At the pool
Repaired furniture, fabric
BLESS has taken care of the worn umbrellas and garden chairs of the kiosk terrace currently closed for consumption. With their contribution BLESSrepair (2021) BLESS revives the TROPEZ with seatpaddings entitled BLESS N °46. Towels left at the swimming pool were made into throws for chairs with upholstered letters. A fringed umbrella serves as a dressing room with a floral decorated privacy screen and enhances the furniture of the TROPEZ brought to the fifth year with elegant fabrics.
