The Fisherman Netting Bag
Fall 2019You must have seen all those gorgeous rope and netting bags that all the "cool kids" carried this past summer. I nabbed one of my own, but, truth be told, I love anything made with fishing netting, coir, rope, nautical cording- case in point my nautical rumblings board. It's no wonder these beauties have made their way to the runway. This rope and netting trend is certainly influencing our homes too.
Why? That juxtaposition of natural, sometime rough materials with high-style and fashion is alluring. Also, sustainability and recycling is on everyone's mind these days. The idea that we could repurpose something like netting or rope, items often found and used in the ocean, seems to be influencing our design trends for both the home and fashion. We know that Rattan and Wicker are here to stay, and using rope and macrame on furniture has become popular the last couple of years too.
In just a few weeks all the big and small home industry brands will debut their newest collections at Fall design markets around the country, and my prediction is that netting, rope and natural cording is on the rise. Just a few of our favorites...

2020- Tidelli's Amado Double Chaise
Phloem studio's Harbor stool is made with handcrafted wood yet the seat is woven rope. All their furniture is well crafted, but these Harbor stools caught our attention, and all made in the pacific northwest.
At ICFF this past spring,
I spotted the Chita Chair by Brazilian furniture maker,
Sergio J. Matos. With a steel structure, the chair is wrapped in rope and offered in a variety of colors, it is certainly cutting edge design using these materials.
When offering sources, I like to add an inexpensive option. And, for the bargain shopper here the World Market
is made with nautical sailing rope. Quite affordable and stylish as well.
