Canework, a synonym for elegance, sophistication and authenticity, is a handmade technique of rattan braiding that appeared during the 18th century.

Canework comes into our houses
You can integrate canework in different ways in your interior but be careful not to overload the whole of the decoration with the furniture and cane objects. The idea is to use the canework parsimoniously in order to obtain a beautiful universe, nice to live in and with a bohemian and natural inspiration. For that, opt for one or several of these ideas:
- choose cane chairs for your kitchen for a “bistro” result
- replace the glass doors of your kitchen cupboards by canework
- hide your radiators with cane panels
- bring brightness to one or several rooms of hour house with lights made of canework
You can note that a colour that is out of the ordinary for the canework (red, blue…) is perfect to create a modern effect.
