Shop: An Iconic Design Gets a Summer Makeover

May 30, 2013 | Alex 

What do you do when the mercury hits 90 and your sleek leather Lama Chair  suddenly feels sticky and unwelcoming? (An aspirational problem, to be sure.)


If you happen to be the icon's designers Ludovica and Roberto Palomba, you swap it out for a woven cord version (left). And while you're at it, swap your Milan abode for a converted 17th century mill in Salento.) To enjoy your Lama chair poolside, try the outdoor version (right).

This weekend, I plan to make a seasonal decor change of my own. Come Saturday, you'll find my window AC unit successfully installed. (Or possibly, in pieces on the street below my third-story bedroom window-- we'll see how it goes.)
