Stylist Maria Gabriella Zecca has been tapped by Roda, the maker of outdoor furnishings nestled in the Italian province of Varese, for a series of sophisticated rugs in desaturated hues. Loom-woven by hand and dubbed Tint, Zecca’s eye for hues yields two subtle colorways unencumbered by trendchasing: Blueen, a mix of aqua, sky blue, and green, and Griege, a mélange of grays and browns. Rendered in polypropylene, each rug measures 78 by 118 inches and has fringe unusually placed along its two longer sides. It lends a softness to the sturdy outdoor ground coverings, which could easily migrate indoors.
French designer Jean Nouvel’s NVL table (now in a coral-red special edition) floats a slim top above a substantial base, the converging volumes retaining a noticeable void—an apt metaphor for pandemic times.
