Interior design trends come and go just as trends do in fashion, and similarly, just as they do in fashion, old trends often experience a resurgence in popularity some 20 or 30 years after their introduction to the market.
Towards the end of 2018 and early 2019 rattan furniture and homewares started popping up in interiors and Instagram feeds, styled up and looking fresher than ever.
Contemporary interior design, as we know, it often favours natural materials such as cotton, wool, linen, timber, leather, bamboo and woven materials such as jute and sisal. It’s only natural that rattan make a comeback.
An easy way to add texture to any room or add a ‘natural’ element to a scheme is to simply integrate woven furniture and homewares into your home.
Rattan, or cane, furniture has been given a fresh new twist by incorporating the style into trays, mirrors and baskets in addition to pieces such as chairs and sideboards.
Rattan furniture is particularly versatile as it usually fits into a wide range of homes and styles. Rattan is a vine that grows rapidly and is closely related to palm trees.
