Mediterranean garden furniture – designs and colors inspired by nature for outdoors

The outdoor space can be a natural extension of the indoor space with a special focus on the relationship with nature through Mediterranean garden furniture. In recent times this trend has developed into a real philosophy of life. This regards life in the open air as fundamental to human wellbeing. The Italian furniture manufacturer Ethimo also adopts this concept in its production. This is a young designer brand with a presence in over 70 countries. In just a few years, the company has developed a strong identity with comprehensive and diversified offers for residential, hospitality and business premises.

Mediterranean garden furniture close to nature

The intense colors of nature and the power of Mediterranean landscapes have played the main role in the inspiration for these collections. In addition, this property and the natural location in the open air determine the choice of high-quality materials. These maintain their efficiency over time despite the weather. In the first 10 years of its activity, Ethimo enjoyed experimenting with different aesthetic codes and collaborated with international designers such as Luca Nichetto, Christophe Pillet, Patrick Norguet, Matteo Thun, Antonio Rodriguez and Paola Navone.

The design called Esedra, designed by Luca Nichetto, is pure creativity in handling material. The name also evokes a perfect balance between enveloping shapes and materials. These convey new tactile and visual perceptions. Designs that suggest an atmosphere of relaxation and well-being result from the union of aluminum and teak in the garden furniture. The designers created the synthetic fibers using a special technology. Accordingly, they reproduce the handmade and warm sensations of natural, woven fibers.

The Grand Life collection, designed by Christophe Pillet, embodies its meaning in its own name. The design conjures up images of places of timeless beauty, fascinating and relaxed atmosphere and panoramas that evoke moods of serenity, and outdoor areas that welcome furniture with a restrained and warm style.

The Knit design was born in 2014 from the partnership with Patrick Norguet and is a true icon as an example of such Mediterranean garden furniture. Every other season the designers enrich their collection with new elements. For 2020, a comfortable sofa and armchair will star in a new episode of an increasingly complete and constantly evolving lounge collection.

The models are constantly changing in terms of volumes, surfaces and materials. The designers therefore always examine distinctive features in order to maintain the charm of their knitted furniture. In fact, the two new creations reflect the collection’s characteristic heritage. In addition, this is defined by the union of natural or machined teak with the woven rope structure of the seat.

Allaperto Mountain is another lounge collection by Matteo Thun and Antonio Rodriguez. These are the first designs that were developed to enhance outdoor areas in a mountain context. Natural and processed teak, together with innovative fabrics and covers as well as original furnishings, create Mediterranean garden furniture and accessories that can withstand harsher temperatures and retain their natural beauty over time.

Swing is the collection designed by Patrick Norguet in 2015 and presented in the 2016 catalog. The team enriches this season after season with new elements that make it more and more complete. The designer brings the furniture to life through an architectural play of repeated teak elements.

The whole thing is also attached to an aluminum structure. This creates comfortable seats that are perfect for outdoors and complement living areas with personality. Dining tables and chairs, stools, lounge and club chairs, sofas (modular or not), rocking chairs and coffee tables. So this is a complete collection that satisfies every need for comfort in moments of relaxation and conviviality and creates new experiences in the wellness area.

Last but not least, Rafael is another collection created from the vision of Paola Navone. The designer has thus improved the materiality of wood and the craftsmanship in production. The project is based on the designer’s ability to interpret and reinvent the aesthetic and formal inspiration of distant cultures and landscapes.

She perfectly combined this with Ethimo’s passion to create an ideal and harmonious relationship between furniture and the surrounding context. Rafael is a collection of lounge furniture that evokes an essence of exotic places, suggests feelings of well-being and generates new experiences in life in the open air.
