Royal Botania supports Michael J. Fox Foundation
Casual Living Staff -- Casual Living, March 15, 2011
In association with its New York showroom location D'Apostrophe LLC, Royal Botania is proudly participating in a new campaign developed to benefit the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's research.
As the largest private funder of Parkinson's research, the Michael J. Fox Foundation is committed to not only cure the debilitating disease in the long term, but to provide immediate improved therapy for the 5 million people currently living with Parkinson's worldwide.
With spring around the corner, Royal Botania's extensive line of outdoor furniture will play an important role in the fundraising efforts. Now through March 31, the showroom will be donating 3% of every Royal Botania sale over $5,000 to the grassroots community initiative known as Team Fox.
The special promotion applies to popular collections like Ninix and Ozon as well as its latest introductions set to hit the showroom in 2011.
This lounge collection is the perfect marriage of contemporary materials and '60s-inspired design. The seating is both comfortable and fashionable. It has a poly-acrylic shell and a shiny electro-polished stainless-steel base. The series also offers a complete range of deluxe, all-weather cushions. From corner and middle pieces to a lounger, the modular collection features a number of different customizable combinations. Tables and footrests in dark woodprint from Trespa or white acrylic complement the seating.
Ergonomics, geometry and comfort are the foundation of this seating series from Royal Botania. Inspired by the female body, the chair consists of several concave and convex shapes, each made by cutting and forming an aluminum plate. The DLX300 wide table follows the sleek and elegant form of the seat and is made with an aluminum frame/foot and a corian tabletop.
Royal Botania's new Red Label Collection features simpler shapes and uses less material, without compromising the overall quality and refinement that has given the brand its worldwide appreciation. The Red Label family includes two lines of chairs - QT and Bokz - and a table range called Sexion. The latter comes in a variety of colors, sizes and materials including a high-pressure laminate or ceramic tabletop. Each new piece has been designed to fit with the entire line of outdoor products from Royal Botania.
It is very hard not to appreciate the unique refined shape of these products. Despite its slim stainless steel profile, the seat offers maximum stability. Cute (hence, QT) and comfortable, both the chairs and the loungers are also easily stackable.
A box-like folded seat suspended in a tubular aluminum space-frame might not be the first thing that comes to mind when imagining a comfortable chair. Still, this original concept delivers more than just good looks. The cushions are clad with fine upholstery to offer additional comfort and a wide range customized color options.
New additions to old favorites
Completing the list of groundbreaking additions, new materials and accents are now offered on three distinct existing collections. The Ozon collection of tables and chairs is so popular that Royal Botania is introducing a bar chair to the mix and releasing the line's signature tripod tables in a new height option.
The Ozon collection's tables, Ozon 90, 130 and 160, now come in two height options, the original model at 28 inches and a new HLS model at 43 inches. As a new addition to the collection, the ergonomically designed Ozon 43 bar chair is as fun as it is functional, with a stable stainless steel base and support made of Batyline. The mesh material comes in a variety of cool colors including: turquoise, orange, black, cappuccino and white. Dimensions are 44 x 17 x 20 inches.
Speaking of Batyline, SHADY aluminum-base, large-scale umbrellas now also come in this French woven material and are available in three colors: white, cappuccino and black. Praised for its extreme durability and resistance to rot, mildew, and fading, Batyline makes a sleek and practical choice for umbrella covering and is ideal for poolside use.
Last but not least, the Ninix Collection of expandable tables, NNX 270 and NNX 360, are available in two new tabletop options - resilient corian and high-pressure laminate. The new tabletops come in black, gray and white.
