Looking for tables, chairs and outdoor furniture. Beautiful to look at but also functional, colorful and resistant. Furnishing the outdoor spaces of the house requires the same care that is used for the living or the sleeping area, with special attention to the weather conditions in which our furniture will “live”. This is where outdoor metal comes into play: indestructible and versatile, it is a perfect material to create furnishing accessories with essential and light lines, with a modern and never boring design.
The inspiration comes from the modern furnishings of the 1950s, but also from the more contemporary trend of the industrial chic style, of which metal is the absolute protagonist.
Well, it’s easy to say metal, but what material are we talking about exactly? In the Bontempi Casa catalog, the outdoor metal furniture is in lacquered steel. Steel is an alloy of iron and carbon, resistant and stable over time, to which a double treatment is applied to ensure its long life. The first step is the painting by cataphoresis, characterized by the uniform deposition of an epoxy or acrylic resin on the surface of the object, this ensures a high protection from chemical agents and other external factors, a remarkable resistance to corrosion and rust. The second is a further painting of the piece with an external powder paint and subsequent baking in the oven.
Which are the ideal metal furniture for furnishing a veranda, a terrace or a garden? These ones.
A seat capable of combining the solidity of the metal structure with an incredible aesthetic lightness, given by simple and essential lines, that are soft and enveloping. With its strong personality, the Ines chair in lacquered steel with armrests and cushion is perfect combined with a minimalist table, to be set following a single mantra: less is more.
Light and refined geometries taken from the seat and backrest characterize the Freak chair with lacquered steel structure, available in white or in different shades of gray, whose look is completed by combining the upholstered seat cushion with matching outdoor fabric matchy or contrasting. The Vincent coffee table, whose lacquered steel structure recalls its sinuous lines, is the perfect combination to create a relaxation area where you can have coffee, browse through a magazine or simply enjoy the shade.
To create an area dedicated to lunches with friends, perhaps sheltered by a pergola or an open veranda, the ideal combination for the Freak chair is the Sander outdoor table. Its slender and essential metal structure is available in the same range of colors as the chairs, and creates a beautiful contrast between this industrial-inspired material and its scratch-resistant glass and crystal top.
Take a round top and “put it on” over legs that resemble the shape of an origami: it is the Tao coffee table, available in two different sizes and in different colors. One next to the other, thanks to the solidity of the lacquered steel structure, they create a perfect surface for an informal aperitif with friends or for refreshing drinks on summer afternoons.
Top, magazine compartment, seat: Pattern is all this thanks to its inverted pyramid structure in worked steel, with a perforated pattern on all sides that gives a fresh feeling of lightness to its aesthetics. Genial in its simplicity, it adapts easily to any type of environment – external but also internal – and to different styles of furniture.
