Ibiza living: TANIS Ibiza – Let’s go outside
Since its inception in 2014, Ibiza home decorating specialists TANIS Ibiza have been renowned for their signature collections of stylish interior furniture, lighting and more. Over the course of those same three years however, the brand has also been quietly developing a reputation for its expertise when it comes to decorating outdoor spaces, and the collections arriving in store for the 2017 summer season are a reflection of this success.
What has changed predominantly in recent years when it comes to furnishing outdoor spaces is the style and quality of fabrics and pieces available. Forget ugly, durable plastics or itchy, hot, rough plastic cushions – today’s styles are sleek and contemporary – not unlike statement furniture that would be seen in a plush modern living room – while textures could easily be mistaken for luxurious linen.
At the TANIS Ibiza showroom, found on the road from Ibiza to Santa Gertrudis – and easily spotted by the bright orange starfish on the sign – you’ll find a new range of chic and sophisticated new outdoor wooden seating, made from ultra durable materials complete with plush cushions, designed in single and larger style seating options. TANIS Ibiza owners, interior designers Tatjana Berger-Sandhofer and Nick Lording, spend their winter seasons scouring the globe for the hippest and hottest new collections – Italy, England, Scandinavia and Belgium are just some of the destinations from which new deliveries are arriving daily.
If you’re simply looking to update your outdoor soft furnishings, TANIS Ibiza features an entire wall of outdoor fabrics – though you’ll probably need to ask for help to identify which rolls they are, as they’re so close to the texture and feel of natural linen, very few ‘regular folk’ could tell the difference. Roll upon roll of beautiful natural and neutral hues plus sophisticated striped patterns are waiting to be transformed into waterproof, durable and sun-protected cushions, daybed covers, curtains and more.
Outdoor lighting too, is another specialty of TANIS Ibiza, who are exclusive stockists of the highly-sought after, oversized, all-weather wicker light shades – as seen in some of the world’s most exclusive beach clubs, including Scorpios in Mykonos, and luxury villas in Ibiza. Moroccan floor lamps are also available, in a range of sizes and shapes ready to perfectly illuminate your garden path or terrace area, along with gorgeous glass candleholders to make the perfect outdoor table setting on a balmy summer night.
For those Ibiza villa owners looking for more than just a new chair or light fixture for their property, TANIS Ibiza also offer a full exterior design service, from concept to completion. Be it an outdoor living room, alfresco dining space or luxurious terrace lounge you seek, the creative couple work to your brief to develop a new look that is completely suited to your style. And as always, TANIS Ibiza are experts when it comes to breathing new life into interiors. In fact, why not just give them the keys to your property for an entire indoor and outdoor overhaul before summer?
Don’t see what you want on the TANIS showroom? Don’t give up – the options are endless. Tatjana and Nick are on hand to answer your questions and source the pieces you’ve been dreaming of to kit out your Ibiza home. Whether you want to work closely together, or simply give them free reign to apply the chic TANIS aesthetic to your home while you’re busy working, with their little (ok, enormous) black book of contacts, anything is possible.
