With its layers of richly-grained teak, and rope back panels delicately strung like a lute, Saranac has a warm earthy resonance and inviting transparency. The collection hints at mid-century influence, but features lines and angles that are distinctly modern. This blend of historical influence and contemporary sensibilities demonstrate consummate sophistication in a timeless outdoor collection.
When imagining Saranac, Mark Gabbertas visualized a design that combined exceptional comfort with an enduring aesthetic. Turned contoured teak elements suggest a refined indoor feel, but the sustainably sourced materials, including teak, synthetic rope fiber, and the luxurious cushions, are all designed to stand up to any outdoor weather conditions, ensuring this lounge collection, which includes some sofas, will retain its natural charm for many years to come.
Saranac is the spiritual successor to Gloster's iconic teak collections Bay and Loop, but establishes a unique identity with extra flourishes, including rounded arms and rope strung around the back frame.
For a rustic teak complementary side table to complete your lounge, consider Raw from Gloster.
