Trend: Furniture with cane webbing

cane webbing sofa

Move over wicker and rotan because cane webbing is taking over home decors. It might take a while for this design revival to grow on people. I can imagine one has to get used to the comeback of this golden oldie from the 1980s. But then again, the 80's were in fact also a renaissance period because cane webbing was first introduced in home decor in colonial ages. It is a typical Indonesian artisan.

Trend: Green tiles

Emerald green is one of the hottest colours this season. Together with burgundy, gold and dark blue, it is part of the luxury current that is taking over home decor.

However, mixed with rustic wood it warms the space up. In the bathroom emerald green adds sophistication if you pair it with a checkered tile floor or with … [Read more...]

Combined with a rustic wooden … [Read more...]
