If the right chair or coffee table could make your home feel like summer 24-7, you’d obviously cherish it. That is the aim of Australian stylist and designer Sarah Ellison’s curvaceous rattan furniture collection, which is finally available for purchase in the U.S. thanks to a partnership with Hawkins New York.
The line, aptly called Golden, features six pieces—a few chunky tables, some mirrors, and a chair—all handcrafted with rattan to create a ridged effect. The style is somewhere at the crossroads of beachy Australian, California cool, and Palm Beach retro. Of course, we love Ellison’s work for that exact reason. “For me, rattan evokes a sense of nostalgia. It reminds me of the furniture I grew up with in the ’70s and ’80s that my mother would have used,” she says. “It brings beautiful texture to a space and a sense of warmth.”
Even if your style isn’t precisely boho, this collection is pretty versatile: The clean-lined console would easily blend in with other minimalist pieces, and the palm tree–esque mirrors would feel right at home in a maximalist’s space. Honestly, what are you waiting for?
