As winter takes its hold across South Africa, the new Cala collection of outdoor furniture – created by Kettal Studio, and available at Marlanteak – has us wishing for warmer climes. With its dramatically curved backrest, the armchair is definitely the showstopper, designed by Doshi Levien and inspired by the iconic Emanuelle Peacock chair. Thanks to their open latticed-rope weave, the chairs feel light and airy – perfect for al fresco summer days.
The Cala range comprises dining chairs, sofas and ottomans, as well as dining and coffee tables. In contrast to the playfulness of the seating pieces, which are fully customisable with a choice of metal coatings, rope colours and fabrics, the tables are monolithic in style and come in a variety of timber and marble options. These chic, versatile designs certainly give ordinary lawn furniture a run for its money, and would look just as good inside as they do outdoors.
