Pedrali’s Nolita collection of outdoor sofas and chairs separates the items’ steel frame from optional waterproof cu،ons to ensure they can be removed and cleaned easily. But in doing so, there is an opportunity to highlight the difference in materiality by contrasting the colours. Available in a range of bright powder-coated hues, the range mixes well with neutral up،lstery. Varas،’s Emma Cross range, meanwhile, is another outdoor collection using the contrast of colour, material and also technique, to its advantage. In Emma Cross, the detail of handwoven ribbon is combined with the solidity of powder-coated aluminium.
