Paul Smith, 2023
The EVERYDAY LIFE the collection has been expanded to the world of outdoor furniture, with an offering that bears the same distinctive silhouette and high-performing features of the indoor collection, such as outdoor fabrics and frame in Iroko wood, to elegantly cater to a growing interest in open-air living. The selection has clean lines while it is infused with unexpected details such as the discreet contrast stitching on the cushions, that pays respect to the know-how linked to Paul Smith’s fashion heritage. The backs of the upholstered pieces feature tiny, coloured straps that allude to Paul Smith’s “Signature Stripe.” Moreover, the visible joints are a nod to the Japanese tradition of cabinet making, which the designer champions. The clever use of colour catches the eye and ranges from classic and vibrant hues to earthy tones and show-stopping shades, together with low-impact materials of natural origin, such as hemp, kapok and recycled feathers.
