Trending Now: Rattan & Wicker

by |

The summer season means the weather is heating up and it’s time to get outside and into outdoor entertaining! From barbecues to parties for friends and family, the season calls for us to embrace our patio spaces and al fresco dining. When it comes to creating an outdoor space, rattan and wicker are your new best friends. The durability combined with stunning texture allows you to create an outdoor oasis without sacrificing functionality or style. Regardless of your home’s style, there’s a way to incorporate rattan into your outdoor space. From traditional to boho and even farmhouse, the versatility of rattan and wicker furniture is undeniable.

In a traditionally styled home, we love to mix the classic with an unexpected twist. Take this Jonathan Charles chair as the perfect example of old meets new. The curved back occasional chair features a traditionally styled front with a sonokelling matte finish, but the back features an unexpected pop of rattan. For a bolder rattan accent in a traditional space, choose the antique inspired Palmer chair from Phillips Scott. We also love this chestnut & rattan side table as another furniture piece option.

Boho spaces were made for rattan and wicker textures. The laid-back and organic style of a bohemian space offers the perfect environment for a pop of both. In a boho space, we love to play with fun lighting, and rattan lighting pieces are the perfect option. For a standout look that will complement any bohemian outdoor space, go with the Currey & Company Antibes chandelier. This piece marries artistry and high-quality construction with a natural rattan that stands out as a statement-making chandelier. Bohemian spaces can also embrace rattan in a bolder sense with more emphasis on texture. For a stand out piece on your porch, we love the idea of an all-rattan furniture piece like this Currey & Company Olisa etagere. The braided abaca rope makes a statement with its texture, but the neutral color keeps things from getting too out of control.

Another interior style that was made for a little bit of wicker and rattan? Farmhouse. This design style is all about natural elements and neutral, subdued color palettes, so pieces with natural rattan and wicker fit right in. An outdoor dining table surrounded by a set of these Phillips Scott St. Germain chairs will create a space that makes a statement with stunning naturals and texture. The bright linen seat cushions contrast beautifully with the dark rattan, creating an ideal farmhouse color scheme. For outdoor entertaining, we love to create a space that feels like it marries the outdoors and indoors in a seamless way. Rattan outdoor furniture is the perfect way to make your patio or porch space feel like a natural extension of your home.

Regardless of your home’s style or color scheme, your outdoor space doesn’t have to feel like a burden to decorate! Wicker and rattan are such versatile elements that regardless of your home’s style, your outdoor space can easily transition from the inside to the great outdoors.
