Handwoven in Spain by expert craftsmen, outdoor furniture pieces from Valencia-based Expormim exude “a Mediterranean character, spreading the culture behind them,” says Mercedes Laso Galbis, granddaughter of the company’s founder.
The collection, expanded from the original line of wicker baskets that Miguel Laso Tortosa began manufacturing in 1960, is made with natural materials that are as comfortable living indoors as out. We’ve been admiring the family-owned company’s new Lapala line of chairs:
