It’s easy to associate rattan furniture with your grandparents’ dusty old porch set. Just picture a wicker living room set complete with curly shapes and floral cushions. But rattan isn’t only destined for the flea markets and garage sales of the décor world. While it was traditionally used in summer homes, screened porches, and verandas, the new rattan can just as easily find a sleek and modern spot in our city homes.
Innovative furniture companies are now reinventing wicker and rattan in modern new ways that still feel as laid-back and low-maintenance as its predecessors. Better yet, the trend is easily adapted for all rooms and budgets, from small accents like trays and baskets to large statement-making furniture. Are you ready to weave in this breezy summer trend into your home?
