Sun-drenched days and balmy nights call for outdoor living. We share a selection of on-trend furniture and accessories.
Designed by Stephen Burks, the Ahanda wing chair from Dedon, has all the style, comfort and attention to detail that one would expect of bespoke indoor pieces. Burks drew inspiration from the weaving culture of the Philippines to develop the chair’s signature open weave. The woven pattern itself consists of three shades of red fibre, creating a subtle yet alluring vibrancy. Plus it’s designed to withstand the elements. Visit Canetime.com.
Dedon’s Mbrace collection by Sebastian Larkner features an open mesh-like triaxial weave, which consists of three different fibres, each with its own profile and colour. Choose from Spice, Pepper and Atlantic colourways. Visit Canetime.com.
