I've always been a fan of rattan - since the early days of my flea market trips and thrifting marathons. Rattan brings a sense of beachy chicness to a space and is so easy to decorate with it. A lot of people ask what the difference is between rattan and wicker: wicker is the weave and rattan is the material that is used. Not all wicker furniture is created equal; some is made from rattan while others are made from bamboo, straw, or other materials.
While a rattan bed (above) is a statement piece, other pieces can add a cozy feel without being too loud.
Mix in rattan chairs with a minimalist and modern table for an interesting pairing.
A rattan screen is not only a good way to break a large space up, but it can liven up a blank wall or space. Because of the open weave and pattern, it will let in plenty of light if placed in front of the window, while offering some privacy.
A rattan day bed is a wonderful and unexpected alternative to a sofa, plus it double as a sofa and full bed for guests.
Rattan is sometimes synonymous with boho chic. If you're inspired by "jungalow style", find a colorful Moroccan rug and rattan chair to brighten up a space.
