Or just let me lounge in a chair designed and made there. Let me rest for a long, long time with a caipirinha in one hand, a fan in the other, and a Post-it on my forehead that reads “Rio or bust.” Who needs a silver jet when you’re sitting in one of Tidelli Outdoor Living’s Painho chairs? Fully handmade, the chair has an open pattern of nautical rope slung on a high-grade aluminum frame. Each piece is powder-coated to resist weather in any part of the globe.
Anyone with a soft spot for a vintage peacock chair will feel right at home in a Painho. They’re inspired by the traditional chief’s chair on cocoa farms of the chair’s native country. The Painhos join a wide collection of more than 200 handmade products in infinite color combinations. Vacation-minded swings and daybeds complement chairs, sofas, sun loungers, dining tables, and stools.
Fifty-five different shades of nautical rope make the material the company’s signature. The rope even winds its way through their new accessories, including vases, baskets, rugs, and lanterns paned with upcycled glass.
The family-owned company led by four siblings recently entered the U.S. market. After 25 years transforming the luxury outdoor-furniture industry in Brazil, Tidelli Outdoor Living opened its first U.S. showrooms in Fountain Valley and at the Pacific Design Center, launching eight new collections in the process. The new lines are part of Tidelli’s 20 outdoor collections currently available to the market.
Tidelli stands for more than Brazilian-style leisure. The brand’s manufacturing facility in Brazil was constructed in an underdeveloped community with a focus on socially sustainable business practices including job opportunities for local residents.
