Native & Co Debuts Its First Furniture Collection
The owners of London-based Japanese and Taiwanese homeware store Native & Co have launched their first furniture collection called Inako.
Consisting of a bench, dining table and stool, the new pieces are all crafted from solid maple wood in the UK.
Inspired by traditional Japanese furniture and joinery, Inako’s design is subtle and discreet, allowing the natural beauty of the maple to be revealed. The name “Inako” derives from the Japanese word for an ear of rice – an emblem of the calm, understated elegance of this furniture series.
