Trend | Natural Materials


A growing and unending trend in design is the use of natural materials. With an uprising in eco-conscious desires, manufacturers, designers and end-users alike are looking for ways to be sustainable and connect with nature.

We supply many furniture options in natural materials. Here they are explained.


There are many types of wood that can be used for furniture and we partner with responsible manufacturers who ensure that they source their wood responsibly.

Cane / Rattan

This material offers a beautiful finish that combined with clever craftsmanship can be woven into striking shapes and structures. It is hugely trendy and very eco-friendly.

Marble / Quartz

Giving gemlike aesthetics, marble will forever be a sought-after material. It has been used since ancient times and does not show any sign of slowing down. For a slightly less scary pricetag try quartz as an alternative.


Another resoundingly popular material is leather. It can make a very sophisticated and traditional upholstered appearance, or even offer a modern touch depending on what it is paired with.


More unusual but nevertheless very attractive is cork. It has a lovely soft texture, and the trees are not cut down for use, but stripped in layers and continue to grow.
