Trend Autumn/Winter 2019: Cane Bentwood Furniture Revival.

17 August 2019
2 minutes read

The cane bentwood combo takes our heart this season.

If there is one trend that is quite dominant in the interiors this year - it is the curve. Rounded shapes and sinuous lines are known for giving a softer and more welcoming feel. And that's when bentwood furniture comes into the picture.

Michael Thonet was the first one to pioneer the process of steam bending - heating  up the piece of solid beechwood to achieve desired curved shape for an elegant and ligthweight pieces of furniture from one continuous piece of timber. Before that, to create a curve, carpenters had to cut and carve wood. The chairs were popularly used by cafes and bistros across Europe. Today, the iconic Thonet chairs are simply known as “classic bentwood chair”.

Production process in the original Thonet Factory.

Meanwhile, cane is having somewhat a revival moment too. This lightweight and aesthetically pleasing material is being used in furniture elements, home accessories and even can be seen in current fashion shows. To top that, cane is a sustainable and durable alternative to the traditional use of wood.

The actual cane material  comes from the rattan stalk - a vine that belongs to the palm tree family. Caning can often be mistaken with wicker work, when caning is a specific technique of applying rattan cane (peel) to seat or backs and of chairs.
