rattan is my jam.

homes to love.

in case you’ve ever been confused about rattan versus wicker: wicker is the weave and rattan is the material that is used. Some of the wicker furniture that you see is rattan while other pieces are actually made from bamboo, straw or even synthetic materials. but regardless, i love rattan — my love affair began a long time ago when i discovered the designs of 1950-60’s — the mid-century modern gems that came out at the time — and i’ve been hunting them down ever since my first apartment. there’s something very southern california about the vibe, or maybe florida, but it’s all beachy and sunshine for sure — light and airy (especially when you go to move — light as a feather!). i went for a recent hunt on chairish and found a ton of great rattan pieces — from bartstools to daybeds and loungers and all sorts of bar carts and chairs. i’ve favorited a bunch of my finds for you, too.

  1. Great post! I try to incorporate natural colors and materials into my home style because it creates a more relaxed environment. I think rattan pieces work well to achieve a cool feel and can be done very easily compared to larger wooded furniture pieces. Rattan plus loads of green plants and I’m in one happy room! :)
