Dream of heady days once more with a cane chair to take your mind off matters.
When life, pre-Covid, was all tennis matches and dirty martinis, outdoor furniture was at the fore of every al fresco entertainer’s mind. Add in a pool-boy dalliance and life was but a dream.
But we can hope for a brighter future. One where half-sozzled, mid-arvo amblings around the pool are de rigueur once again. Where losing a Chanel slipper during pre-supper’s sangria session doesn’t result in an inexplicable amount of tears.
When all feels brink-of-despair-ish, Tessuti, Herne Bay’s premium homewares store, offer a pinnable glimmer of hope.
It’s a ‘Paris’ chair designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1925. With Southern Hemisphere nights burgeoning on the verge of temperature rising, allow manau and tohiti rattan thoughts enter your stricken mind, just in time for a Spring purchase.
