I am a long time fan of rattan! I love how it instantly brings texture to a space where hard surfaces dominate, and reminds me of coastal holidays. It is a versatile and affordable decorating accessory and available in many shapes and sizes.
Here are my 4 Ways to Introduce Rattan Into Your Home.
One way to commit to rattan is to invest in a furniture piece(s). It is a sturdy and practical dining chair option that looks great with a base or scatter cushion.
It brings a relaxed vibe and works perfectly with blue soft furnishings.
Rattan barstools are practical and add texture against the hard surfaces in a kitchen.
This coffee table is the ideal choice against white occasional chairs and coastal blue accessories.

Rattan lights are another alternative. Woven lamp bases were used by Anna Spiro for the interiors of Halcyon House.
These pendants add a relaxed feel to a classic style kitchen.
But they also are a great choice in a more contemporary setting.
My slight OCD tendencies mean that storage is something I get excited about! Rattan is always a stylish and practical option.
Rattan accessories can be a subtle addition to a space. A basket is the ideal plant holder.
One of my favourite decorating accessories is a rattan tray. They keep a coffee table organised and styled. This one displays some coastal accessories, TV remotes and some of my favourite coffee table books.
Woven baskets on a shelf are simple decorating items.
So if you are thinking of a space in your home that needs a bit more interest or texture, definitely consider adding a touch of rattan.
