We love rattan furniture! Did you know there is a lot of history behind it too?
Rattan furniture has been around for much longer than you may think. This material was harvested because of its strength and malleability. These two advantages make it perfect for crafting furniture. While it is often referred to as wicker, the actual material is rattan and wicker is the weaving pattern. There is also a difference between bamboo and rattan. Bamboo is hollow in the middle, which makes it more susceptible to cracking and breaking, whereas rattan is rattan all the way through. This adds to the strength of the material for furniture building as well. So much to learn about this beautiful furniture!
We’ve gathered our 10 favorites, perfect for all seasons, for your home.
Would this not be the perfect accent to a porch or deck? The ivory colored cushions make it so inviting. I just want to cuddle up with a glass of wine on a summer night! This loveseat is functional year round. It would also be the perfect addition to a unique and boho dining room. The fabric is weather proof so can withstand any and all of the messes.
Nothing pairs better with a bold and eclectic designed room than a rattan chair! It brings in that element of warmth and texture. Look how delicious this rattan barrel chair from Target looks with the mauvy pink and deep blue accents.
If your looking for the perfect accent chair for those nooks and crannies in your home look no further. The size of it is substantial enough to be used for various functions such as a chair for your patio or deck, an accent chair for your living room or office, or could even be used as a chair in a reading corner. Just add some fluffy throw pillows and blankets!
The Pari Rattan Chair would look stunning at a dining table. You could have the entire table set with these rattan beauties or mix and match them with a metal chair like we used in our dining room makeover. If you are looking for some design tips and tricks for your dining room we chatted all about that HERE.
Not only is this rattan round side table adorable but it is so affordable! Can you believe it’s less than 100 bucks!? This side table would be perfect tucked next to a chair in your living room, as a small nightstand in a guest room or even to hold essentials next to your freestanding bathtub!
Okay, is this not the absolute CUTEST chair you ever have seen!? I can envision it paired with a small desk in a children’s bedroom, or as a vanity chair for your bathroom or bedroom. The options are literally endless and it would bring any space up a notch with how unique it is!
Daybeds are the perfect use of space in those guest or children’s bedrooms. This Honey rattan daybed will continue to be in style and on trend as your babies grow in to big kids and teenagers! Another benefit is that any color or design will compliment the natural tones of the rattan perfectly!
Can you even with this petal shaped rattan headboard from Wayfair!? Your room would feel like you are on a tropical vacation year round! The best part is that it comes in a mint green as well as white.
Hanging chairs are not only intended for patios! This hanging chair could be installed in your children’s bedroom, office or even in your living room if you are feeling super creative and extra!
Last but certainly not least is the Charley Rattan Chair from LuLu and Georgia. The over-sized scale of it is so fun and can envision it being the party favorite if you love to host any BBQ’s or outdoor events!
