The Best Cane Furniture Pieces

Whether you think of it is as a material or a pattern, there’s no denying that cane pieces look so chic in the home.
First brought into vogue in the 1600’s, as a byproduct of the Southeast Asia trade markets in Europe.

This ancient technique later became synonymous with the British Colonial style we know today.

The lightweight feel and airy function of these pieces make them the perfect type of furniture for humid climates- but they really look beautiful as home decor anywhere.

No wonder so many interior designers love to use natural cane in their spaces.

Here are a few of my favorite cane design trend finds.

The cane trend is perfect if you’re looking to bring some warmth and natural texture into your home.

Gorgeous in a living room or dining room, I also love to see cane webbing used in outdoor furniture like outdoor dining chairs, outdoor dining tables and outdoor coffee tables.

The natural element of these pieces feels right at home in any outdoor space.

Plus, many of these items are very family friendly – super easy to clean with a little warm water and a damp cloth.

I also love the curvy shapes of some of these pieces.
For example, how chic is this curved two seater sofa above – and it’s currently on sale!

Vintage kitchen furniture like the Cesca chair is a classic.

This gorgeous chair is fast becoming an interior designer favorite again.

Many of these vintage styles are coming back around into vogue.

In fact, no article on cane furniture would be complete without paying homage to the original Thonet chair.

So, the good news is many of these pieces will last you a long time.


Frequently Asked Questions About Cane Furniture:

Are Rattan chairs considered the same as cane?

Both rattan furniture and cane come from the same rattan plant.

Cane is the thinner material that results from the process of stripping the rattan plant.

Wicker furniture can also be made out of rattan, but it can also be made out of bamboo, reed, willow, or even synthetic fibers.

So bamboo furniture while beautiful, is not necessarily the same as cane.

Can you use caning in a light fixture?

Yes – I’ve seen beautiful examples of both cane and rattan in light fixtures of all sizes.

I’ve even seem some really lovely outdoor lighting in cane and rattan as this popular trend shows no signs of slowing down.

      I think it’s just printed. Might be too hard to apply if it was actual? Not sure. Thanks!
