Decorating with Rattan

rattan bed

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.  Rattan adds gorgeous texture and dimension to a room, plus it comes in practically in every shape and size from furniture to decor item, plus it adds a boho aesthetic that is simply irresistible. 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. Take a look at the different ways to decorate with rattan.

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. This duo lends itself nicely to a French or beachy cottage.


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 daybed is a wonderful and unexpected alternative to a sofa, plus it doubles as a sofa and full bed for guests.  This rattan daybed adds a feminine touch without being too girly.


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.  Add a sheepskin throw or rug on top of a rattan chair to ensure maximum comfort – trust me, you’ll never leave your chair!

      I love the ‘rattan’ decore. I’ve learn something today. Ive learn freedom is more settled than expression. Its the exception of simplicity that offers the state if mind through environment we create as such with feeling that the space is freer. doesnt have to start with the be . But also in the form of environment first that sets an ease to the mental compass.
      Creating your own freedom through your own space leaving the state of mind far from its tangible conditions with this decor.
