Rope, yarn, string…of fiber, textile, plastic…There’s as many variations of seating as designers ideas. I appreciate when it’s possible to use a piece of furniture outdoors as well as indoors. Fortunately the trend 2017 is to relaunch simplistic, handsome and comfortable chairs in contemporary colours and materials. Good design never gets boring, but sometimes a new take on the visual and tactile make wonders!
