There’s so much to love when it comes to the rattan trend that’s been making its way into homes all over. We’ve been seeing rattan furnishings go from covered patios and porches into living rooms, dining spaces, and bedrooms, and we just can’t get enough of it.
Whether it’s a small side table or a full-on headboard made in the material, rattan pieces have a way of adding bold natural texture, organic appeal, and a breezy, laid-back vibe in spaces. You probably associate rattan furnishings with beach houses, your grandmother’s timeshare, or even the iconic Golden Girls’ home. But the material is getting a versatile and contemporary facelift for 2019. But what makes rattan one of our favorite materials of the moment is that it’s absolutely timeless – it doesn’t really go out of style ever and it won’t feel dated in a few months.
Still, incorporating the rattan trend into your existing decor can be tricky. So to help you get started (and inspired), our stylists rounded up a few rattan pieces that you can easily work into your home. Read on for their top picks for bringing the rattan trend home in small, medium, and major ways.
