SUMMER CANE

Woven cane, a classic natural summer material that makes me instantly think of chairs, especially delicate Victorian chairs that look so beautiful on a covered porch in the summer. Today this timeless pattern can be found nearly everywhere, and not just on chairs, but cane is instantly recognizable and being reinterpreted on plates, lighting, candles and wallpaper. Stylish and fresh, cane is the perfect way to bring a little summer to your home year round!

That pie crust is amazing! I love woven cane, it is so summery, and in winter, it brings a touch of the tropical indoors! XO!

Love the cane pattern, especially on the hurricane and La Plates plate. Funny that you are doing college visits now; we are at my older son's college orientation at Clemson. Maybe your son will consider it as well!
