Indian Ocean Venus range - mid-century style outdoor furniture


It's not easy finding cool outdoor furniture and even harder finding something smart for a conservatory or sun room. But the Indian Ocean Venus range should make that search considerably easier.

Look familiar? Well, you might spot a distinct similarity with the 1960s Warren Platner range for Knoll (which we covered some time back). The tables are almost identical, aside from a slight shift in proportion, slightly different wirework and of course, the option to use this particular range outside.

All the range is lightweight for easy carrying and is finished in white. Choose from two sizes of dining table (from £496), three styles of chair (a carver chair with arms for £229, a dining chair for £194 and a larger lounger for £413), with custom cushions also available, priced at £90.

You can see them now at Selfridges - and you can see more images over the page.

If Warren Platner heard you say there's a "a distinct similarity with the 1960s Warren Platner range for Knoll", he'd be appalled.

Isn't there a different way to say what it is you mean here? I thnk that's a slap in the face of Warren's work.
