The current love for natural and woven products is one also close to our hearts. It was in her Saigon garden one afternoon that Kate was first inspired to create our Water Hyacinth & Lime Blossom fragrance, setting the tone for one of Cochine’s signature scents. Struck by a subtle yet crisp fragrance lingering in the air, she later discovered it was the scent of Water Hyacinth, the material used for the woven arm chairs on her terrace. Found in the waterways of Vietnam, these beautiful flowers have long, reedy roots which are harvested for furniture, bringing a wonderful citrus, woody scent to any room they are used in.
This summer, woven products are being spotted in stylish homes all around the world. A great way to bring nature inside, furnishings with a lovely, organic feel to them provide an elegant yet bohemian look. We have chosen some of our favourites below, all of which will bring a fresh, invigorating and natural vibe to your home.
Plant your greens and spring blooms in these lovely glazed pots with rattan detailing to create a boho-chic look and bring the garden inside.
Bamboo accents deliver a fresh look to any room. Try some shelves like these as an elegant storage solution for a bedroom or bathroom, fill with white towels and dress with a Cochine reed diffuser to finish off the look.
Water Hyacinth & Lime Blossom Diffuser
Fill your home with the citrus, woody notes of Water Hyacinth to create a crisp, clean atmosphere designed to subtly fragrance any room. Combined with the fresh scent of Lime Blossom, this invigorating fragrance is reminiscent of lazy afternoons on the banks of the Saigon River and perfect for summer.
We have seen these woven pendant lampshades used in some of the most stylish interiors we’ve spotted recently. Bringing a natural look to a more formal room, they also work brilliantly with a pale colour palette for that beach-side feel.
