No longer resigned to conservatories and summer houses, rattan furniture has had a resurgence in the last two years and the trend doesn’t seem to be slowing down.
For its durable and versatile qualities, the material has earned its rightful place in our homes providing elegance and sophistication as well as a casual laid-back look that works wonderfully with all interior design themes.
However, if you haven’t yet brought this natural vine-like material – grown sustainably in tropical rainforests into your home, we’ve put together a few ideas to get you started.
Bring a touch of nature into your living room
Lightweight and durable, rattan furniture is a great addition to any living space, whether that be country chic or modern minimalism, you’ll find a stunning wicker piece that will match all tastes and styles. Whether it be a Nordic living room or a bohemian staircase the paired-back, casual feel of rattan furniture will bring a touch of nature to your home.
Add texture to your bedroom
The intricate weaving and cane detailing of rattan furniture will bring texture and allure to any bedroom interior. Place a statement chair in a unused corner to create an unusual reading space or as a finishing touch to a vintage dressing table. As the material is extremely lightweight, you’ll be able to move the furniture easily from one room to another, if needed.
Use wicker baskets to create nifty storage
Available in a range of sizes wicker weave baskets can be used to create extra storage in any room of the house. Larger baskets can be used in living rooms to store blankets and cushions or in bathrooms to store towels and toiletries. Baskets can even be used in children’s bedroom to store away toys and accessories.
Create a statement with sculptural pieces
Sleek and timeless designs, adding a sculpted chair to your living space will create drama and intrigue. Look for striking contours and organic forms that work best with luscious house plants, botanical prints and other wicker pieces, such as mirrors, tables and footstools. Sculptural rattan furniture can be both beautiful and functional.
Team rattan furniture with modern interiors

The traditional wicker weave of rattan furniture provides textural contrast in rooms that are dominated by white walls, smooth surfaces and exposed wood or brick. For more of a visual impact look for furniture with shapely silhouettes and curved designs.
Create a vibrant space for the kids to play
