The Beguiling Allure of Suspended Seating by Paola Lenti

Suspended seating such as swings, hammocks, and rockers designed for the outdoors, but equally as alluring for indoors: Paola Lenti’s signature hanging chairs are part of a collection designed for gardens and terraces that are also making their way into interior spaces for a fresh slant on playful design.

Paola Lenti Outside In

Made of Rope, the technical yarn that has revolutionized the company’s history thanks to its performance characteristics, Paola Lentis chairs stand out for their contemporary design, handcrafted workmanship and exclusive colors, features that make them suitable for matching indoor environments as well.

A system of stainless steel snap hooks in fact allows them to be attached to the ceiling or beams of a living room; while in the outdoor version they can be attached to a linear support structure, also in steel, matching the shades of the seats.

An Array of Suspended Seating

Manually woven structures, for example of the Adagio swing and Orbitry hanging chair, are made comfortable by sitting and back support cushions in Paola Lenti’s outdoor upholstery fabrics such as Brio, Luz, Rope T, Wara, and Thea, making them true statement pieces.

Wabi and Swing, on the other hand, are reminiscent of the rocking chairs of yesteryear, revisited with noble materials such as ash or sassafras wood and also upholstered with the technical fabrics of the outdoor collections, resistant to water and ultraviolet rays.

Shibui, a bamboo platform that is part of the Eres collection, designed with 100 percent natural materials and coverings, deserves a separate mention.

Shibui possesses the grace of oriental furniture and seems designed for meditation and reading. Simply lie back on a cool, linen- or hemp-covered mat like Trapuntino, or handwoven with Chain, like Plump, available in a wide range of colors – and then let yourself gently rock.

Farniente, meanwhile, is a hammock that inspires relaxation at first glance, made entirely of woven Trame fabric in Rope yarn, with Chain Outdoor tubular knit trimmings in colors that match the fabric.
