Grace Chair and Footstool By Paolo Grasselli, 2016

Grace Garden Furniture

Summer is coming and my teeny-tiny garden is green and growing furiously.

I’m optimisticly imagining myself indulging in chocolates and chilled champagne, under shade (skin cancer girl here), enjoying the warmth and sun amidst the giant banana plants and palm trees that I, with my trusty gardener’s, Peter and Dan, have somehow managed to grow on this minute plot of land (actually, it’s all them really. I merely point at pictures and say, ‘I want.’ Then, I make happy sounds at whatever happens thereafter).

Anyway, getting to the point, wouldn’t these beautiful items of Grace garden furniture hugely enhance my dream vision?

From the Grace collection by Paolo Grasselli for Sabia Italia, I simply love the description on their website:

Our new outdoor collection by Paolo Grasselli is an irresistibly dainty decorative range. Geometric patterns materialise and metal lines trace circles through the air in an artistic élan that is much more deliberate than first seems. Metal rings of differing sizes breathe life into a seating collection and accessories where practicality and beauty become one. Empty circles clasp cushioned spheres in a cluster of coloured and transparent bubbles, settling down magnificently into a tub chair, a loveseat, a low table and a pouf. Nascent forms spring up where the concept of a chair has been torn apart and made whole again; yet this time, the distinction between space and matter and object and surrounds has become blurred. Depending on the arrangement of the rings and the positioning of the cushions, different harmonious patterns can be created – the end result will always be strikingly decorative and surprisingly comfortable.

Dainty. Circles through the air. Cushioned spheres. Clusters of bubbles. Harmonious. Comfortable. I’m all in … I think.

I’ve even found it for sale on the GoModern website: Grace Armchair £1,700, Grace Sofa £2,790 though I’m sure it’s available elsewhere too.

My only reservation – other than the £££ of course – is whether my Grace-like items will be able to survive the upcoming devastation of my garden space when my house project gets underway. I’m not seeing ‘extremely robust and resistant to all building works‘ anywhere in the narrative above. Hmm…
