen­der struc­ture and an ex­otic sil­hou­ette, this out­door chair by Ital­ian de­signer Navone is de­signed to bring glam­our to gar­dens. A large part of its vis­ual strength is thanks to its hand­picked ma­te­ri­als – manila reed tubing (which gives the project its name), ox­i­dised copper for the frame, and leather-wrapped tech­ni­cal cord for the wo­ven seat. In or­der to pro­tect the chair from the el­e­ments, a spe­cial leather tan­ning tech­nique and In­dian ink dye have been used, which limit the age­ing and fad­ing caused by UV rays. This ex­tra pro­tec­tion en­sures this de­sign will last many sum­mers. £7,056, Sil­vera (sil­ver­altd.co.uk; bax­ter.it).
