I’m thrilled to current Sharland England’s brand-new handwoven rattan furnishings assortment! A set of nostalgic, romantic tables whose form is considered one of my favourites: a billowing, scalloped wave on the base which calls to thoughts a skirt or tablecloth, blowing within the breeze.
I’ve at all times been a fan of rattan and its historical past (do you know the Titanic had a whole rattan lounge bar?), so I assumed I’d share some historical past to what impressed the design of those items.
The scallops originated within the mid-century and are often known as trompe l’oeil material. In actual fact, my great-grandmother Marjorie Sharland, after whom the model is called, had a aspect desk on this fashion when she lived in Buenos Aires, many many years in the past. From the French “idiot the attention” this inventive approach was initially utilized to wall & ceiling portray and basically, it offers the phantasm of an even bigger, deeper area.
If I needed to decide a favorite amongst these tables, it must be the spherical espresso table- good for afternoon tea or early night cocktails.
