Founded in 1994 in Meda, in the Lombard district dedicated to design furniture
, Paola Lenti is a company whose precise objective is to create not just simple furnishing objects, but real domestic landscapes, essential, balanced, between experimentation and research, tradition and technology. Over the years the brand has established itself on the international scene thanks to its timeless solutions, destined to last over the years, with ergonomic and comfortable indoor furnishing elements and a wide range of outdoor furniture
. Past and present, exterior and interior, tradition and technology: Paola Lenti's products are based on a constant balance between these opposites that attract with simplicity, projects where the quality of the material and the simplicity of the shape are important, but where the study of chromatic and aesthetic choices that make them unique products is not neglected. Refined carpets with hi-tech yarns, resistant and durable wood and metal structures, comfortable solutions for interiors and new solutions for exteriors.
Carpets and indoor and outdoor furniture by Paola Lenti
For Paola Lenti the rug
has always been a furnishing accessory that helps to define the space and adds style and character to the rooms. In the indoor rugs the protagonist is felt, a natural material with great technical qualities to which wool tails can be superimposed, whose combination generates new and original patterns and colour shades. For exteriors, water-repellent materials, loomed or woven, create carpets and mats
that evoke natural landscapes. In products such as the headboard of the Silent bed
, or the indoor and outdoor seats of the Home and Aqua collections and the Plump mattresses, interwoven materials are used in Chain and Chain Outdoor, with which the art of weaving is proposed in a contemporary and technical way.
Several international awards and prizes obtained by Paola Lenti's products and collections: Francesco Rota's Linea
were selected for the Compasso d'Oro award in 2001 and 2004, while in 2011 Axel Russmeyer's Loom
was selected. Rope fabric wins the Wallpaper Award in 2015 as best fabric of the year. Rope covers many of Paola Lenti's outdoor products including the Wave chaise longue
, with steel structure and woven upholstery, designed in 2003 by Francesco Rota and inspired by the essential forms of Linea, the indoor chaise longue of 1998 and awarded with Honorable Mention at the Compasso d'Oro in 2001. Again thanks to the collaboration of the designer Francesco Rota, in 2018 the Lido series
received the Good Design Award: chair, armchair and bistro table, practical and stackable, are made with a new exclusive material signed Paola Lenti, the Diade, technical material for outdoor, light, resistant, completely recyclable.
Paola Lenti and experimentation on materials
At the basis of the company's project is a constant study of the quality and performance of the materials, a continuous experimentation aimed at conceiving resistant and durable products: from wood to metals, from stones to fabrics. A special eye is dedicated to the study of colour and proportions, so that the object is not only resistant but also able to transmit empathy and emotion. From these premises are born products with a simple but emotional design, architectural structures that create a coherent whole with upholstery and fabrics.
Both the carpets
and the seating
, for indoor and outdoor use, have top quality materials and upholstery fabrics, produced exclusively by the company itself: synthetic or natural fibres guarantee high quality both functional and aesthetic, such as Rope and Aquatech yarns, the object of careful research and experimentation, are perfect for outdoor furniture collections because they are resistant to atmospheric agents, sunlight and water. The study on the quality of materials also concerns fabrics for indoor environments, such as wool and cotton in coordinated colours, or woods and stones used for outdoor use, always carefully selected and in line with the philosophy of the product, and with the essential and refined design of the brand.
