Home decor enjoys taking a walk on the wild side a lot of the time, but this year, au natural is the king of the castle.
When we think natural, we think artisan furniture – handmade with a raw edge. This aesthetic is by no means a perfectionist when it comes to looks and personality but, ironically, therein lies its perfection.
Synonymous with wicker, rattan and earthy tones, an artisan aesthetic takes on a playful vibe through its incorporation of marble, scandi-style accents, mixed metals and heavy embellishments. Homes are brimming full of these bohemian treasures – think macramé in everything from cushion to wall hangings.
From refined rustic to modern chic, artisan furniture often plays to sustainability principles reclaiming materials and supporting the time-honoured skill of true craftsmanship. Buying artisan homewares can be a great way to shop local and support the talent in your midst. Farmers and antique stores teem with possibilities.
Frankly, why ‘woodn’t’ you?
