While wood has long been a go-to material in furniture, fresh new work shows that designers are branching out, making use of coconut shells, agave fibers, and more. It’s a trend that feels perfectly timed to the spring season, as we swap out lacquer and chrome finishes for those that feel more a part of the great outdoors. Some of these pieces, like designer Joyce Lin’s Root Chair, reflect their materiality in their form; others, like Grain’s playful Clover table made with cork, are more discreet. This nature-centric wave persists in fashion, too, where raffia hats and breezy silhouettes have hit the Jacquemus and Dior runways, respectively. Here, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite chairs, tables, mirrors and more that will help give your home the “natural look.”
Dior’s floral, lacy spring 2023 runway epitomized the natural vibe.
Jacquemus paired dramatic raffia hats with its sleek spring silhouettes.
