The Shadowy Chairs look more like the fictional furnishings from a children's book than actual pieces of furniture; nevertheless, they do exist as real objects that can infuse your patio with whimsicality.
Designed by Tord Boontje for Moroso of Italy, the collection includes variations of wingback chairs, armchairs, loungers, sunbeds and footstools. No object looks quite like anything else you've seen, since its form has been imaginatively exaggerated into fantastical curves and curls and enhanced with polychromatic plastic textiles. The objects are unavoidably stimulating to the eyes.
Practically speaking, the Shadowy Chairs are made sturdily of steel with weather-resistant material, able to withstand the elements in your backyard. You'll find that the swirling tops of some of the seats are particularly convenient at offering shade on sunny days.
