Cane is having a must-have moment in homes.
Caning first popped up in the 17th century on furniture, but current interpretations see the six-way grid cunningly etched, enlarged and printed onto clothing and accessories. While you may not want to dress like a dining chair — no matter how stylish — the weave's cool graphic look translates beautifully into Lee Walsh's modern powder-coated metal table or Patricia Urquiola's witty outdoor Canasta lounge for B&B Italia. Whether embellishing outdoor fabrics or an oversized garden pitcher, today's chic new takes on the timeless pattern are elegant, eternal and everywhere.
