Sustainable home designs require eco-friendly furnishings made with natural materials, such as wood, rattan, woven fibers and seagrass. Gabby offers a selection of transitional furniture pieces that feature beautiful seagrass as a durable finishing material for the surfaces of tables, cabinets and consoles.
Seagrass is One of Nature’s Most Durable and Eco-Friendly Materials
Seagrass is a ubiquitous word that applies to a range of plants that grow in water. In most cases, this plant material is sourced from water hyacinth found in the coastal waters near Thailand, Indonesia and the Philippines. This fibrous plant material is very durable and has become an increasingly popular sourcing option for furniture designers and manufacturers who are committed to eco-friendly living.
When left in their more natural form, seagrass stems are identifiable and woven around wooden furniture frames, similar to wicker or rattan. They can also be processed, creating a smaller fiber that can be used for rugs or woven into cloth to cover or decorate furniture frames. When properly cared for, home furnishings made from seagrass will last for decades. They require little more than a damp rag to wipe them down when they become dusty or if something is spilled on the surface.
If you’re interested in adding eco-friendly transitional furniture to your collection, look no further than these beautiful pieces from Gabby highlighted with seagrass accents.

The striking iron frame contains two glass shelves, each of which has been wrapped with a striped seagrass cloth. This is a striking conversation piece that measures 24.24-inches high and 25-inches wide.
Corbin Cabinet. One of the most versatile pieces in the Gabby transitional furniture collection is the Corbin Cabinet. This piece can be used as a buffet, an entertainment center or as an entryway table and storage area. The timeless frame has a vintage appeal while the polished, white seagrass woven door inserts add natural appeal. This piece measures 34-inches high and 51-inches wide.
Cambridge Console Table. Our Cambridge Console Table features a new twist on the traditional sofa console frame, incorporating unique metal sculpture and a woven seagrass cloth top. The frame is finished in antique gold, yielding a warm-toned console that works as well behind your couch as it does along a wall.
