Cultured cane, bent bamboo and right-now rattan furniture is certainly getting its moment du jour. With the advent of interest in these much loved oldie-but-goodie pieces of mid-century style the savvy stylist is picking up auction finds at very reasonable prices. Classic Seventies bedheads, drinks carts, and coffee tables are popular at auction houses but designers are also sensing that there is more to the trend that a mere nostalgic dalliance. Bowerhouse in Western Australia offers plenty of cool re-fashioned contemporary versions of these funky classics. Take for example, the Terrance bar cart, Barrel side table or Byron armchair. What I love is the combination of natural materials of the furniture with the colourful fine embroidered quilts, cushions and bed throws that Bowerhouse offers to complement the hard stuff. It's a perfect match, especially in the bedroom. See below.
