40 Timelessly Elegant Cane Furniture Ideas

timelessly elegant cane furniture ideas cover

Caning is an ancient technique that involves weaving thin rattan strips in a multi-directional pattern. Caning technique dates back to ancient China where it was utilized for basket making. Caned chairs have even been found in Egyptian tombs dating back to more than 1000 B.C. In the 19th century, caned furniture became associated mainly with Dutch and English colonial furniture.

Today, with its gorgeous natural texture and airy, lightweight feel, cane furniture is one of the freshest decor trends. We’ve been ogling this open-weave rattan treatment in our Instagram feeds for a while, and now some of our favorite retailers have embraced it with collections of chairs, headboards, storage pieces, and other accents featuring caned details. The woven pattern lends a casual, collected-over-time look to furniture styles, including boho, traditional, mid-century modern, and even contemporary. Besides rocking traditional stained pieces with cane webbing, you may also go for contrasting graphite grey, navy and black items with cane webbing.
