Item of the day: Malibu Poolside Ottoman

Outdoor furniture is on everyone’s minds with the change of season, and what better way to capture the holiday mood than with trademark summer-ready furniture pieces? Navy and white stripes say it all and instantly breathe life into your decor. We spotted this chic poolside ottoman from Malibu, which appropriately channels the nautical theme. It doubles up as a comfy seat or footrest, with two handles on the side so that you can easily reposition it when the mood strikes. If you haven’t already had the pleasure of visiting Malibu’s decadent space at the Cape Quarter, do yourself a favour and pop into their Cape Town-based store. The brand is the creative handiwork of mother and daughter duo, Leigh Samson and Danela Conti. Formerly known as Malibu Interiors, the project was established in 1992 as an interior decorating firm, with clients spanning from the UK to Paris. Today, they focus on both decorating and their distinct homeware range. Inspired by resort living and her grandmother’s 70s vintage Miami jewellery, Danela describes the brand as 'easy living with luxury as a focus'. We think the poolside ottoman (R4 100 excluding VAT) is just what you need for relaxed poolside gatherings!
