Based in Cape Town, South Africa, Casamento makes what they call "expressionist furniture," using natural materials like raw wool, cotton, coir, and recycled fabrics. Anthropologie currently has a couple of their pieces on offer, including the Splayer Sofa, which combines cotton, burlap, silk, and linen upholstery and features long twine ties, for a "decidedly undone" look.

Above: The Splayer Sofa is $6,498 at Anthropologie.

Above: Detailing includes twine ties and handstitched buttons.
