S P O N S O R E D C O N T E N T 2 0 1 7 • r e s t a u r a n t d e v e l o p m e n t + d e s i g n • 4 7 Fermob Atlanta's Bread & Butterfly is a European-inspired café and bistro that offers its customers decadent seasonal breakfast and lunches, along with bistro-style dinners served with espresso drinks, wine, beer, cocktails and dessert. Bread & Butterfly consisted of a small bar and intimate dining room, until recently, when the restaurant was looking to add a stylish patio that reflected the café's whimsical style. Owner Kristin Allin was seeking patio chairs that had a stylish French feel with a bright and sunny appearance. "I needed comfortable options that were also very durable to be able to stand up to Atlanta's humid- ity," said Allin. "It can be difficult to find chairs that hold up nicely without the color fading." Allin visited Fermob USA's showroom and found the perfect fit with the company's Luxembourg chair line. In 2004, Fermob asked Paris- based designer Frédéric Sofia to reinterpret the renowned chairs and armchairs of the Jardin du Luxembourg, created in 1923 in the Paris parks department workshops, and which Fermob still manufactures today for the city's public gardens. The result was a chair and armchair with distinctive lines and forms, com- bining the lightness and resistance of aluminum, the comfort of curved seat slats and the practicality of a stackable frame. "I liked that I could choose from different colors – we chose honey – and that the chairs had a very clean, urban, French and feminine look," she said. Allin will soon be adding coordinated benches from Fermob USA's Luxembourg line to accommo- date customers waiting for tables. "Overall, we love the feeling and vibe from the chairs' design and appearance," she says. Finding the Perfect Chair The Luxembourg chairs from Fermob USA are durable, comfortable and beautifully designed for a wide range of outdoor applications. Fermob - Thoissey - France FOR MORE INSPIRATION Professional catalogue available at Fermob's Luxembourg Collection embodies the spirit of the renowned chairs from the Jardin du Luxembourg and adds a modern flair. Available in 24 colors, the durable collection combines the lightness of aluminum, comfort of curved slats and practicality of stackable frames for a stylish space. - Photo : Stéphane Rambaud THE LUXEMBOURG COLLECTION
