Fashion Forward: Color-Block Outdoor Chairs from Marni

Sarah Lonsdale May 21, 2012

Marni, the forward-thinking Italian fashion label (and a favorite of ours), brings graphic color blocks to a humble Colombian chair.

Founded by Consuelo Castiglioni and her husband, Gianni, in 1994, Marni is known for its graphic prints and bold colors juxtaposed in a refreshingly modern way. Castiglioni has ventured into the interiors world before (she designed a line of vibrantly pattered rugs for British firm The Rug Company), so we were thrilled to see her make another foray into home design with the debut of a limited collection of 100 chairs at Salone del Mobile this past April. Needless to say, the metal-framed chairs, woven with multicolored PVC cord, sold out immediately, but admirers take note: word has it that another collection is scheduled for Art Basel. Stay tuned.

To see more, go to Marni.
