Created for hoteliers, the Cape Soleil Contract Collection is designed to be just as appealing indoors as outside and can be mixed and matched as desired. It features comfortable furniture that requires minimal maintenance and is constructed from lightweight materials that provide strength, weather and rust-resistance for long-term durability. In addition, Cape Soleil furniture uses UV-resistant contract fabrics from Sunbrella™ and Phifer™ to protect against fading and stand up to rigorous use in commercial environments.
According to Apryl Lamberti, director of business development, Hospitality for Almo, “Hotels, restaurants and resorts rely on outdoor furniture to provide the best experience for guests by creating a calming, relaxing and inviting space that they can enjoy and remember.” She continued, “Almo has leveraged its strong vendor partnership with Agio, one of the largest design manufacturers globally for outdoor furniture to build upon this relationship to introduce the Cape Soleil line of contract quality furniture for the hospitality market. The Cape Soleil brand expands Almo’s offering to support resellers who may never have worked with furnishings to diversify relationships at the property level and strengthen their skill sets and capabilities for long-term growth and stability. And Almo stands behind the product with quick-ship availability, attentive customer service, a dedicated hospitality team and a commercial contract warranty.”
"Agio has been a leading supplier of outdoor furniture for more than 25 years, and we have enjoyed a very successful partnership with Almo,” said John Oppenheimer, executive vice president of sales and marketing for Agio. The time is right to build on this success as two thriving companies come together to launch the Cape Soleil line to the hospitality market. The Cape Soleil Furniture Collection features the best combination of Agio’s quality craftmanship, state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities and sustainable manufacturing processes with Almo’s strong relationships and specialization in the hospitality market space.”
