Decorating with Rattan - How to Add Texture to Your Home Décor
10 ways to incorporate rattan for natural texture in every room.
Rattan is making a comeback, and we're excited for the revival of woven materials (like rattan and wicker) in home décor! Rattan was everywhere in the '70s: rattan chairs, rattan baskets, rattan patio furniture, and other wicker items. It was most often confined to outdoor furniture, but nowadays, you can find rattan on indoor furniture and home accents of all sizes and styles!
How to incorporate rattan accents into your home décor?
This natural material and its ability to be woven in a variety of patterns allows you to add texture and richness to every room. From furniture to accents and serveware, here are 10 ways to incorporate this natural and neutral accent throughout your house.
Entryway - The Stacey Cabinet
41"W x 12"D x 36"H
Despite only being twelve inches deep, this white-washed teak cabinet has plenty of storage space and style. This piece is a great option for an entryway or foyer because it's narrow enough to be out of the way, but not too narrow that it loses its functionality. The doors feature woven-rattan panel insets that open to reveal shelving inside. Plus, with its white-washed finish, it adds just the right amount of coastal flair to your space, while the antique gold hardware elevates the overall look.
Home Bar - The Camden Tall Cabinet
51"W x 12"D x 45"H
Like the Stacey Cabinet above, this cabinet features woven panels inset on each of the doors in a light white-wash finish. While this tall cabinet is only twelve inches deep, the two pull-out shelves add valuable surface space to place drinks on. Inside the doors, there's two shelves for plenty of space to store glassware and barware. Meanwhile, the long top allows you to display your favorite bottles and decanters.
Dining Room - Natural Woven Door Panel Sideboard
68"W x 14"D x 32"H
This sideboard is a great addition to your dining room. Its light mango wood construction is a beautiful combination of coastal and rustic neutrality. The gold-tone base is right on trend while elevating the overall feel of the piece. Each of the woven panel sliding doors give you access to the shelves within.
Living Room - Holland Side Table with Drawer
24"W x 22"D x 24.25"H
Blending crisp white, woven rattan, and acrylic, this side table infuses your home with a coastal getaway feel. The texture of the drawer's inset rattan panel contrasts against the white silhouette and clean lines of the table to create a look that is polished, but also warm and approachable.
Bathroom - Biscayne White-Wash Rattan Vanity Mirror
20.25"W x 26.5"H
Evoke memories of sun-kissed days by the beach with our Biscayne Rattan Wall Mirror. Make a quick and easy update to the look of your bathroom (that doesn't break the bank) by replacing the existing wall mirror with our white-washed rattan frame wall mirror.
