SHOWROOM: A New Outdoor Collaboration

LINLEY and Summit collaborated on a new line of outdoor furnishings. The new pieces feature subtle detailing and singular style. Image courtesy Summit. Two icons of design have come together for something brand new. Summit, of chic, teak outdoor furniture fame, and LINLEY, the venerable British design house have teamed on a new range of furnishings available in the United States just in time for spring.

The new line brings with it a transitional look to Summit, but retains the elegant styling found across the company’s collections. Case in point: “The two-seater sofa is designed with comfort and relaxation in mind, the welcoming shape complemented by the polished stainless steel feet to create a sharp, yet beautiful contrast with the teak,” says Alex Isaac, LINLEY’s creative director. The piece features dovetail details, too, a nod, it would seem, to LINLEY’s roots cabinetmaking roots.

A coffee table and lounge chair join the sofa in the initial launch and echo the design of the sofa with the same curving frames and subtle detailing. The result is a timeless look that will fit in a range of projects. Look for a chaise longue, an occasional table and a dining table and dining to be added down the road.

Summit and LINLEY’s recent partnership grew out of longstanding knowledge of and relationship with each other. LINLEY has often specified Summit pieces for its projects, and the European side of Summit is based in London as is LINELY. Given their history, it made sense then, when LINLEY was exploring building a lifestyle brand that would include an outdoor collection, that the two firms should collaborate, bringing their decades of shared design experience together.

Of course, outdoor living isn’t complete without outdoor accessories, so LINLEY has also created a picnic hamper, an outdoor dining set and rechargeable outdoor lamps for a complete summer experience.
