That in mind, it dawned on us that this is one fashion trend easily translated to home decor—and it brings the same in-vogue insouciance to your living room as it does to your go-to summer dress. From chairs to pendants to rugs, there’s ample opportunity to experiment with all things natural and woven for a look too pleasing to ever go out of style.
