Cane furniture is back! Lining everything from sideboards to stools, the open weave and bumpy texture has a friendly quality; its netting an open book that seems to say: “Don’t take me too seriously.” Snap up new pieces for your pad, or hunt down a set of vintage Cesca chairs. Remember those? They were everyone’s dining set in the 1970s into the’80s. (You gave them away, mom?!). If only she had known.

Weave a Winner
The airy appeal of cane furniture is on show on this spectacular bar cabinet that can sub in as a dainty linen closet or curio shelf. Made of sustainably sourced white oak, the drum-shaped cabinet has two fixed shelves and wine-bottle storage. A mirrored backsplash lends depth and dazzle as well. Also available in charcoal. West Natural Cane Bar Cabinet, Crate & Barrel, $3,100.
A tribute to the past, this nightstand gives a nod to the midcentury modern period and includes a mesh-panel front, a distressed patina and copper-accented pulls. Woven Front Two-Door Nightstand, Wayfair, $350.
With its Shreddies-like weave and low-slung profile, this rattan and teak accent chair makes a simple statement in a room. Fits beautifully in a Japandi-decorated space. Serbi Rattan and Teak Accent Chair, Structube, $249.
Modern and clean-lined, this bed gets a boost from the on-trend arches and inset cane detail. Imagine this beauty in a bedroom alongside bed tables, lots of (pet and child-safe) plants and artwork? You don’t need anything else, really. Allegra Bed, Modern Komfort, $1,500.
Start plumping up that piggybank because these stools will surely top your wish list. Jewel tones combined with classic canning make the solid-ash wood stools standouts. Which is your favourite? Domino Counter Stool, Industry West, $556.
Add panache to the entryway or a nook that needs an upgrade with this lovely console that measures 43 inches across. Petite legs, a sharp black finish and cane strapping over two drawers imparts elegance. Boney Console Table, Wayfair, $609.
Apart from the fact the cat might be inclined to use the weaved sides of this lounge chair as a scratching post, it’s pretty much perfect. Suitable for a Scandinavian space or a room with a Californian beach-boho vibe, the chair has a padded velvet seat and a solid wood and MDF frame. Delphine Cane Accent Chair, Amazon, $352.
Copper and Cane
Copper accents cap the feet of this fine-looking coffee table that features a wicker (or cane) panel. A spacious black-velvet-lined drawer means lots of room to store your living room essentials. Sayuri Wood Coffee Table, Mobilia, $799.
When Lighting Strikes
Grey is a groovy twist to the pervasive natural cane colour (though it also comes in a natural wood colour). Suspend the stunner in the living room, the kitchen, a dining room or even a hallway. Interesting lighting makes all the difference. Rattan Lampshade, Smallable, $263.
