While the perfect rattan chair might jump out at you, it might not. So don’t limit yourself! Rattan chairs aren’t the only pieces of rattan furniture. There are consoles, bar carts, ottomans and many other pieces. Just keep looking until you find one that will fit your living room perfectly. Are you loving the airy rattan style but not really the color? One word: paint. Just because it’s rattan doesn’t mean it’s untouchable. So grab a can of spray paint in that bright shade you’ve been eyeing and go to work. Frugal tip, this is also a great way to bring an old inherited piece of rattan furniture to life in a modern living room like yours.
One or more rustic accessories can really warm up the décor and the ambiance, making a space feel a lot more inviting and comfortable. And since mirrors are so versatile and part of every home’s interior design, they’re the perfect choice. If it’s the look you care about and not necessarily the authenticity of the item, you can even build the frame yourself and make it look rustic. Sometimes it’s just easier to make something yourself than to try to find the item in stores or at yard sales. It’s why we’ll start with a few DIYs. The materials needed for the first one include a large pine board, wide enough for you to attach a mirror to it and to leave some space around the edges, 4 trim pieces, 4 detailed interior trim pieces and a dark stain of your choice.
In his collection named for the Italian master, Knibb has taken the humble but iconic garments of modern society — jeans and t-shirts — and turned them into a work of art in marble. The designer says that at a distance, the table’s surface appears to be the disturbed surface of water. Indeed, when we first saw the pieces at ICFF, we weren’t sure what they were until we got close enough to see that the marble relief was clothing, including the finest of details: Ribbing, frayed hems, buttons and belt loops. It takes two Italian sculptors about about 700 hours to carve one of these tables. In a media interview, Knibb said that the first carver does a rough cut, and then second refines the piece, adding the details. Not only do the pieces look incredibly life-like, wrinkles and all, but you can see the veins of the marble in these amazing works.
