You may recall the plastic white patio furniture of our youth - they may have been cheap, but they certainly weren't built to last. New designers have taken our love for lounging outdoors more seriously, building weather-resistant pieces that are built to last. "Love, protect and respect nature - and live surrounded by it" is the basis of design for the French-based furniture makers at Fermob. Their sustainably produced line of vibrant outdoor seating has us yearning for a bright summer day. Check out their latest collection, made from lightweight recycled and recyclable metal that is crafted to last a lifetime.
If you’ve visited New York recently, you may recognize Fermob from their signature red bistro chairs which add color and respite to many of the city’s parks. Made completely from recycled and recyclable metal, this seating trend requires little upkeep and is made to last generations. We recently discovered several more Fermob designs at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF).
Fermob’s sustainable style is highly regulated with a strict sustainable production process, which checks everything from the raw materials, welds, paintwork, and assembly. Bright pops of color coat their tables, chairs, and benches with solvent-free and UV-proof paint that withstand the test of time. Their specialty outdoor fabrics and recycled canvas covers are both mold-resistant and UV-resistant, also chosen to last years without wear and tear.
The company’s long lasting collection is a feast for the eyes, adding contemporary style to any outdoor environment. From woven lounge chairs and playful rocking seats, to dining sets and garden benches, there’s something for everyone.
