Mediterranean design with Gandia Blasco

Mediterranean design with Gandia Blasco

There’s more to Spain than sun-drenched beaches, paella and afternoon siestas. Yes, there was Pablo Picasso, but there’s also Gandia Blasco, a luxury outdoor furniture design label hailing from the stunning Mediterranean city of Valencia.

The Gandia Blasco brand first came into existence as a small family business back in 1941, originally as a manufacturer of blankets and traditional Spanish bedspreads. It wasn’t until 40 years later that big changes came with a strategic shift that saw the company focus on the production and design of home textiles, outdoor furniture and lighting. The core qualities of Gandia Blasco products have always remained the same; modern, fresh in design and full of unique personality. We don’t see this changing any time soon!

Their signature style blends modern simplicity with Mediterranean-inspired shapes and designs, and they’re a brand that we’re just crazy about.

Here at Barbed, we offer Gandia Blasco collections that range from modern outdoor dining to comfortable lounging, adding a touch of tremendous quality and class to any contemporary outdoor space. From an outdoor burner and stylish low armchairs, to luxury poolside sunloungers and garden accessories such as cushions and furniture covers. The wide range of products available from the Gandia Blasco brand can help create the perfect timeless, yet modern look that anyone could hope for.

Simple and modern in design

The Gandia Blasco Flat collection will appeal to those who favour ultra-modern designs, as it’s a versatile and contemporary outdoor furniture collection that’s based on the concept of modularity. Different items from the Flat ranges can be pieced together according to your needs and available outdoor space, whether that be a small terrace, patio, large sprawling garden or pool side. The Mesa Alta outdoor dining table, with its flat lines and durable build, can be combined with the Silla Flat outdoor dining armchair, as a fine example. That’s the beauty of choosing simple and modern designs; they can effortlessly flow together.

One showpiece item that perfectly highlights the beautiful simplicity of their products is the Ensombra parasol. It boasts a cutting-edge design that is so simple and so typical of Gandia Blasco, with a sunshade that unfolds just like a Spanish fan. Their outdoor furniture will always include a dose of that Spanish influence!

Not just impressive to look at

As designers, it’s obvious that they look far beyond the aesthetic appeal of outdoor furniture - though that is available in abundance - the company produces original pieces of garden furniture that are both chic and robust, combining to create a contemporary setting that can be enjoyed in any outdoor area throughout the entire year. The furniture is also made with the environment in mind, with thermo-lacquered aluminium profiles and 100% recyclable polyethylene just some of the environmentally-friendly materials used during the creation of their impressive collections.

We’re sure you’re keen to take a better look at the Gandia Blasco furniture and accessories that we stock, so why not pop into one of our London based showrooms?
