Exhibiting for the first time at Salone del Mobile, stone company FranchiUmbertoMarmi will be displaying two outdoor furniture collections that celebrate marble. Carrara marble is known as a sophisticated material, oftentimes used in high-end applications, but the Carrara, Italy based brand utilizes it in warm, approachable ways. Their two collections, Bettogli and Matisse, feature marble structures in contemporary silhouettes that could even work for interior situations.
The Bettogli collection includes a sofa, armchair, and chaise lounge featuring perpendicular lines for a relaxed, casual feel. The marble is paired with teak and aluminum for added contrast and warmth.
The Matisse collection will include a sofa, armchair, and bed with slanted arms and cushions that wrap around to embrace.
