Our Canton collection comprises of bold statement pieces made of solid hardwood, hand lacquered with a distressed finish. We have created a style guide to help you in choosing complimentary accessories and lighting in your home.


 
To begin with: create the perfect backdrop
 
It is best to keep the backdrop as neutral as possible. This doesn’t mean white is your only option. Gentle cream, understated light blues and even an elegant grey work just fine. Remember that you are going for a soothing backdrop that offers a relaxed and laid-back ambiance. 
 
Secondly:  balance your surrounding
 
Balance is often the key defining aspect of an Eastern theme. You need the right harmony of not just the colours but also different textures and elements that surround you. Use your blank canvas and add natural stone decorations, wooden floors, bamboo blinds and a few organic textures in a composed fashion.
 
Brass is a very complimentary metal to pair with our Canton collection.  Some of our pieces feature antiqued brass hardware with engravings of famous quotes from classic Chinese poetry. This intricate detailing becomes a striking yet subtle detail. You will find this feature on our Canton 4 poster bed, blanket chest and dining table. Our Kudu table lamp is the perfect accessory to accompany this range, created with plated brass, our Kudu design is the perfect eastern inspired lamp to be an addition to your Canton console or bedside table.

Soften the look by introducing potted plants and shrubs, using plants in your home have many beneficial factors. House plants will absorb carbon dioxide and increase the flow of oxygen which our bodies will thank us for. Many studies prove that plants aid recovery from fatigue, head-aches and flu-like symptoms, so ensure you visit your local garden centre to purchase some greenery.
 
Textiles help to add ambience to any room, whether you want to experiment with colour or create a cosy haven. The eastern classic look should include a combination of linens, wools and cotton to both soften and anchor the space. We suggest our Lalen grey rug for both bedroom and living room, each rug is hand woven from the finest blend of New Zealand wool and is super soft on your feet. Combine cotton bedding with our Dimus range of cushions and throws, made from 80% woven wool blend which adds a lovely textural quality to create a comfortable setting.
