It‘s shaped like a jewel and it has a name that reflects that. The Diamond sideboard has a sculptural design, with two doors that reveal a gold leaf interior fitted with shelves and a drawer. This version has a silver leaf finished exterior mixed with a chocolate brown high gloss varnish. The base, which completes the sculptural form, is made from mahogany and lined with bronze mirror.
This is the Piracucu sofa designed by the Campana brothers. It has a steel and wood structure complemented by a naturally textured and patterned upholstery cover.
Synthetic wicker was then invented, also in the US. This allowed it to become more durable and resistant to weather and pests. Modern wicker is usually made from rattan and it‘s really versatile. In fact, rattan furniture can fit in nearly any interior, also being very popular outdoors. It‘s appreciated for its casual and airy appearance, usually being associated with manual labor and unique hand-crafted designs.
The term has evolved to define anything made specifically from the rattan plant. The material is preferred by the wicker manufacturers because of its increased strength and durability compared to reeds and other fibers. Wicker, on the other hand, is the product resulted from weaving rattan, cane, willow, raffia and other natural materials. These are first cut into strips, dried and often soaked in water to become more flexible, after which they’re woven into wicker.
