In keeping with tradition, Monaco is to present its super-glamorous side between September 26 and 29, 2018: This is the time when luxury yachts anchor at Port Hercules for the annual Monaco Yacht Show. 120 super and mega yachts are being presented this year, of which 40 have been newly launched on the market. With all this excitement, the opportunity to catch one’s breath on an exclusive seat is more than welcome: The yacht “Benetti Mediterraneo 116,” dubbed “Mr. Loui” for short, features exterior furnishings by Paola Lenti. The yacht measuring 35 meters in length has three decks, which were equipped by design duo Ezequiel Farca and Cristina Grappin with a view to creating a varied color scheme. The entrance area features “Ami” armchairs by Paola Lenti in dazzling azure blue. Upholstery with hand-woven signature material and a stainless-steel frame lend the armchair its remarkable look. At the pool, the adjustable upholstered sunbed “Swell” in aquamarine visually sets the tone for a refreshing time. Lunch is served sitting on the comfortable folding chairs “Portofino” with a dark robinia-wood frame and sand-colored upholstery.
High-society guests can also enjoy Paola Lenti’s comfortable furnishings on the “Upper Deck Lounge” in the event tent Parvis Piscine A/C: The Italian furniture brand conceived the show’s central meeting place in collaboration with Sabrina Monte-Carlo. As a main news, Paola Lenti is showing the armchair and sofas collection “Tapio” by designer Francesco Rota, which was presented for the first time at this year’s Salone del Mobile in Milan. (am)
