The sophisticated elegance that distinguishes the interior decor designs in the 2014 collection is inherent to the outdoor series and highlights the continuity and consistency of the brand's own style. An exclusive new finish- a rich shade of brown- lends and even more sophisticated edge to the Alison "Dark Brown" outdoor seating system and facilitates the creation of elegant pairings with the new fabrics in the art life-scape 02 collection, bringing a stylishly modern note to the outdoor series, as well.
The Alison "Dark Brown" outdoor sofa is raised off the ground on 3,5 cm high anodised aluminium blocks, groove-mounted and stained the same colour as the wood, to prevent direct contact with the paving and thus protect the frame from moisture. In the new seating system, even the cushions have been redesigned to convey the air of casual elegance that sets Alison "Dark Brown" outdoor apart. Specifically, the cushions have been made softer, thanks to the use of new inserts in high resilience variable- density polyurethane foam, sheathed in Eco-friendly water-repellent fibre.
It is highly recommended to use the rain covers – not only during the winter months to maintain its perfect condition.
