About the Mid Century Modern Collection

A ‘Mid-century Modern' style is timeless, class and everlasting. Caning is one of the most ancient crafts and has made a comeback as part of a global move towards more consciously produced goods and furniture. An eclectic combination of a dark solid mango wooden frame and light woven cane makes these pieces a statement. Caned furniture oozes a history and prestige of leisure that is hard to ignore. The woven pattern lends a casual, collected-over-time look to furniture styles, including boho, traditional, and contemporary. This product is made from rattan, a naturally sustainable material due to its fast growth, short renewal, dependence on existing rainforests, and ability to grow in areas that would otherwise be natural wastelands. This rattan is then hand-harvested and hand-woven into the item you see here.
