Bamboo furniture may have come and gone with flares and disco music, but natural fibres are in the midst of a revival. The Braxton coffee table from Freedom makes use of durable abaca plant strips, which are woven over a sturdy box. The colour and texture brings the feeling of nature into your entertaining space. The table measures 120 cm long by 80 cm deep, and the lid slides over to access the ample space beneath. Store your throw rug or magazines out of sight. A smaller cube-shaped side table ($299) is also available. You can choose from light or dark abaca. Nature at its best.
