When the weather warms and we start welcoming Spring into our homes, it’s the perfect time to think about making some small seasonal changes to your home. This year, we’ve been really craving those details that remind us of the tropics — bright colors, leaf prints, and woven textures. We loved weaving pieces with raffia and rattan accents into the rooms of our 2017 catalog. Just one piece can give a room a touch of that island feel, without being too kitschy!
Our Bailey Pendants are made of woven, hand painted rattan. They’re an unexpected material and the perfect complement to a casual breakfast nook. The only challenge is deciding between the neutral or spa stripe … unless of course you hang both!
Last Spring, we introduced a fabric that looks like raffia (woven palm leaves) but that can be upholstered onto your favorite furniture pieces. We used our Natural Woven Sand fabric on our new Emery Headboard to bring a laid-back feel to this bedroom. Paired with black and peacock blues, it balances playful and classic pieces.
Of course the fact that it’s made of polypropylene makes this fabric the perfect choice for furniture pieces that wear and tear, like our Weston Ottoman. Mop up dirt, stains, and other grime with no fuss!
We love banquettes because they’re just so darn practical. Because of their straight back, you can easily give a small space function, either as a dining area or a workspace. So it’s no surprise that our new woven Rosalind banquette is a favorite around our office. Place a single bench in a mudroom as a drop spot, turn a corner into a casual breakfast space, or use one in a vacation home.
Of course we can’t forget to mention one of our favorite new pieces this season — our Adele Sideboard. It has a gorgeous raffia texture, and it’s neutral color means it can work in almost any space. Here, we paired it with vibrant pinks, but because of it’s dressy, brass hardware, it works in both formal and casual rooms.
