Whether you’re looking for some small touches to spruce up your home or Christmas gifts that will make an impression, our designers have selected pieces from our new arrivals that will work perfectly.
For our latest collection, our designers highlighted elegance with an organic twist. Many products at Wisteria are handmade, but within this collection, our designers have five pieces that they believe stand out among the rest! Here are our top five must-have handmade pieces from our new collection:
1. Bone Inlay Desk
This marvelous desk was inspired by ancient Islamic geometric design. Originally, the bone inlay details stood to portray unity and order, and that same message is present in our Bone Inlay Desk. In this piece, the elaborate and intricate details seen throughout the piece are hand-cut and hand-laid pieces of bone. The stark cream of the bone contrasts with the richness of the wood, creating a perfect harmony. This handmade desk is an eye-catcher in any room and with its unique beauty, it is easy to see why it is on our designers top five handmade product list.
2. Live Edge Teak Coffee Table
Our hand-carved Live Edge Teak Coffee Table is a showstopper! Exclusive to Wisteria, this coffee table brings the outdoors in. Aiming to maintain the natural curvature of the teak wood, this piece brings organic character to any room. Our designers love the amazing growth rings visible in the teak of this piece, allowing the piece to tell its unique story.
3. Burl and Brass Chest of Drawers
Exclusive to Wisteria, our Burl and Brass Chest of Drawers is a sleek piece that is the result of a somewhat odd natural occurrence. Burl wood occurs when a tree is under stress. From that stress, the unique attributes of the wood are formed. Craftsmen must sculpt and polish the burl wood in order for this piece to come to life. Our handmade Burl and Brass Chest of Drawers is a prime example of the beauty that come from within, both ourselves and nature.
4. Amora Armchair
Our minimalistic Amora Armchair is a wonderful blend of wood and rattan. The contrast between the woven rattan and the sleek teak wood creates an organic, yet contemporary vibe radiating from this piece. This versatile piece is a great addition to any home, and alongside its functionality, the handmade nature of the piece brings even more pizzazz to the chair.
5. Roller Pin Mirror
Many remember their mother or grandmothers standing in the kitchen with their roller pin ready and eager to bake the day away. Now, you can bring those happy memories into your space in a new way, with our Roller Pin Mirror. This handmade piece consists of natural wood roller pins with each individual pin, consisting of a different shade of wood, allowing for a vibrant texture to the piece. Hand constructed, each pin is shaped from reclaimed wood making each piece a handmade treasure.
We have a bit of a philosophy about summer style at Wisteria, and we’re about to let you in on our little secret: No matter the room or style you’re going for, bringing in one or a few natural elements add warmth and a genuine quality to the look. You can soften modern spaces with a teak table, spice up a neutral space with bold, botanical wall art, or even layer woods and summery textures to maximize the seasonal style.
The great thing about organic summer looks is that they don’t just have to be brown woods and basic neutrals. Natural summer elements can be found in the entire spectrum, thanks to beautiful blooms, lush greenery, active waters, and lively wildlife. We’ve selected a few items from our wide range of new organic pieces to help you get started on your own fresh and natural update:
This exquisite wall art was originally developed as a copper engraving in William Curtis's Botanical Magazine in the early 19th century. This engraving (and its companion print) is prized for its large, lavish, beautifully hand-colored details.
Our Rope Mirror brings everything back to basics with its earthy, natural charm. The frame is wrapped in hemp rope, which gives it a raw, organic texture—just the thing for a touch of coastal edge.
Rattan is known for its incredible strength and flexibility. Here, it’s been formed in the frame of this mirror to resemble delicate fish bones. The open design lends a unique statement, while also showcasing seaside charm.
The pattern on this coffee table is similar to Balinese designs that have been a part of their cultural tradition in Indonesia for centuries. The look is gloriously dramatic and is a bold way to incorporate organic in a big way.
This piece evokes the essence of modern island living—you'll feel like you're lounging at an island resort in the tropics with a table like this! The teak top has wonderful, natural textures and the minimalist metal base is just the right balance for a modern space.
Chair design is categorically one of the most challenging feats of engineering in interior design. In fact, there are dozens of competitions internationally that put designers to the test, sometimes encouraging them to use innovative materials and creative methods of structure. But even with all this out-of-the-box concepting, chair designs have remained relatively the same since the dawn of time.
In our new summer collection, we celebrate the history of chair design with styles and silhouettes that can be traced all the way back to Ancient Greece. Here, we’re highlighting our designers' top picks for chic seating this season, but you can browse our entire selection here.
Neoclassical Iron Chair
This over-sized chair is inspired by thrones and seats used in early civilizations. It features a deep seat and lovely curves that make anyone sitting in it feel like a king or queen. We updated the look with a solid iron frame, neutral linen cushion, and two brilliant finish options: Deep black or shining brass.
Acrylic Klismos Chair
The original klismos chair was invented in Ancient Greece and it had three defining features: Four legs curved outwards, two parallel, curving rails for the back, and a narrow, horizontal, concave backrest. All of these curves were made to contour the human form as well as give the seat an elegant and shapely image. While it has four straight legs (for the contemporary home), the back of this seat fits the klismos description perfectly. Plus, this chair gets a whole new image in chic acrylic!
Acrylic is a relatively new material for furniture as it was only created in the 1930s, and its clear, modern style is generally associated with Hollywood Regency glamour. One of the earliest and most famous commissions of acrylic furniture was for entrepreneur Helena Rubinstein's New York City apartment, and it was quite ostentatious and ornate. Our armchair follows a more minimalist approach, designed to blend seamlessly with almost any style.
Abaca Dining Chair
Woven for both textiles and furniture, the abaca plant, commonly called "Manila hemp," is the image of breezy and tropical dining in our Abaca Dining Chair. Abaca plants are native to the Philippines and are mostly harvested for their strong, resilient fibers. Woven tightly over an iron frame, these chairs give a dining room an understated, natural, easy-going appeal.
Modern White Slipper Chair
Mid-century designs are recognizable by their sleek lines, simple curves, and contemporary profile. This Modern White Slipper Chair sports all the trademarks of mid-century modern decor with its uncomplicated profile and plush, yet understated, appeal. This chair features chic oak legs and handsome studded detailing on the back. No doubt about it—this seat will set a sophisticated scene in any space.
Modern Barrel-back Chair
Though relatively hard to trace, original designs for barrel-back chairs is thought to have been introduced in Europe in the 19th century. They rose to extreme popularity during the boom of mid-century design and became a favored seat for dining. The handcrafted Modern Barrel-Back Chair exemplifies this popular, mid-century style with its simple, yet sophisticated, profile and sleek wooden body.
