Tropical touches: How to introduce the rattan trend to your home

In need of a little interior design escapism? Let us introduce rattan. It’s the homeware trend straight out of Pinterest, and there’s a reason why it’s so popular. Made from bent and woven wood, these pieces have an easy, laid-back air, weaving tropical vacation vibes (and a bohemian ‘70s spirit) into your home all year long.

From statement furniture to smaller home accessories, there are so many ways you can style this wood in your space, and because rattan is so light, it can easily be moved from room to room when you feel the need for an interior design switch-up. Read on to discover how to style this trend in your home.

1. Make a statement

Make a feature with indoor rattan furniture for (almost) every room. In your living room? Throw it back a few decades with an intricate peacock chair. Use one to accent an unloved corner, or two to create a welcoming seating space. And in the bedroom? Add a scalloped headboard to create a statement-yet-serene sleeping scene.

2. Take it outside

Bring a touch of the tropics to your balcony or back garden with a portable rattan chair. With a cocktail in one hand and a book in the other, this chair is all you need to complete your sunbathing set-up. It’s foldable, so when the weather packs in, you can take it inside for safekeeping until the sunshine returns.
