We saw this look grow in popularity last year, and it’s continuing this year. Focusing heavily on independent makers and designers but also handmade, hand woven products.

Move away from mass produced factory homeware and look at handcrafted goods. The detail and time spent making them is what appeals, and every piece becomes unique.

Soft furnishings is a a great place to start with fringes, raw edges and heavy adornment on cushion covers and throws.

Wicker, rattan and woven furniture is having a huge comeback – Habitat has just launched a new collection of rattan furniture, with John Lewis going for a woven look with their range. The Leia range of outdoor dining furniture has a fishermans rope weave on its chairs and sofas.

A beautiful addition to any room for storage, we love this new piece in the IKEA Stockholm collection. This natural ash and rattan airy, scandi style cupboard is a light modern cupboard suitable for linen, crockery, books or even toys. Things will be partially screened to keep tidy but the cabinet still remains fresh and with a modern feel for a room. 

Stockholm pieces are limited edition so they’re not around forever.

This week we look at a new piece in the IKEA range and it’s an immediate favourite.

The new GRONADAL chair is a modern take on the traditional woven rattan rocking chair. 

As with the nature of a hand woven piece – every chair is one of a kind. The structure is built from beautiful natural materials – ash and rattan. 

The design is modern and light weight and would look perfect in a cool minimal Scandi-influenced designed home. 

£145 

The designer says;
The idea behind GRÖNADAL rocking chair was to make a rocking chair that joins different materials and expressions in unexpected ways. Rattan and ash are vibrant natural materials that age beautifully, and create an interesting contrast to the powder-coated steel. The seat and back are hand-woven using traditional techniques, while the light shape brings modern Scandinavian design to mind. Every part is made with love and care – which I hope you’ll feel when using it.
