You will have noticed cane is having a moment when it comes to furniture. It has been for a while; I can just be slightly slow on the uptake when it comes to this kind of trend. I will let you into a secret I am always a little reluctant about interior trends if I’m being totally honest. I ignore them at the start as I like to see if they will pass quickly but if I keep seeing things and I keep liking them then I will start to consider whether they are something that truly deserves my attention. I won’t lie there is probably a little arrogance on my part at play, that I don’t necessarily want to like what everyone else does. What that psychologically says about me I don’t want to know. So often by the stage I truly notice a trend they are probably viewed as passé, I’m not too bothered, nothing worse than committing too soon and then regretting it. So what is so great about cane, and rattan for that matter?
Well I like the idea that it is an alternative way to bring those soothing natural wooden tones in your home. On a practical note it is lightweight, hardwearing and relatively less costly alternatives than investing into solid wooden furniture.
