Aurora bed encapsulates what sanctuary really is, the reminiscent comfort that we yearn for and the hope that the dawn brings as the sun breaks through. It is intricately crafted from natural material that was carefully sourced. This fully woven rattan bed bears a simple yet meticulously planned design to uphold a durable structure for an aesthetically pleasing piece. Its eccentric presence mimics the Philippines as a tropical paradise - warm and inviting. Just like the natural phenomenon aurora, it is the one that’s meant to be experienced.
