Weylandts Goes Monochrome
Weylandts is known for its cutting edge style and carefully curated furniture and homeware collections. In keeping with this the brand has just launched its new, edgy black and white outdoor furniture collection, now available in all stores. This is the first time that SA’s leading furniture retailer has released such a bold themed collection with patterns on-trend and paralleled to the Fall/Winter 2015 collections of fashion icons Balenciaga and Valentino.
“The juxtaposition of black and white is a timeless trend in fashion and décor, but this year’s patterns are bigger and bolder than ever, unlike the monochromatic minimalism seen in the past,” comments Chris Weylandt, MD of Weylandts.
As in fashion, the outdoor collection’s mix of striking prints fits in with this season’s “more is more” rather than “less is more” trend. Tribal prints have been combined with large gingham checks for a striking colour block styled contrast.
Handwoven in Indonesia out of materials such as polyratten over aluminium frames, these pieces of furniture are ideal for creating an aesthetically distinctive outdoor haven for relaxation.
Look out for the Rock Lounger (R 14 995), Seventies Occasional Chair (R 2 995), Basket Occasional Chair (R 8 995), Tribal Occasional Chair (R 7 995) and the Star Gazer Chair (R 11 995).
