A new trend is around the corner and is about Cane Furniture. What is Cane? Cane is a part of the rattan plant. It is produced simply by peeling off the skin of the rattan vine. This material is then wrapped in solid hardwood, steel, or aluminum frames to create a more appealing furniture item. Cane as a wicker material effectively highlights the mottled coloring and pattern of rattan skin.
Cane furniture, it is particularly associated with the high-backed chairs with ornately carved front stretchers made at the time of the English Restoration. Cane is mostly grown in tropical countries and exported, so it’s cheaper than many solid hardwoods. An added bonus is that cane is also highly renewable because the rattan plant from which it’s made is very fast growing and can, therefore, be produced sustainably.
You can see these trends, especially on chairs. Have this material present on chairs is a high-quality chair because that’s been handcrafted and therefore feels imbued with more character and distinction than a piece that is mass produced by machines in a factory. So is a special trend don’t you think?
