Contemporary outdoor furniture.
Our contemporary outdoor furniture collection of tables, chairs, outdoor sofas and chaises is among the best available anywhere. We are especially proud to feature as part of the Minotti outdoor furniture series, the Alison Iroko contemporary outdoor furniture collection made in Italy as an outdoor seating solution for those demanding the very best in quality and design. A seating system designed in 2006 by Rodolfo Dordoni and now updated in waterproof Iroko wood introduced at a recent Milan International Design Fair, this is likely the finest contemporary outdoor furniture in terms of design and quality that we have seen. The Alison Iroko contemporary outdoor furniture series showcases a sleek, squared off line designed in warm Iroko heartwood, and offered in many sizes and options. The square shape of the seat, back, and armrest cushions match the clean lines of the frame but are generously padded. The solid wood frames rest on stainless steel tips set into slots in the wood. This technique eliminates direct contact between the wood and the outdoor surface as a safeguard against moisture.
Iroko is an African wood known for its strength and, thanks to its waterproof qualities, it is often used in nautical applications. Treatment of Iroko with a highly UV protective varnish is a Minotti extra, added to improve the wood’s inherent characteristics, while leaving its natural appearance unaltered. A new, exclusive collection of exterior fabrics for this contemporary outdoor furniture series is available in sophisticated colors and textures, and lend a crisp lively note to the sofas. These waterproof materials are tested for their durability in outdoor elements. Rain covers are also available for each element. These are just a few of the many outstanding contemporary outdoor furniture items in our repertory. In addition to the celebrated Minotti collection of Italy we also carry the highly coveted contemporary outdoor furniture series from Driade.
