Ordered two chairs for our porch and love them! So unique and beautiful. Customer service was excellent. Highly recommend.
They are absolutely stunning, love, love, love them. Thank you so much for sourcing such a beautiful and well made chair. Nothing out there can compete against a true Malawi chair. Worth every penny. Thank you so much again.
So thrilled with our gorgeous bedside tables. Thank you so much!

What is the difference between natural raw and natural varnish?
Our natural raw pieces are the raw material - they do not have a chemical treatment applied to them and are therefore susceptible to the natural elements, such as sun and moisture. A natural varnish finish is a matt varnish finish that is applied to a natural piece of furniture so it retains it's natural colour, but has a level of protection similar to a coat of paint. There is little to no colour difference in the natural raw or natural varnish.
How do I care for my cane furniture?
Some furniture, particularly furniture living on the coast and exposed to heavy mists, can form a residue over time. Iron oxide stains in wood are usually dark spots caused by prolonged exposure to water and / or metal. The iron oxide reacts with the tannins in the wood and stains it black.The best ways to restore this would be to use Oxalic Acid.
Can I place an order if I live overseas?
If you are located outside of Australia and wish to place an order, we may be able to ship to you, please contact us and advise your Country and postcode with details of the pieces you are interested in.
