Kouboo is launching a brand new line of accent furniture ~


Everywhere you look we are seeing not only baskets but furniture of all shapes and sizes in the natural beauty of rattan, wicker, bamboori, seagrass, nito vines and more!  I for one have ALWAYS had a love affair with the richness and warmth of Mother Nature’s bounty!  More than 25 years ago I purchased 2 really gorgeous wicker side chairs for my home.  I had seat cushions and pillows made to compliment my sprawling English Tudor home, including them in the interior design of the master bedroom suite.  Since that time they have followed me across the U.S. and made themselves comfortable in 4 different homes of varying styles! The cushions wore out but the chairs have stood the test of time – and moving – albeit one was used as a chew toy by a friend’s black lab puppy 😇.


Whatever your style choice, a rattan piece here or there in your home will offer up comfort as well as sustainable, eye-catching pieces! These artisan crafted furniture pieces can be used in any room of your home – kitchen bar stools or dining chairs; accent chairs in the living room, sun room, den or office; bedrooms and even entry ways.  There’s even an adorable wicker kangaroo storage basket for your child’s room (but that you’ll have to discover on the website – wink wink).


I’ve included only a few of the many new styles and designs that Kouboo has just added to their online home decor store…so you’ll have to click on over to see all the yumminess.  In addition, I found so many inspirational examples using these woven masterpieces for your own sanctuary.

Everything in this kitchen and dining area are perfect ~ the wall of subway tile; the sleek and elegant island; pendant lights to die for and to top it all off there are these amazing woven chairs! Photo:


I’m in love with these contemporary rattan chairs! The weave of natural rattan is craftsmanship at it’s finest. Photos: Kouboo



This eclectic living room is full of surprises and textures everywhere you look. The layered rugs and assortment of pillows add depth to the room and the pop of blue is repeated subtly throughout, giving it a comfy, lived-in feeling. Photo: Christine Steven Visneau via Camille Styles



For those who live on the coast…introducing rattan, seagrass and wicker are perfect options for your interior design. They compliment the neutral colors of the walls, couch and chairs. Photo: Beach Bliss Designs via Birch Lane



What children’s room (or any room of the house in my opinion) would be complete without 1, 2 or 3 hanging chairs? Large woven baskets are catch-alls for toys, stuffed animals and blankies. Photo: Dee Murphy design; Bethany Nauert Photographer



A bedroom’s look and style can be changed in the blink-of-an-eye by swapping out the headboard or side tables. Kouboo’s new line of rattan furniture such as this natural loop headboard and nightstand will bring a tropical flair to your home decor. Photos: L – Lily Glass for SFbirlbybay; Kouboo



Who wouldn’t feel like Royalty in this spectacular master bedroom? The rattan bed is magical…and the room is pulled together with unexpected accent pieces such as the mid-century modern night stand and the vintage tribal rug. Photo: Decorist AveStyles; Photographer – Rennai Hoefer



This grand peacock fan chair is a throw back to my teenage years in the 70’s and 80’s 😆!! Some things never go out of style! Kouboo has brought back this treasure in 3 different colors of rattan- white, natural and a black and natural design. Photo: L – Pinterest; R – Kouboo



What could be better than an outdoor living room? An outdoor living room filled with beautiful rattan furniture! The bamboo ceiling and green plants are ideal compliments for completing the design . Photo: Eleni, My Paradissi, Spain


I hope you are as excited about Kouboo’s new products as I am!  The possibilities are endless but my 1170 sq ft condo only has so much space!  Time to pare down my list and add in a few new rattan pieces this summer.  Enjoy!

Ohhhh – the new products don’t end here!  New basket designs to follow later this summer or fall – whoo hoo!
