How to Style with Trend-Forward Cane Furniture

When it comes to furniture, versatility is key. Natural materials are smart, resourceful go-tos when it comes to home décor, thanks to their ability to be mixed and matched with ease. With a light, woven look and easy, organic vibe, cane-driven designs are a great way to work wonderfully unmatched texture into any room.  

Read on to see how we look to cane to elevate our own spaces. When you’re ready to explore more products and top design trends, apply to become a Four Hands customer so you can shop all styles online with ease.

Cane is a material that came back and felt like a hot design trend, but has proven to have so much staying power.

Create Contrast

When styling with natural cane, adding dark brown or black accents crafts a crisp, high-contrast look that feels clean and sophisticated. Black-finished metals, dark woods or even bold statement art meet cane’s lightness, for a great sense of visual drama.

Make It Monochromatic

For a pared-back, Scandinavian-inspired look, pair cane pieces with other naturally finished materials, like pale woods or light leathers. Together, these complementary hues craft a light, beautifully simple look while maintaining textural interest.

Mix & Match

One major benefit of cane furniture is its adaptability. Thanks to its naturally neutral hue, cane effortlessly pairs with a range of other materials, from warm woods to cool metals, fine upholstery and more. Whether it’s a room’s focal point or a decorative accent, cane’s presence alongside other materials creates a uniquely eclectic look that’s surprisingly simple to create.

Mid-Century Inspiration

Brass accents are a great way to bring a touch of mid-century influence to the room. Here, metal-driven light fixtures and bronze-finished chair legs lend a sense of retro warmth to a cane-and-wood dining table and sideboard combination.

Just Add Texture

Cane’s best feature is its beautifully distinctive texture, which, even in small doses, can change or elevate the look of a room. Whether it's a grandly scaled bookcase, a trend-forward home office chair or a petite planter as a fresh accessory, woven cane adds a sense of depth to any space.
