The careful choice of materials completes the work, demonstrating the brand's ability to exploit the potential and quality of raw materials.
From the very beginning of the foundation of the company, in addition to constant experimentation with materials, there is a careful study of the yarns, according to their quality and performance and the attempt to make the most of the features that make them unique and original. Color is also a fundamental element, which reveals the brand's innate ability to choose the most unusual shades for seats, rugs and upholstery, sofas, armchairs, poufs.
Living the style
For the collections of carpets and indoor fabrics, Paola Lenti chooses yarns such as wool and cottons in coordinated colors that combined with the woods and stones used for the outdoors create new and enveloping patterns. Consistent with the philosophy of the product and the essential and elegant design of the brand, even the outdoor furniture is covered with innovative and refined materials, such as Rope and Aquatech yarns that guarantee the highest quality and resistance to bad weather and sunlight.
The tops of the outdoor furniture are made with stones and woods carefully chosen according to their properties and aesthetic qualities, which are combined with metals with high technical performance, thus creating a combination of sober elegance and maximum resistance. The company also uses natural fibers to create essential, contemporary and timeless indoor and outdoor products.
In Paola Lenti's productions, carpets are pieces of furniture that redefine the space and adds a quid of style and character to the rooms. For the interiors, the rugs are made of felt, a natural material with important technical performance, embellished with colored wool tails. For the exteriors mats and carpets are made with water-repellent materials, worked on a loom or woven, which evoke natural landscapes with a strong visual and aesthetic impact.
From the Lido series, the practical and stackable chair, armchair and bistro table are made with the new and exclusive Diade, a technical material for outdoor created by Paola Lenti that is light, resistant and recyclable.
