Summer is here

Is summer here? It should be, officially, but still I am not so sure.
In any case better be ready to enjoy the sunshine and the garden, possibly reading a great book and drinking a healthy vegetables and fruits juice cocktail while resting on one of these irresistible pieces. I have seen them in an installation of Paola Lenti's latest collection, in Milan, during the Design Week, and later it was also presented during the ICCF in New York in May.

Mix raspberry and strawberry juice with ice...sit down and relax.

Have a fresh and refreshing drink with plenty of mint...

or perhaps cucumber juice on ice...

Sip a milk shake with a hint of vanilla while sitting comfortably on these stunning chairs...

A superb selection of colors and textures for the outdoor furniture.

Paola Lenti has chosen Palazzo delle Stelline to show her latest collection. It is a gorgeous building in the center of Milan, with a large cloister, since it was a monastery, and now home for international meetings, installations, educational workshops, cultural events. The building is just across the stunning church of Santa Maria delle Grazie, where The Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci can be admired.
It was a special treat to see her beautiful outdoor furniture in such a wonderful context.

Love your drink suggestion- perfectly coordinated.

The outdoor furniture is just so...Milano. Clean, colorful, innovative. I would love to see actual installations.

I'm thirsty now!! How fun to see such beauties in person. What are those "prune" like shaped things?

Paola Lenti's fabrics are amazing, especially the ones for outdoor, as the offer something a little different from the rest. Thanks for the reminder.

Have not been to Milan in a long time. But you made me want to go very soon. :)

I'm off to look at that apt. on your sidebar...but about this post first :)

I did see some of these peices at the ICFF, and loved the forms. Seeing them in Italy would be much nicer :)

ARe you in Vancouver now?
