As an interior designer, I’m always looking for materials that are a perfect fit for today’s design direction: textured, clean, and lightweight.

While it’s never really gone out of style, caned furniture, with its classic weave pattern, is now making a big comeback, being used to make rooms look fresher and warmer. These modern silhouette furniture pieces add a timeless, natural element to any home interior.
