Outdoor / Sofas / Virginia Outdoor Armchair and Ottoman

The Virginia “Outdoor” collection conjures up the widespread desire to spend more time outdoors, enjoying the views – whether landscapes or cityscapes – that convey a sensation of freedom and wellbeing.

The Virginia Outdoor family is a line that is brilliantly balanced between classicism and the modern. Workmanship of the solid iroko wood plays up all the qualities of a living, organic material that is pleasing to the eyes and to the touch. The finish options are: natural iroko or “Dark Brown” stained finish.

The clean lines of the wood structure are complemented by soft back and seat cushions, featuring generous padding and upholstery textiles that lend a tone of sophisticated elegance to the entire collection.

The sofa, armchair and ottoman are all imbued with compact proportions that brilliantly solve design dilemmas around modestly-proportioned terraces or verandas, as well as hospitality environments.

 

Structure: in 33 mm. thick solid, kiln-dried Iroko wood. Worked on a numerically controlled machine, finger joints for the seatback and 45° for the seat, jointed and finished by hand.

The structure is available in a natural or “Dark Brown” stained finish. Both structures are treated with a high UV- and weather-resistant paint with a 35 level gloss finish. Painted metal underframe for the seat for outdoor use with elastic strap webbing in UV-resistant synthetic rubber and polypropylene.

In order to protect the lower part of the seat cushion, an expanded polyurethane mattress with the same cover as the cushions is provided. Mattress cover removable through a zipper.

Cushions: seat and seat back cushion in high resilience polyurethane foam and eco-compatible waterproof fiber. In order to better protect the padding from water and humidity, all the cushions have a waterproof polyester cover. All the accessories – hinges, yarn – are waterproof and therefore suitable for outdoor use.

Covers: completely removable cushion covers.

Legs: rest on aluminum tips inserted in the solid wood with Pewter painted finish and protective rubber glide.

 

COFFEE TABLES: 20 mm. Corian® EC Elegant Gray colored top, flush-set.

N.B.: Since Iroko wood is a natural material, the veins or shades of color may not be perfectly the same; this should not be considered a defect in the material but rather a quality of solid wood. The color of Iroko wood may also change with time.
