Outdoor areas including terraces, al fresco restaurants, pool side areas and gardens demand a variety of outdoor furniture solutions that combine style and durability:
A chair without legs, the Fedro is ergonomic in design and balances on two narrow skids, allowing you to rock back and forth as you please, using your legs and feet to control the movement. Conceived by Milanese designer Lorenza Bozzoli, the Fedro chair was inspired by and named after her son, who would balance in front of the TV on the seat of an old chair, its legs removed, while playing video games. Lightweight, portable, stackable and comfortable, Fedro is ideal for lounging around the house, tanning by the pool, in the grass, or on the beach.

SUN AND SHADES
Key West is a new range of elegant outdoor furniture designed by Sun and Shades. The collection is made of high quality materials and designed especially for the GCC market to withstand the extreme climate of the region. Modern lines and a variety of colours make this collection easily adaptable to any outdoor space. The upholstered furniture, solid and comfortable while sitting or lying, has another practical advantage — high quality foam and fabric for outdoor use provides extra comfort and minimises the use of additional cushions. This in turn reduces the initial head cost, and makes this line of furniture affordable and a good investment.
