Incredible, iconic… these popular patio furniture pieces made by Vittorio Bonacina will never age. Still fresh-faced after up to sixty years, this is truly the best of Italian patio furniture. The twisted weave of the woven cane, Margherita Chair (left) was designed by Franco Albini in 1950. Its ‘arts and crafts’ revival theme remains popular today. The Eureka hanging chair is also a fantastic option, in manila and cane from India with a leather strap to suspend the chair from. It’s an icon of design from 1957, foreshadowing the minimalist movement. The Primavera Chair by Franca Helg came later, in 1967. This range is most notable for its stunning lacquer colors and flowing forms. The Orlando sofa is already a popular item, being launched in 2008 to great success. Designed by Stefano Gaggero, the upright, high-backed structure is offered with comfortable cushions. Last but not least are two winning designs by Tomoko Mizu, the Orbita lamps and Taiko poufs. Reflecting a sense of Eastern simplicity, these popular patio furniture designs will complement your outdoor decor now, and into the future. From Vittorio Bonacina.
