It is no surprise that outdoor furniture has become a popular trend largely driven by pandemic-driven lock-down measures across the world. More people are spending time outdoors through activities, picnics, and trail hiking. With businesses pivoting to adjust to the new normal, demand for outdoor furniture in restaurants, cafes, and homes is on the rise!
New living or experience spaces are being designed to ensure well-being, comfort, and escape.
Pedrali’s 2021 Outdoor Furniture Series responds to these trends with refined, high-quality products which display efficiency, functionality, and durability. The company’s furniture products are designed to be easy to maintain, clean, and sanitize with environment-friendly detergents.
Pedrali’s outdoor collections are designed to be light so that they are easily moved and stackable. The intent is functional. Stacking saves space and a day of lounging and relaxation should not be a burdened experience with storage at the end of a sunny day.
Pedrali’s functional insight extends beyond weight. Its outdoor furniture collections are made of a mix of materials for weather-resistant protection, whether it’s the sun or salty air if your home is near beach shorelines.
The Rail Sun Lounger Series is a testament to simplicity and modern styling. The lines are clean, the frame is slim, with powder-coated aluminum. The oblique design is complemented by four-angled legs made of stainless steel.
The seat and backrest are made of Textilene (Textoline) which is a synthetic fabric from the Twitchell Corporation. This synthetic fabric uses high-strength polyesters with PVC compounds. This is commonly used for outdoor and garden furniture because it is easy to clean, comfortable, and UV resistant.
Comfortable cushions are water-proofed, UV-resistant, and made with dry-feel foam.
Pedrali’s Remind series are small versatile, functional chairs. It’s designer? Eugeni Quitllet. Polypropylene material is used to ensure outdoor use and suitability. The smooth, shaped lines provide a sense of order that is lightweight but durable.
These chairs can be used in outdoor backyard common areas, balconies, or terraces. An intimate hotel in Santorini with a sunset view on Caldera embraces the design. The hotel? Maregio Suites by Fotinos. We know. We’re all dreaming along with you.
Our team is progressive and environmentally conscious. We support the circular economy and net-zero energy homes, building design, and architecture where possible. We were pleasantly surprised to learn that Padreli also creates a special version of the Remind chair. This version is made entirely from recycled materials: 50% from plastic industrial waste material and 50% from plastic materials from post-consumer waste. That’s green thinking! Bravo!
The Nolita outdoor collection series is a beautiful reflection of styled furniture common to Mediterranean and Riviera escapes. Inspiration comes from CMP Design to give the proper elegance and freshness that is most deserved!
Nolita sightings have been found at the Gattopardo Hotel where you can drown your tired eyes on the turquoise waters of Lampedusa. Other sightings include Greek hot spots like the Natu Restaurant in Kifisia or the Goulandris Museum of Natural History in Athens.
The Tribeca outdoor collection is simple, refined, with a summer-like feel in pink, terracotta, and white colors. This collection has been spotted at the Vaeshartelt Castle in Maastricht, Netherlands. Feeling a bit Spanish? You’ll find the Tribeca series in red, blue, and grey colored chairs nestled on a Madrid-style terrace at the Room Mate Macarena Hotel. Your oasis on top of Madrid’s Gran Via.
Pedrali tables express an outdoor friendliness that accommodates comfort in open-air spaces. These tables are easy to clean due to their advanced materials but furnish the outdoors with simplicity, functionality and elegance. Available in a range of colors and neutral tones, tops can also have modified materials for effect; such as stone to emulate natural settings.

To spruce up the home as a luxury oasis, one must consider nightlife and lighting as a discerning feature. Predali’s Giravolta Lamps help light the night with wireless, rechargeable lamp infrastructure. Its contemporary design by Basaglia Rota Nodari.
Giravolta lamps clearly express a contemporary design. Made with plastic material, two elements include the base and LED diffuser which has 360-degree rotation for light direction. The arc is made with extruded aluminum (a fancy favorite for Jony Ive, former VP, Industrial Design at Apple) to surround two discs and create a handle. An incorporated LED board, lithium battery, micro-USB for charging, and a power button close out the key design elements. The base has a magnet that ensures fixed, stable lighting on metal surfaces or walls.

We tend to show preference and bias to companies that exhibit core values that they can deliver on.
De Gaspé, a Montreal-based company, delivers on a strong mandate to take care of your environment which includes our planet, your home, our workplace, and where you socialize.
Other core principles include simplicity, quality, and friendliness.
Why shouldn’t we embrace simple products? The world is already a noisy one. Simplicity ensures ease of use, understanding, and repair for busy lives. Simple designs should last and support sustainable consumption.
The modern industrialized world and those in the West have seduced us with an “Everyday Low Prices” mantra without realizing this, in turn, has created more garbage – more crap. A disposable economy that is terrible for the environment and humanity! Products should be designed to last a long-time, if not a lifetime. Let’s stop wasting and start creating sustainable products.
In today’s business culture, user-friendliness and customer-driven are far too often words, not actions. Companies must strive to ensure cultural business relationships are reinforced between staff, customers, and suppliers. This culture must also be applied in terms of simplicity and user experience with digital platforms like an e-commerce website. De Gaspé strives to be this company in furniture manufacturing for an industry that has been a mass-produced, lifeless experience for too long. Impressive.
Most impressive is their partnership with Eden Reforestation Projects. As a carbon-neutral company, it achieves this goal by planting 100 trees for every furniture item sold through its website. Parfait!

I am a swashbuckling, mind-reading, techno-czar. Ok, leave out everything except “techno”. That might suggest the music genre but it’s really my technology background. My last studies were in Syracuse, and it was all about advertising. However, my career has been as diverse as the charcuterie board. We’re talking dot-com (actually, dot-bomb, lol), digital advertising before people understood “online”, payments before people understood what a “digital wallet” was, and online/digital games. This expanded to mobile marketing, mobile swiss cheese (edit: scratch that), and more. I ran operations for a digital financial portal, and found ways to sell things before they were mainstream. Today, I am Editor in Chief of one of the interwebs’ fastest growing home and architecture sites. For the big picture, visit our About Us page.
