Formed in 2010, Vondom is already making waves in the world of modern outdoor furniture design and manufacturing. Apart from a premium selection of avant-garde outdoor tables, chairs, chaise lounges and stools, the company also offers accessories and decorative pots, bringing contemporary elegance to alfresco and indoor spaces.
The architectural grandeur of each Vondom invention is an aesthetic manifestation of the company's passion for design and Mediterranean style. Renowned architects lead the development of Vondom's original designs, which feature eye-catching art-gallery silhouettes ranging from familiar to peculiar without sacrificing full functionality. In their collections you'll find sleek tables, some of which double as storage, and seats that resemble sculptural masterpieces but are surprisingly comfortable. For added practicality, some Vondom planters incorporate a self-watering system and many of their furniture pieces have an internal lamp or LED lighting, making them lights themselves. With a comprehensive range of products and color options, there's a Vondom for every style conscious user. To maintain their superior standard for artistry and quality, all Vondom pieces are made in Valencia, Spain using an ecological material called polyethylene, which is highly weatherproof and hardwearing.
While an excellent choice for enriching the ambiance of homes, Vondom is also making a statement in elite venues, exclusive events, and five-star hotels. Thus, it's no surprise that Vondom is often seen in online and print publications while drawing admiring glances at international fairs.
