It's time for me to admit that I might be unhealthfully obsessed with cane. Do I actually own any cane pieces? No! That shit's expensive! But when I win the lottery will I have a house filled with cane beds, sideboards, and armoires? Uh, ya-huh. In fact, when that day comes, I'm going to have a dinner party to show off my cane dining chairs. I will also be sporting a cane as a fashion accessory. And Michael Caine will be there.

Anyhow, I just wanted to point out some amaaaazing stuff going on in the cane game. Industry West recently introduced an all-cane collection and when I saw it it was just audible gasping for a full 15 minutes. The great thing about their cane line: The wood pieces come in various different stains (green, blue, even a coral-y color). And they've also got some more unusual cane pieces like a lamp and credenza. Behold:
Now on to Urban Outfitters. They've maintained a strong cane-filled presence with their Marte collection, which is actually pretty affordable. They keep adding cane bits — the recent new arrivals include cane-backed, wall-mounted shelves and they're also doing some of the Marte pieces in a lighter wash.
Finally, I've just discovered DOIY, a design collective based out of Barcelona. And they have a product line called Kanne, which is all cane desk accessories. Te amo, tape dispenser.
