And even decorating tips found (here) in a household advice column in 1930, which tells us how by adding coloured seagrass furniture will add "a dash of colour in drawing (rooms) and lounge suites, tables, chairs, rockers, lounges, perambulators, and ... will give just that added distinctiveness."!
Distinctiveness aside, I love how it gives me that vintage vibe with a very relaxed feel. This is my own verandah and my own little collection of these, teemed with Moroccan lanterns, Armadillo&Co 'Dandelion' rug and feather-filled cushions this is a very comfy little corner during the day - as Lily would attest to. She wouldn't move for me to take the pics!
Cane and split cane furniture (the canes are split into half rounds) still survives and usually in much better condition than unpainted seagrass!
Here are a few shots of some of the seagrass and cane chairs that I have in stock at the moment:
And of course, take that 1930s advice - cane and seagrass can be painted white, black or any number of current 'on trend' colours!
Have a lovely weekend!
