The coating is available in different fabrics for outdoor use with many shades to choose from. Detail that characterizes instead the frame of the bed is the reclining back and a comfortable area for objects, useful to have handy phone, creams, towels etc. The inherent versatility characterizes the outdoor collection Surplus and makes it suitable for multiple contexts of furniture, both to the different needs of the user than the changing environment of the day, the season or the latitude.
