Since I like to shop local, I am particularly drawn to Brooklyn designer Jessica Carnivale’s debut line of colorful woven outdoor chairs, aptly named Stretch.
Carnivale experimented with a number of different materials and chose latex, bungee and rope for their bright colors and elasticity. The chairs, which come in three different weaves, are built by Jessica in her Brooklyn studio. The designer explains that she “wanted to bring some of the exuberance of the fashion world into the designs.”
