Ilan Dei's new outdoor Cord furniture
Venice designer Ilan Dei will premiere his Cord Collection of outdoor furnishings at a launch party May 9. Dei's new designs are sculptural, durable and fun. The lounge chair ($799), ottoman ($399), sofa (below, $2,999), dining chair ($499) and bench ($999) consist of vinyl cording and powder-coated steel tubing. They come in four color combinations: orange/white; moss/gray; sage/sage and lime/lime.
The seating is available online now and can be previewed at the party at Ilan Dei Studio, 2100 Zeno Place, Venice. The party is open to all and will include food, drinks and DJ from 7:30 to 10:30 p.m.
Ah, Venice -- a beach community known for its surf, sand and colorful inhabitants.
