Canework, derived from ancestral know–how, is the art of weaving rattan canes. Its use dates back to the 18th century and was mainly reserved for chairs. Since then, this versatile material has managed to adapt to the tastes of each new era. The reason why we love it so much is because it combines renewal and tradition, timeless charm, and handcrafted workmanship. It is on–trend for contemporary interiors and, just for example, when combined with other natural materials never ceases to surprise us by creating boho furniture with a hint of Scandicraft… the style that takes the best of Scandinavian, warms it, humanises it and makes it cosier.
The rattan/canework blend
Rattan is a fibrous exotic plant which is processed in several forms including rattan and cane: we can’t resist the combination of the two in a single piece of furniture. Far from the cold and impersonal interior design styles which were fashionable a few years ago, this blend brings life, memories and smiles to every room in the house. A little bit boho, a little bit vintage, very cosy, natural, and authentic… In short, the perfect match!
The elm/canework blend
In Greek mythology, the elm was the god of dreams and the night… no wonder it’s perfect for bedrooms… and elsewhere! It has always been popular for its qualities of resistance (in particular to water) and its attractive grain. It is undoubtedly one of the best types of wood for contemporary furnishings. When combined with canework, it results in elegant characterful furniture that looks stunning in any room in the house.
The mindy/canework blend
Mindy is an exotic wood that seems to take us on a journey, offering us a colour that blends beautifully with the different styles of canework, both close and loosely woven. The darkness of one elevates the natural elegance of the other. The result? Furniture that gets noticed while respecting our longing for natural style and authenticity.
The teak/canework blend
As useful inside as it is outside, teak is one of the favourite woods of those who care about interior design. The warm stylish colour (from reddish brown to gold) blends perfectly with canework, resulting in furniture that’s easy to care for, hard-wearing and with timeless elegance. A hint of the fifties without ever looking old-fashioned.
