It’s coastal, it’s vintage and it’s cool again. Not to be confused with wicker, rattan is hand-woven from a particular type of palm tree and it’s making a stylish comeback in homes this 2017.
Here are three key tips when decorating with this humble material:
- Keep It Fresh If you like the idea of rattan furniture but wonder how it will work in a contemporary or classic home, look for pieces in modern shapes and designs and team them with on-trend accessories.
- Start Small You might not be ready to invest in a statement item, so start with accent pieces like a storage box or side table. It’s a good way to test the style waters: If you like the way it looks, next time you’ll be ready to take a gutsier plunge with a woven bedhead or set of dining chairs!
