Gervasoni debuts outdoor furniture with waterproof fabrics
Mar '14
After two years in development, Ghost, Gervasoni’s most successful casual relaxed furniture collection, has now been realized for outdoor use. First available products include a collection of sofas & armchairs, with customization available for dining chairs and a sectional system. 
For the first time, hospitality contract and residential designers can choose to ignore the commercial aluminum and plastics systems that have dominated the outdoor furniture market in recent years. 
Visually identical to the indoor collection, Ghost for outdoor seating is modern, comfortable, and as attractive as its indoor counterpart. Once again, Gervasoni leads the casual relaxed furniture market!
Ghost is available with waterproof foam and fabrics, Classification 117 foam (fire resistance) and can be specified with COM.
Designed by Paola Navone, first introduced at the Salone del Mobile in 2007, Ghost quickly became Gervasoni’s most important upholstery collection. Much specified by designers for its Chameleon nature, disappearing under the exterior of the fabric choice. The interior collection has gradually expanded to now include multiple variations of armchairs, dining chairs, sectional systems, ottomans (floor and back rest), love seats, sofas. Beds are also available in variations of style and size, including a sofa and trundle bed.
Gervasoni Ghost is in use worldwide in upscale hospitality contract and residential locations and has been specified by many of the world’s top interior design firms.
