The Rattan Rage!!
Updated: Apr 7, 2021
You've seen it everywhere!! With a big push for sustainable décor, rattan furniture is taking over every inch of your home; from major furniture pieces to lighting to home décor items.
Rattan is a naturally renewable palm that grows in diverse forests across Africa and Asia and can be fully grown and harvested within two years, compared to some hardwoods which take up to 20-30 years. Therefore, rattan is a completely sustainable product that is environmentally friendly (YAY!). Also, it's easily pliable and super durable making it ideal for furniture production.
With so many options out there, it might be hard to choose a couple of pieces to try out at home. No worries, friends! I've taken care of all the leg work for you!! Check out some of my favorite rattan furniture and rattan home décor items!
If you're not ready to jump right in to the trend head first, try out some accessories like one of these super cool mirrors, a collection of storage baskets or a shelving unit just begging to be littered with house plants and tchotchkes!
Rattan lighting is also coming up strong!! The black details on these fixtures really make the natural rattan material pop!!
Or if you're looking for something a little less permanent, no electrician required, try one of these table lamps with a pretty fabric shade.
Maybe you're a little braver and ready to just go for it! I'm loving these accent chairs!! The black finishes really give a rattan chair a modern feel and I'm totally here for it! For the purists out there, Ikea has done right by us, for sure!
Ready to go just a little bigger? Pick up a cocoon chair or a hanging chair; prefect to round out that corner space in your Living Room or Bedroom that you just can't figure out what to do with. Add some pillows, a fuzzy throw and a tiny drink table and you're all set!
I've also got you covered, work-from-home friends!! A rattan desk is the perfect addition to any home office! Go with something simple or take it up a notch with touches of brass to really help elevate your space to a whole new level!
Looking to bring a some natural elements into your bedroom? This large scale, Acanthus leaf headboard is everything rattan dreams are made of! Or pop this great storage bench at the foot of your bed!
Finally, your Living Room is the perfect place to show some of your friends your new fancy rattan finds! A coffee table is a necessity. A rattan coffee table is just magic! Purchase, place and await the OOOOO's and AHHHH's!!
