SUMMER luxury for the home is all about objects that enhance relaxation and entertainment, says Emily La Merra of high-end furniture store Mobilia.
From outdoor desirables to glamorous entertaining must-haves, La Merra shares her top picks from the Claremont showroom guaranteed to add a special touch to your abode this season.
1. Kettal Sunshades
Summer means more outdoor time and a shady spot has to be your best friend this time of year.
Kettal Sunshades are not only beautifully coloured, they feature high durable fittings as well as anti-corrosive aluminium framework that last long-term in the salt air.
2. Block and Line Rugs
Your al fresco area has suddenly become the focal point and an outdoor rug will make it feel even more inviting.
We love the Block and Line Rugs designed by the colour gurus from Doshi Levien Studio.
They are woven with just the right amount of texture to provide a tactile yet soft surface for bare feet.
3. Prince Aha stool by Philippe Starck
Longer days mean having more time to see family and friends, so having extra seating on hand is a great idea.
Ideally you want something that can double as a side table in the cooler months and is suitable for outdoor use.
The Italian-made Prince Aha stool provides the perfect solution.
4. Trama Carafe
With more chances to entertain, it’s time to bring out your special tableware.
The Trama Carafe is like a little piece of jewellery for your table.
It’s also made of tough polycarbonate so it’s shatter-proof, making it ideal for picnics and boating.
5. Jaime Hayon Tray
It’s BBQ time and we have the item to impress your gusts: the Jaime Hayon Tray.
Its clever design always leaves one hand free to serve the drinks.
6. Wellbeing Hammock
Summer means more ‘me’ time and what better way of spending it than lying in a hammock?
Made of hand-loomed unbleached cotton, the Wellbeing Hammock is naturally beautiful and an item of true understated luxury.
