The Italian designer Paola Navone created the Rafael outdoor furniture collection for Italian brand Ethimo. The range includes lounge chairs, daybeds, sun loungers, and coffee tables, most based on irregularly shaped frames, with the slats arranged as backrests.

The pieces designed for Ethimo are crafted from distressed natural teak, with marble and lava stone tabletops. Rafaelis the collection of lounge furnishings that aspires to be the emblem of an exotic idea springing from contemporary imagination, capturing the essence of the world’s most fascinating locations to arouse extraordinary sensations of wellbeing and generate new outdoor living experiences.
Created to bring alive the most exclusive outdoor spaces with their own unique personality, this collection ‘absorbs’ the changing, multi-faceted shapes of nature and preserves its vital influences, which shine through in the strength of its lines and the rough beauty of its materials. Design, materials, and decoration in this way generate furnishings with an eclectic soul.
Rafaelis a modular system comprising a lounge seating, day beds, and coffee tables. All the elements can be used together or stand-alone. The alternating slats that make up the backrests bring alive the unusual original hexagonal profiles of the frame, in the new distressed natural teak finish.
The exoticism of the Paola Navone and Ethimo‘s outdoor collection brings alive any outdoor space.
