Adagio Swing

In our October 2012 Indoor/ Outdoor issue we demonstrate how to be the ultimate 'Mr and Mrs Entertainer' by arming yourself with the right outdoor must-haves. From sun beds to slip-slops, we bring you a round-up of some of our favourite items for the season (page 32). Reminiscent of this shoot is the lovely Adagio Swing by Milan-based Italian designer, Paola Lenti. Her work is focused on creating mainly rugs and seating furniture for both the indoors and outdoors. We love her unique approach to design and the way her bright, bold pieces always grab your eye. This swing, with its stainless steel structure, is no exception. Ideal for outdoor living, the seat cushion is made from polyurethane while the hand-woven upholstery is available in either a solid colour or two colours. The safety cords are also colour co-ordinated to match the upholstery weave in shades of cemento, grigio and terracotta. You can also get removable upholstery in the form of a loose cushion for added comfort, which is available in Luz, Rope T and Brio fabrics, especially suited to the outdoors. Wouldn't you just love to add this fun, colourful piece to your own outdoor space? The Adagio Swing retails at R38 204 excluding VAT from The Modern Home Company in Cape Town and 03cubed in Joburg.
