Genet Nuguse. Furniture. March 25th , 2018.
We‘re all familiar with rattan, although sometimes we think it‘s one and the same as wicker. But the material we now associate with cozy furniture is actually full of surprises. The term rattan, for instance, defines more than 600 species of climbing palms and a lot of them are in fact more similar to lianas than to actual wood. Rattan has slender stems and doesn‘t grow like a tree but more like a vine, also being a bit similar to bamboo from certain points of view.
A lot of the unique sideboards that we chose to include here pay homage to something special. It’s no different for the Whakairo sideboard from Alma de Luce which has a design that takes inspiration from nature but also from the art of sculpting wood celebrated by the Maori – Whakairo culture. The sideboard is made of walnut wood and has a memorable, tapered structure.
Obviously, just because you want a space to be comfortable and practical doesn’t mean you shouldn‘t pay attention to the looks. A good idea is to pick materials that stand out and that have a well-defined look and character, materials such as wood and metal. Complement them with something a bit more delicate such as frosted glass.
If you‘re in the mood for something classic, perhaps this Gazette rack would make you happy. Its simple design allows it to be versatile and to serve as both a magazine rack and as a book storage option. Moreover, it‘s easy to imagine this accent piece in just about any type of space or decor.
