Rattan and cane

Au naturel with retro rattan and classic cane

Latest News


Au naturel with retro rattan and classic cane

Not just reserved for outdoor furniture anymore, rattan and cane are having a big moment inside the home too. How fitting after spending so much time indoors this spring in our collective effort to flatten the curve. With the summer season upon us, why not blur the lines between indoor and outdoor living even more? The truth is, this “au naturel” trend had already taken shape pre-pandemic. Generally, we are gravitating towards natural materials that bring in the soul and elements from nature into our abodes. Cane and rattan are natural materials, which both derive from the rattan palm, a vine from Southeast Asia. When the rattan palm is processed, it splits into two parts: cane is the thin core reed, used in webbed patterns seen in furniture applications, such as the back of a chair; the larger rattan reed material is used to weave wicker furniture and basketry.

The rising use of cane and rattan in decor is also due to the ever-growing popularity of grand-millennial style adopted by some millennials, AKA the new traditionalists. Think chintz upholstery, tassels, needlepoint and in this case, furniture made from materials once reserved for your grandmother’s screened porch.

Trending or not, cane and rattan pieces make a statement without adding visual weight in a space. You can bring in the vintage weaves with a light fixture, storage unit, chair or decor item. The major appeal for us is the cool coastal beach vibe rattan and cane evoke, and who doesn’t want to add some sweet summertime favourites inside our homes all year long?

Trend watch 2020 – Pantone Colour of the Year

With 2020 marking the 20th anniversary of colour authority, Pantone, choosing the colour of the year, the pressure was on to define and set the tone for a new decade. “We are living in a time that requires trust and faith. It is this kind of constancy and confidence that is expressed by PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue, a solid and dependable blue hue we can always rely on,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute.

Interesting how the company started the tradition at the dawn of this millennium with Cerulean Blue, the colour of the sky on a serene, crystal clear day connoting restful, peaceful and relaxing times. An antidote, if you will, to calm the uncertainty of the new century and the Y2K scare that predominated the period.

It seems we need the same type of reassurance as we embark upon this century’s version of the roaring ’20s (let’s hope it ends better than that one did!). Imprinted in our psyches as a restful colour, Classic Blue brings a sense of peace to the human spirit, offering refuge. It also aids concentration and brings laser-like clarity, re-centering our thoughts.

After two decades of interpreting the colour culture of the time, Pantone remains loyal to the much-loved blue family, encouraging the human race in uncertain times. It is somewhat poetic that a clear daytime sky blue inaugurated the century, and 20 years later, Classic Blue depicts the colour of the sky at day’s end — dusk — a time of day when we process the day’s events and anticipate what the evening hours will bring. As far as decorating with this universal favourite shade of blue, the options are endless…from large furniture pieces, like a supple velvet sofa to pops of the versatile colour on walls, fixtures, dishware and bedding. The sky is the limit…literally.

HOME FINDS: TREND WATCH: Shades of Summer

by Silvana Longo

Nothing sparks design inspiration as much as the sights and colours we soak in during our international travels. They awaken our senses and breathe new life into our design taste buds. It is no wonder we want to somehow recreate the stimulating visuals we experienced abroad into our interiors upon our return.

This season, fill your home with fresh air, clean neutrals, touches of abstract watercolour, and pops of rich mustard and pistachio hues. The soft mixtures of white walls, warm woods, and abstract glazes make your home feel calm and light, combined with terracotta accents, which ground the space.

TERRACOTTA is making a major comeback.

Like an old friend you haven’t seen in decades (since the ’90s to be exact)

Much of our modern-day stresses are due to digital overload; more than ever, the remedy is to embrace Mother Nature’s colours and raw materials in our homes. Nothing does that better than Terracotta—a rich, warm and ancient material—the colour is also enjoying a resurgence as we get back to basics. The warm, earthy, organic tone we are seeing this time is lighter than before—less brick, more pink—a fusion of previous it-colours, blush pink and copper. The dusky pink echoes architecture from the Mediterranean, Middle East and Mexico.

Not that 70’s YELLOW

The nature and global-inspired theme continues with our second colour pick in the spotlight. In fashion, varying shades of yellow pervaded the Spring/Summer ’18 collections… in interiors though, it isn’t that intimidatingly bright yellow, instead it is an earthy, golden ochre, some call mustard, a shade which works well with the warmer colour palette that we are gravitating to this year. In an earth-toned space, mustard yellow adds the final touch to lighten the mood. Although it pairs well with just about any colour scheme, mixing ochre with navy will create a rich and sophisticated look.

HISTORY LESSON: A natural material, Ochre is a natural clay and was the most commonly used pigment for painting walls in the ancient Mediterranean world.

We end this trio of trend colours with what is proverbially known as the cherry on top…My Preferred Pastel

PISTACHIO

Known as the “green gold” that grows at the feet of Etna, its shell contains the delicate flavour and aroma of Sicily, the island of sea and sun. Besides the fact that it is my absolute favourite gelato flavour (and pretty much anything made with pistachios), the pretty pastels of sorbet are a big trend in interiors this year. This particular hue brings freshness and energy to a room as well as inspring optimism and a festive mood. Much like that feeling you get when you indulge in your favourite ice cream.

Off The Wall

When it comes to wallcoverings in a small space, we talked to the experts, and the resounding consensus is to GO BIG.

Local wallpaper connoisseur, Maria Raco, founder of luxury designer wallpaper showroom in Toronto, NewWall House says: It seems to be a common belief that large patterns in tiny spaces tend to overwhelm a room and make it appear even smaller, when in fact, applying a wallcovering with a big, bold pattern actually energizes a tiny space.

The latest collections from NewWall House

We crossed the pond and spoke with U.K. Murals Wallpaper head of design, Catherine Jacob, and she recommends these eye-catching murals for small spaces:

muralswallpaper.co.uk

BLUE AND WHITE GRUNGE WATERCOLOUR The punches of blue and white tones in the mural, mixed with the different textures, give any wall more impact, regardless of scale. The design also acts as an optical illusion, in that it hides the corners of the room, and conceals where the wall starts and end.
JACOBSEN The large geometric shapes of the Jacobsen design work well in smaller rooms. Due to the oversize patterns, in particular the halved-circle shapes, the design outscales the wall, making it feel loftier. The mural is best styled with minimalist furniture, which allows the pattern to take centre stage.
Raco provides some helpful hints on How to pull off these large-scale patterms in a tiny abode:

  • Apply the pattern on all four walls as opposed to just a feature wall. This consistency will give the illusion of the space expanding in size.
  • If you prefer the room to have a more calming effect, choose soft colours instead.
  • Opt for texture if committing to a (big) pattern is too challenging.
