10 Years, 10 Icons
The past 10 years have brought us so many memories, accomplishments and most of all, beautiful furniture and home decor that have marked our decade-long journey.
Choosing our products is one of our key processes in which we take particular care to ensure that our collections show integrity as a brand through consistent quality and our varied selection of unique pieces that stand out.
‘There is a story in everything,’ a phrase that bears the essence of what is Zoco Home, and an integral part of our initial vision; a commitment to sharing the stories behind the pieces that inspired us through the years.
Here is the official list of our top 10 most iconic pieces.
1. Ibiza Linen Sofa
You may already be familiar with our Linen Sofa Collection, characterised by its draping, beachy linen appearance. But you probably were not aware that the sofa that started this emblematic range, was the Ibiza Linen Sofa.
Featuring removable covers, cloudlike firmness and a Scandi-Boho design to die for!
This practical and effortless piece gave us the edge in the then unexplored sofa industry for us. Now, we offer over 50 different sofa models and variations, with endless options for all interiors and lifestyles.
2. Organic Chair - now in black
The understated but timeless piece of furniture that has become a staple in our outdoor furniture collection.
The Organic Chair is our bestselling indoor and outdoor dining chair and with good reason! Made using treated natural teak legs and a synthetic rattan for the seat and backrest, it is the a practical piece that people love due to its boho personality and versatile nature.
Woven furniture, in general, is one of the main characteristics present in our collections, although we like to favour natural materials, when decorating outdoor spaces, you need to be sure that you are investing in durable furniture that is suitable for outdoor use, which is why our Organic Chair is so popular, and has a well-deserved spot on our list.
3. Shezad Seagrass Lampshade
What can we say about the Shezad Lampshades? Spectacular, jaw dropping, one of a kind.
These ceiling lamps are the epitome of luxury boho decor and staple of the home. Strategically placed, these lamps can change the whole interior design of your home, with the ability to divide spaces and create ambiances effortlessly.
Another example of our love for the handwoven, these unique hanging lamps are made using natural seagrass and woven by hand into the beautiful ethnic patterns that make beautiful shadows in the light.
Available in 3 different sizes to decorate each room comfortably.
4. Binga Baskets
Maybe with one of our favourite stories, the Binga Baskets are the wall decor classic in any boho/ethnic interior. Wall decoration is a must have in a home, even the most minimalist interiors, should have an iconic, statement wall and with these special kinds of pieces they will even tell a story…
Commonly known as Tonga Baskets, they are handmade using ilala palm mainly by women in the Tonga Craft Centre, a community with the goal of maintaining traditional craftsmanship, based in Binga village, Zimbabwe.
Basket making and other exported crafts are a way for women to sustain themselves and their families in a region prone to drought and poverty. Read more about the Binga Basket story here.
5. Beni Ourain Rugs
When we dive deep into the origins of Zoco Home, we can’t ignore the pieces that have launched us and sustained us throughout the years, due to their timeless nature and natural beauty. This is what the Beni Ourain Rugs represent.
The story behind these precious rugs begins at the foot of the Atlas Mountains in Morocco, where the rugs were originally crafted by Berber women. This region is home to an ancient breed of sheep that produces fine quality wool.
Zoco Home has shared a love story with Moroccan craftsmanship since the beginning, which is why we love to incorporate these rugs into our contemporary designs with a lot of admiration and respect towards the story behind these treasured pieces.

6. Root Stool
Going back to our roots, quite literally! Our deeply cherished Root Stool, a representation of life, nature and soulful furniture.
These solid wood stools are perfect for adding an unsympathetic touch of nature, a completely raw and untouched character in your home.
They are made from a single piece of teak wood taken from the roots of the tree, where you get these magnificently uneven cavities and mixture of tone and texture.
Our designs incorporate these pieces as stools, side tables, coffee tables and even night stands.
7. Borneo Outdoor Table
Another piece from our outdoor furniture collection makes the list! The Borneo Outdoor Table, a relatively recent addition to our dining table selection and one of our forever furniture pieces perfect for investing in your interior decor.
Our most popular outdoor dining table, for all the right reasons… Handcrafted using reclaimed wood and treated to be suitable for outdoor use, the timeless design and strong presence are just the icings on the cake.
With sustainability and corporate social responsibility as our brands’ long-term goal, this is one of the pieces that we are putting in the spotlight to promote sustainable shopping in Zoco Home.

These dainty ceramic plates, bowls and cups are a symbol of Moroccan heritage and authentic craftsmanship. Each with a different beautiful design, you could spend hours trying to choose the perfect one!
9. Bali Lounge Chair
Finding a place for the Bali Lounge Chair in this list was easy, just as easy as it is to incorporate them into your home styling. Always the main character in any lounge area, with its simple yet significant design using natural materials for that distinctive boho quality.
