The Treillage rattan collection celebrates the ancient art of wickerwork, which has been practiced for thousands of years. Ancient Egyptians made chairs of natural rush, while craftspeople in China and India worked with cane; medieval Europeans often utilized willow, and later mimicked the caning techniques of China. The Arts & Crafts movement celebrated the handmade qualities of these furniture traditions, from which time wickerwork has remained a casual and stylish addition to any interior. Our collection uses the natural fibers of the rattan palm: graceful, minimal frames are contrasted with a variety of decorative wicker artistry: tight loops run along the chair aprons, with airier open meanders on their upper levels, complemented by circular medallions. The Carolina dining chair is comfortably upholstered with tie-on seat and back cushions.

Limited yardage of Palmer Print/Antique, a new Bunny Williams for Lee Jofa fabric, has been made specially available for the release of our Treillage wicker collection. Additional quantities and color ways will become available in tandem with the launch of her new Lee Jofa fabric line, Arcadia, in 2023.
Bunny came across an extraordinary printed panel which inspired the Palmer fabric. It has a wonderfully detailed border of stars, foliage, and vines surrounding a field of interlaced, undulate rosette bands. A characterful fabric that could be used to great effect on upholstery. The borders, for instance, could be used as the outward facing panels of a cushion, and the fields used for the rest of the upholstery.
