Pedrali collections selected for the Villa Fiorita Boutique Hotel in Taormina



The Villa Fiorita Boutique Hotel is a traditional early 20th century Taormina villa situated close to the city’s famous Corso Umberto and features a unique blend of antique and modern-day styles.

Built on rock and recently restyled by architect Giuseppe Longhitano, the building is characterised by a sun-kissed Mediterranean garden and an architectural structure on several levels, interspersed with terraces, stone stairs and gardens.

Inside, close to one of the many terraces, stands the entrance to a Roman tomb dating back to the 2nd century AD, known locally as “La Guardiola”, or the porter’s lodge.

Pedrali’s new outdoor collections have been selected to furnish this magical setting.

Reva Twist, the elegant new three-seater sofa designed by Patrick Jouin featuring smooth lines and generous sizes is particularly suitable for the panoramic terrace in this truly exceptional location: four tapered legs in die-cast aluminium are placed at the extremities of the perimeter frame in extruded aluminium; the steel backrest and armrests are woven with a flat rope in weather-resistant polypropylene to ensure a natural yield.

The exceptionally light Lunar tables, designed by Pio and Tito Toso, complete the setting, allowing the architecture of the surrounding environment to come to life.

In addition, Pedrali welcomes guests from the moment of their arrival at the Villa Fiorita hotel: the Log seats, designed by Busetti, Garuti and Redaelli have been selected for the hotel lobby in shades of blue, that delightfully contrast with the walls and feature alongside Patrick Jouin’s Social sofa.

Finally, the breakfast room sports the Nolita chairs by CMP Design, evoking the origins of a journey embarked upon by Mario Pedrali in 1963 with his first metal garden chairs.
