Rattan is a natural material. It comes from the tropics of Asia, Africa, New Zealand and Australia. Rattan cane is durable and light. That makes it popular with furniture designers. It also makes great bedroom furniture. It’s colouring and texture blend in easily with other types of materials and textiles. You don’t have to have all your furniture in rattan. You can pick out statement pieces to add the wow factor. Here are some furniture ideas to think about:

The Lounge
A rattan chair in the lounge can add a touch of style. You can pick up a French Provencal chair to give your lounge a sophisticated look. Or, you can go for a modern Scandinavian style. A nicely rounded chair with a big fat cushion is a lovely place to curl up with a book.

The Dining Room
A Rattan table and chairs can look very attractive in a dining room. You can choose a glass topped table to give an appearance of space. Chairs can be high backed for comfort with or without arms.

The Conservatory
Surround yourself with plants and add a comfortable rattan sofa. You’ve just created a tropical scene that will be great to chill out in, summer or winter.

Kid’s Rooms
Need somewhere to store the kids’ toys. A rattan ball is great for storage. It can also be used as a treasure chest or dressing up box. Perfect for imaginative toddlers.

The Bedroom
Rattan headboards can be plain block designs or incredibly intricate. They add interest to a bed and can help to create a classic or modern bedroom style. Rattan is also a strong material which makes it ideal for a headboard.

The Hall
Put some character into your hall and add some rattan lighting. Pendant lights come in all shapes and sizes. You can get beautifully curved designs in earthy colours. They also make great lampshades or bases for hall table lamps.

The Garden
Rattan garden furniture is attractive but durable, so it’s great for outdoors. Buy a matching set of chairs and a table. Or, be different and pick out mismatched furniture to create colour and interest. A great excuse to have friends round for a barbecue.
