Fresh Design Ideas For Spring April 28, 2022

Visually light yet sturdy, cane furniture feels especially right for warmer weather. We love the elegant lines and natural texture of this platform bed from Lulu and Georgia, featuring a curved cane footboard and headboard. For almost any room, a classic Marcel Breuer-designed chair from Knoll combines tubular steel with a cane seat and back for the perfect mix of comfort and industrial “edge.”

We always draw inspiration from William Morris’s rich, detailed designs. His fabrics and wallpapers are a wonderful way to bring floral motifs indoors. The British Arts and Crafts icon was a champion of artisanal techniques and created gorgeous, nature-inspired prints. The Art Institute of Chicago’s current exhibit, Morris and Company: The Business of Beauty, runs through June 13 and highlights the artist, designer, and writer’s enduring work. Be sure to check it out if you get a chance!

Finally, fabrics from Raoul Textiles are one of our favorite ways to add a pop of color and pattern to almost any decor. The family-owned, Santa Barbara-based company prints its vibrant designs by hand on Belgian linen, creating heirloom-quality textiles that are perfectly suited to warm weather.
