I can’t remember exactly when I fell in love with the cane pattern, but coming from the tropics, it was a motif that I saw everywhere at home – on chairs, placemats, headboards, bags. When it came time for me to create a logo for what would be my first home collection and eventual home store, it was obvious that the cane pattern be incorporated in the design. With the help of my friend Wendy Puyat of www.pordosolstyle.com, we were able to come up with a modernized version of the motif. I have since used this modernized cane element in some of my product designs — from boxes to candle sconces to mirrors (pictured above in black and gold).

I am also quite pleased that the cane pattern is making strides in the fashion world with DSquared2 using it on a tuxedo jacket and a pair of trousers which I am dying to get my hands on. For her spring 2014 collection, Tory Burch showed several bags in white cane pattern including the backpack pictured that is trimmed in leather.

What are your thoughts on the cane pattern?

    I’ve always love the cane motif, as well. It’s a classic and is never out of style.
