Over the last few months we’ve fallen in love with our terraces and gardens, which have turned into actual living spaces, albeit often less considered (and thought-out). The time has now come to lay claim to them again and to make them into perfect spaces, not just for times of conviviality, but also for those moments of relaxation as close as possible to the scents of plants and the tweeting of birds.
Who said that textiles and cushions could only be used to decorate our interiors and make them cosy? Technology in the textile field is now so advanced that the padded elements of small sofas, armchairs, chairs, pouffes and rockers can be left out in all weathers, boasting a huge range of coverings, which each company reinterprets according to their own brand style.
The Spanish outdoor furnishing brand Calma’s catalogue features locally made products only, for instance, and it has developed a fabric very similar to that used for umbrellas to cover its small Lou easy chair, designed by Inma Bermudez. Underneath this customisable top layer, there is a second, waterproof layer, the underneath part of which has a netted breathable texture, which prevents the inside of the large, padded cushion from getting wet. The cover can, in any case, be very easily removed, thanks to the cunning stratagem of the three rear zips.
