El Canasta

Spanish designer Patricia Urquiola has recently designed a range of beautiful woven outdoor furniture in cool neutrals perfect for that summer evening with a BBQ, cocktails and oodles of good friends. I know for most of us that's still a few months away - but it's just a little prompt to get you thinking about the indoor bicycle, leg wax and fake tan :-)

If you're interested in this Canasta collection, Patricia has also designed sun lounges and tables along similar lines. Canasta (Spanish for basket) can be found in B&B Italia’s Outdoor Collection. The cushions are made from weather fast fabrics to minimise fading.
See and read more about Patricia's work here.

I like the low back single seater the best.
I really like those pillows though. Any ideas on where the pattern came from?
