Rattan furniture is making a major comeback.
Remember rattan? You saw it everywhere in the ’70s: rattan chairs, rattan baskets, rattan patio furniture, and other wicker items. Most often, rattan was confined to porches and the outdoors (it does make great weather-resistant furniture), but today, the trend is popping up inside, too. Also known as manila, manau, or malacca, the natural material and beautiful woven technique adds texture and richness to rooms and can suit many styles, whether rustic, shabby-chic, coastal, or tropical. Best of all, since rattan and wicker decor is prevalent at thrift stores and garage sales, you buy it on the cheap. Here, see how the unique pieces are making a major comeback.
Combined with warm textiles, natural wood, and crisp white walls, the rattan chair helps this room combine farmhouse and shabby-chic styles.
