Rattan and wicker. They are the coconut scented sunscreen and bathing suits of chairs. Even if you are 10.6k miles from the sea or any other body of water than might get a ray of sun, these woven materials just make it feel like summer is here… and with it, possibility and endless bliss.
Enough said, right? Who needs more coaxing to pop a few of these Malawi chairs into their cart and sail down the virtual shopping aisle? Not me! BUT, did you know that if you purchase from CB2 (the least expensive place I could find online anyways) you actually get to save Africa. No freaking kidding. You can literally save an entire village… while shopping.
Who knew shopping could be so life altering! Each one of these chairs is hand woven and even hand knotted out of bamboo to create a truly artisan piece. Each one is signed, too. I love that! Here are a few of my favorite ways to incorporate the Malawi Chair into your home…
Add palms, a deep wall color, and florals + linen (all affordable at H&M home!)
Use them in the Dining Room:
The Outdoor Dining Room:
Paint it bright turquoise… or orange or pink or whatever strikes your fancy!
What a great and versatile chair, right? Where would you put the Malawi chair in your home?
