The Kalife collection designed by Éric Carrère will allow you to create your very own luxurious outdoor living room. This collection includes two modular settees, an armchair and an ottoman; plus, an oversized stand-alone loveseat.
Each piece is hand-crafted starting with a solid foundation of laquered aluminum and coated with a neutral mat grey color. The frame is 100% weather-resistant guarenteed. Kalife's back and arm rests are elegantly woven with braided polyester for origionality and comfort. This material resists sun, water, sea fog, freezing as well as chemical agents.
The two settees, armchair and loveseat include decorative cushions that come in four colors to maximize your personal style and relaxation. Each cushion is made with Sunbrella acrylic fiber that is durable and easy to care for. If you choose, you can always add more cushions for extra comfort.
Be as creative as you want to be, mixing and matching each piece into a unique configuration.

Lacquered aluminium. Stainless chromed aluminium structures, lacquered and baked at (392°F). The epoxy powder coating is uniformly applied (80 micron-layer) by means of an electrostatic spray. In this process, the micro-balls of powder are attracted to the entire surface of the metal, and become perfectly fixed to the aluminium. While in the oven, they melt and harden from the heat, forming an even, and ultra-resistance layer of lacquer.
The lacquered finish by Sifas is either smooth and shiny, or structured-granite look. They are weather-resistant guaranteed. The process is tested during production to verify the adhesion of the lacquer on the metal using the cross-cut test, which is a method used in the car industry (ISO standard 2409).*

Lacquered Aluminum. Pre-treatment that prepares the metal for a perfect powder-coated finish that is then baked on to ensure maximum resistance to the elements.
Aluminum Care. Aluminium is lightweight and for this reason, we have included it in our range. The aluminium we use is 'Virgin Aluminum' meaning it is not reclaimed from scrap, making it stronger and longer lasting. We powder-coat the aluminium to prevent oxidation and ensure it gives long service.
