Paola Lenti setting new standard in eco-luxury

Founded in 1994, Paola Lenti is renowned worldwide for the innovative twist it has given to design products and for its unmistakable interpretation of colour. During three decades the company has created a collection of exclusive fabrics and technical materials, eco-friendly and available in hundreds of shades. Paola Lenti indoor and outdoor collections and complements for the architecture are displayed in the most important international showrooms. A deep and comfortable seat, linear and essential back and armrest, a wide range of soft pillows: these are the characteristics of Harbour, the series designed by Francesco Rota for Paola Lenti dedicated to refined, elegant outdoor spaces.

The series, composed of armchair, sectional elements, chaise longue and pouf, stands out for the well-designed details that make it versatile and suited for different environments. Harbour, indeed, fits with discretion and elegance both in residential contexts, such as gardens and terraces, and in contract projects intended for hospitality.

The technological content of the materials used is the result of the research that the Company has always carried out to guarantee high structural performances, yet never compromising on the quality of the product and the intensity of its colour palette. A modern and responsible design philosophy, that of Paola Lenti, blending functionality, comfort, color and respect for the environment.

In details, the back- and armrest cover is made of Maris, a waterproof and easy to maintain fabric woven with Twiggy, Paola Lenti’s signature yarn introduced in 2020. Therefore, the technical characteristics of Maris are the same of the yarn it is produced with, both in term of performance and environmental sustainability: certified UNI EN ISO 14021, hence entirely recyclable, Twiggy is very resistant to dirt and abrasion and the intensity of the colors persists also under the sun’s rays. Maris numerous colors are coordinated with those of the other fabrics, materials and varnishes in the collection, thus allowing practically unlimited chromatic combinations.

The padding of the seat, back and loose cushions is made of Aerelle® blue, a polyester fiber obtained from the recycling of disposable plastic collected before it reaches rivers and oceans: a traceable and certified material that Paola Lenti has decided to use to make all the upholstered furniture in her collections, both indoors and outdoors, eco-sustainable. Thanks to these materials - designed to withstand the stress of the external environment, consistent with the modern principles of the circular economy and featured in the exclusive Paola Lenti colors – Harbour requires little maintenance and is long-lasting, hence reducing also its environmental impact.
