The SEALINE woven modular deep seating collection derives its eco-friendly philosophy and design inspiration from the world of sailing. Visually, the billowy expanses of soft cushions resemble sails unfurled to catch the wind, and grate-style teak tops for the coffee table and bench are evocative of the wooden battens which keep the sails taut.
The romance of seafaring is rounded out by the solid teak undercarriage which pays homage to the decking and hull of a vintage wooden ship. "It's not just an aesthetic choice," either, explains designer Jean-Marie Massaud. The efficiency, elegance, and environmental stewardship of the sailing ethos are expressed in the "quality and sustainability" of the collection's construction materials themselves.
In addition to the use of sustainably sourced teak wood, the woven wicker siding of the sofas and sectional components is comprised of thick interlacing strands of 100% natural polyethylene EcoCycle fiber synthesized from renewable sugarcane ethanol.
The modular nature of the collection lends itself to your choice of seating islands or archipelago-style formations. The coffee tables with stone or marble finish tops are the same height as the seating elements which allow for inset table components that space out the seating and provide surfaces for casual dining and item storage. SEALINE is assembled using top-quality die-cast aluminum connectors for easy maintenance and exceptional durability.
Double-stitched Category A NATURA Acrylic fabric seat and back cushions are included for all seating elements. NATURA has a cotton-like touch and carries color beautifully. The cushions are constructed out of water-repellent yarns, wrapped around a quick-drying foam core for long-lasting outdoor durability.
