La Vie en Rouge
Hamac Kokoon, €7680
Le Cèdre Rouge du Prince Jardinier is a Paris-based company with shops throughout France (plus one on Martinique) and possibly the most interesting range of garden furniture to be found anywhere. They are known for outdoor furnishings that run the gamut from modernist to whimsical, as well as their designs inspired by famous French gardens.
Fauteuil Peacock, €595
Chaise Luxembourg Mémoire, €295
So highly are their historically-inspired designs regarded that they've been authorized by Didier Wirth, Président du Comité des Parcs et Jardins de France, to reissue furniture and accessories from the gardens at château de Brécy (below), where he lives with his wife, Barbara.
