Sturdy rattan and wicker furniture has always been a sensible choice for the home. But now the familiar natural material has been given a modern makeover. Taking inspiration from the rainforest, the new HJÄRTELIG collection from IKEA uses natural materials such as raw timber, rattan, and wicker as well as terracotta, tortoiseshell, and glass to create a relaxing and reflective refuge that is well suited to industrial schemes.
