Outdoor Chic: Italian Garden Collection from Bellini

Bellini Modern Living, a distributor of modern Italian-made furniture, is extending its outdoor furniture business into the hospitality segment. The COVID-19 pandemic created new opportunities for restaurants and hotels to raise their game with outdoor furniture, creating an opportunity for Bellini, according to the company. 

“During the pandemic restaurants and hotels opened new dining and seating areas outdoors all year long and these have become permanent additions to their facilities. Those moves required a new level of function, design and quality, presenting a wonderful opportunity for our new Italian Garden collection,” said Frederik Winther, VP of sales and marketing for Bellini Modern Living. “We have partnered with one of the top Italian producers of outdoor furniture who specializes in developing outdoor products for the residential and hospitality sector. Leveraging that partnership, we have aligned our offerings with key contract outdoor applications so the pieces will impress visitors from the moment they walk through the door. Our outdoor furniture truly stands above the rest, not only because of its beauty, craftsmanship and customization but also because it can fit many different environments—from cafes to hotels—and are offered at wholesale prices.”

The new Italian Garden collection comprises 15 groupings created by Italian designers. Inspired by the visuals of an Italian outdoor bistro, the new collection is customizable in terms of fabrics, colors and frame finishes. The fabrics are suitable for all weather environments. Options include more than 10 fabrics and frame colors, and all are fully galvanized inside and outside of the frame to prevent rust when exposed to outdoor elements.

Highlights of the new releases include the Valentino and Summertime outdoor dining sets, which feature a dining table and chairs. The sets, part of the Bistro collection, provide an elegant look to any outdoor space. All metal pieces are galvanized inside and out and primed for anti-corrosion and for long lasting, technologically advanced durability. Each piece is powder coated and UV treated to create a perfectly smooth surface that is fade resistant and will stand the rigors and conditions of commercial outdoor use. 

Seating durability has been made easier with Bellini’s specially engineered performance fabric technology that meets the specific challenges that come with high traffic in commercial environments. The fabrics are mold resistant and contain antistain and antibacterial properties. They also feature Teflon coating inside the fabric to create a completely water-resistant cushion that will not absorb water.

The chairs are customizable with 18 color choices. Almost all are stackable for storage and easy access in a small footprint. There are also two tables that include self-adjusting “flexing” surface tops to prevent tables from wobbling on uneven services.
