Love furniture made from wicker and bamboo? Then you may be up for the latest eco-friendly furniture material of the summer: cane.
Cane is actually the peeled bark of rattan, which is a climbing palm that’s been used to make furniture for hundreds of years. And what’s old is new in the world of furniture as witnessed by the latest crop of caned pieces flooding the home decor market.
In fact, site searches on Wayfair for “cane” are up over 100% over last year—and with homeowners hunkering down and looking for ways to improve their decor, there’s no better time to consider this material.
