Living on the sea. Is it a dream?
This is the nautical challenge by Ethimo and Christophe Pillet, who created Costiera+Baia, a new line of outdoor furniture designed to bring the unique style onto yachts and large boats and into yachting clubs, suggesting a open-air lifestyle philosophy that from dry land moves out to sea, configuring the boat as space for living without limits.
The new yacht collection is an exercise in tailoring that harmoniously teams aesthetics and function in two seating solution versions: fabrics, generous proportions and top-quality technical materials come together in comfortable big-appeal shapes, perfect as original furnishings even in “floating” lounge areas with big contemporary allure.
Costiera has voluminous cushions and the shape of the seats, apart from the base, is constructed with technical padding that defines the actual structure. Baia has soft cushions resting on a base bordered by a system of fabric-upholstered panels.
The leitmotiv for the entire collection is a single mood enhanced by the selection of materials and finishes from the world of yachting and a range of fabrics that harks back to the true heritage of all things nautical, reworked in a contemporary key.
Furthermore, the versatile modularity of the lounge and sundeck elements enables the creation of custom settings to meet any user need. Costiera and Baia together number more than twenty pieces that, mixed and matched together, can be used to furnish spaces of different types, sizes and shapes.
The fabrics are fundamental in characterising the personality of this new yacht collection. The wide stripes of Cruise upholstery used for the Costiera line, is the perfect partner for the neutral livery of Maiorca fabric or the cushions on Baia in the finely striped Navy version. Baia flaunts all its tailoring genes in a very particular version with a strip in nautical leather teamed with fine Linen fabric.
The padding is water-repellent and sealed with a special technique that means water runs off and is prevented from penetrating them. All the cushions and armrests have easy to remove loose covers and the leather is eco-friendly and specific for outdoor use.
The refined, versatile coffee tables that complete the lounge furniture range come in sizes 90×90 cm and 150×90 cm with tops in travertine, a natural material perfect for use outside.
The base and the structure of Costiera and Baia chairs and the coffee tables are in powder-coated aluminium, in the finishes Silver, which can be combined with Accoya or natural Mahogany in a polished finish, and Carbonio, which instead goes with Iroko polished Wenge colour inserts.
With its new Costiera+Baia collection, Ethimo creates a point of encounter between the worlds of sailing and outdoor decor, generating surprising new feel-good scenarios that recall and rework the timeless elegance of a sixties nautical vibe in a contemporary key.
