Teak, crafts and innovation


Invoke memories of slower times and a different pace of life. Riverside, lakeside, seaboard. Bounded with cinematic landscapes, giant redwoods and cavernous skies. Imagine the perfect temperature, a moment in the day when nothing intrudes. Add comfort of an unprecedented level packaged with definitive style and premium materials. Picture this luxury outdoors. Without the constraints of four walls, where instead your limits are the horizon and an ever expanding canopy, pinned with infinite stars. 

Showcasing a solid teak frame with a gentle nod to mid-century influence, Saranac’s distinctly contemporary lines please the eye from all angles allowing the collection to appear equally at home in spaces of varying size. Including a Lounge Chair, Ottoman, 2-Seater and 3-Seater Sofa, Saranac’s apparent simplicity belies a complex character packed with subtle style. Ideally suited to be paired with Sepal occasional tables, Saranac accords the consummate outdoor lounge experience.

London designer Mark Gabbertas spared nothing to ensure Saranac’s sustainably sourced, historically influenced frame incorporated the finest materials and delivered the most sophisticated finish. A woven outdoor rope back in rich Raven colour is strung taught above gently angled and tapered legs. Backs and arms are fully refined with a tactile rounded teak cap. Uniting the collection, the finishing touch of deep fill pillow like cushions are available in a variety of outdoor fabrics delivering a perfect mix of exemplary style and superlative relaxation. 

When designing Saranac, Mark Gabbertas visualised a design that combined exceptional comfort with an enduring aesthetic and superior materials. Asked to expand on this aspiration, Mark declared he sought “a design which seduced rather than shouted, that created immediate ease and which could continue to charm for years.”
