Stylist Picks: 11 Pieces That Do The Rattan Trend Right

rattan trendThere’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.

Pretty and practical, rattan trays are the simplest way to work this 2019 trend into your decor. It goes with practically everything and this design with handles has polished appeal.

2. Kids Rattan Nightstand

This rattan nightstand makes for a small accent piece that’s perfect if you’re looking to ease the material into your space. Not just for trendy tots, try using it as a side table in your living room to add a touch of texture.

3. Mobbi Round End Table

For a slightly more substantial rattan piece, this round table makes for an easy accent that’s stylish and functional. Bookend a white sofa with a pair of these to play up a breezy, casual look.

4. Sarah Bartholomew Octagonal Rattan Mirror

If you’re looking for a statement piece that will be a focal point in your space, this sculptural mirror with a rattan frame will certainly do the trick. Try hanging it in the entry for major impact.

5. Balboa Armchair

Comfy and laid-back, rattan armchairs lend rooms an airy elegance. They’re also super versatile. Place two on a covered porch or pull them into your living room for an instant conversation spot.

rattan trend6. Farmhouse Woven Rattan Baskets

You really can’t go wrong with rattan baskets, which we love as pretty storage bins for throws, blankets, and pillows. Another idea? Try using larger baskets as planters for tall leafy plants.

7. Tejido Dining Stools

To play up a casual, tropical vibe, group comfy rattan stools with your dining table. Not ready to commit to a full suite? Pull up a pair to your kitchen counter – they’ll provide the same relaxed feel.

8. Headlands Pendant

Among the most captivating uses of rattan we’ve seen, light fixtures are an amazing way to rock this trend. Try hanging multiple rattan pendants in a room for gorgeous accents that will instantly draw the focus upward.

9. Reflect Rattan Credenza

Ready to do rattan in a big way? This show-stopping credenza will add serious visual texture. It also offers plenty of storage and is a perfect display for art and objects. It’s our idea of the ultimate conversation piece.

10. Noelie Rattan Lounge Chair with Cushion

If big comfort is what you’re after, consider a deep cushioned rattan lounge chair in your living or bedroom to give yourself a place to kick back and unwind. We love a rattan lounge chair for the cozy and organic feel it brings to a space.

11. Santa Ana Headboard

There’s something about a neutral-hued rattan headboard that sets a warm, cozy, and inviting tone in a bedroom. It’s the perfect statement piece as it has a way of presenting natural texture without overwhelming a space.

Trend Spotlight: 5 Reasons to Love Natural Materials

natural materialsWe all know that some design trends easier to take home than others. Remember shag carpets? People in the 70s loved ’em, but today you might think of it just as an easy place to hide a year’s worth of crumbs. So when it comes to the decor trends of 2019, we were thrilled to see natural materials are all the rage.

An easy way to lend beauty and utility to any home, natural materials are a trend we hope stays around for a while. They are a particularly great move for the in-between seasons (think that pesky transitional period between winter and spring) and they won’t give you major designer’s remorse in a few month’s time.

These tactile substances – rattan, bamboo, seagrass, jute, and cork – bring new life to stale decor. They can easily make your space feel fresh and breezy, and just in time for warmer weather (fingers crossed summer comes soon!). Needless to say, we love this 2019 decor trend and, to help convince you, we asked our designers to list their top 5 reasons why.

Keep reading to learn all about the reasons we love natural materials!

natural materials1. They Add Texture

Is your current decor scheme falling flat? Whether you love neutrals or prefer pops of color, your decor can still feel blah if you’re lacking this one essential ingredient – texture!

And can you guess the easiest way to infuse some visual character into any space? You already know we’re going to say natural materials! And it’s true. Natural materials are a great way to spice up your current space without changing the style or buying a whole new set of furniture. Basically clash-proof, natural materials compliment even the most vibrant or the most neutral spaces.

Love the look?

2. They are Ultra-Versatile

Sometimes even when you love a trend, it can be hard to figure out how to integrate it into your current decor (we knew that rustic barn door felt out of place in our mid-century living room). Luckily, that couldn’t be further from the truth with the natural materials trend.

One of our favorite things about using natural materials is their versatility. From rustic, to modern, to anything in between, this is a trend that easily feels at home in rooms of all styles. It’s subtle enough to blend in, but eye-catching enough to make your space feel new. Talk about a win-win!

Bring this style home!

natural materials3. They’ve Got Major Staying Power

You know the feeling when you’ve had the same decor for a while and you suddenly realize you’re sick of it? Maybe it’s a wall color that’s overstayed it’s welcome, or even a trend you once loved but now can’t stand.

And unfortunately, most people don’t have the time or money to change their interiors as often as they change their minds. So what’s a style-savvy, mind-changing person supposed to do?

Unlike avocado green appliances or velvet wallpaper, natural materials won’t be going out of style any time soon. These pieces can be dressed up or down to work with your current design choices and repurposed in different spaces. You’ve gotta love a trend with staying power!

natural materials4. They Bring Nature Indoors

Spring and summer are all about bringing the outdoors indoors. We all know this is the rule of (green)thumb with plants and flowers – having photosynthesizing friends helps make your home feel more inviting, cleans your air, and makes you a happier human!

Pieces like jute rugs and bamboo side tables can help bring extra nature vibes to your home. This is especially great if you have a brown thumb because a seagrass side table needs no TLC. We’ll take all the positive plant power we can get!

Get the look!

If your grandmother had matching rattan lounge chairs and a bamboo fan, you may remember that the natural materials trend started long before the summer of 2019.

Using natural materials in your space is a great way to nod to the 80s without going overboard (unless you want to, of course). Cotton window treatments, jute rugs, and woven light fixtures are all great ways to get a taste of the 80s.
