The Rafael Outdoor Collection by Ethimo Is Bold + Unusual

Bold. Quirky. Unusual. All words that might describe Ethimo’s Rafael collection of outdoor furniture. The influence that nature had on the design, by Paola Navone, is evident and show-stopping. You can tell simply by looking at each piece how sturdy the brushed teak structures are, while the metal “staples” add another layer of craftsmanship and character. The additional texture and colors of the cushions paired with smooth white marble or stone glazed tables make for a sophisticated pairing that’s sure to catch attention. Who else just got one step closer to being ready for summer?
