While the glistening sheen of lacquer or the durability of a performance fabric have their place, the allure of natural materials is undeniable. These nine new products offer lovely ways to incorporate organic finishes.
Harmony Hyacinth and Jazzy Jute — PhiLlip Jeffries
Tapping into the natural beauty of water hyacinth, the Harmony Hyacinth line from Phillip Jeffries uses the versatile material to create a handcrafted, multidimensional geometric pattern.

Vintage Elmwood Stool — Bloomist
Sourced from a Chinese antiques dealer, these stools from Bloomist were made the traditional way, with wooden joinery instead of with glue, nails or screws, and were originally used as casual seats in shops and outdoor work stools on rural farms.
