Interior Design - Exquisite Rattan Furniture From Atelier Vime

One of my absolute favorite materials for both its timeless style and organic quality is woven rattan.  I just read a Katie Considers blog post introducing me to the meticulous hand-crafted chairs, daybeds, tables, lamps and accessories from the Atelier Vime furniture company in France.  "Vime - originates from the latin word vinen, inis, soaked, flexible wood, wicker..." scope all the details at Ateliervime.com

Atelier Vime has been "wicker working" for 150 years in the village of Vallabrégues, Provence overlooking the Rhone River and is rightly famous for its enduring industry of arts and crafts.  Exquisite vintage and contemporary furniture is available in wicker, cord and rattan. These refined designs are versatile enough to fit into any setting be it in the country, by the ocean or in the city.  For a quintessentially French uncluttered look rattan's perfect companion is wrought iron.

 It's as much about the beautifully tiled floor as it is about the custom crib that looks like an art installation in this setting
