Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you.
Frank Lloyd Wright
I know what you may be thinking. If you are around my age, you grew up watching “Threes Company”. Rattan home decor was used to decorate the apartment set for this popular this late 70s and early 80s show. However, it appears rattan home decor has made a strong comeback.
Rattan home decor has been a trend now for the past few years. For me, it’s the second step of bringing nature inside your home. In addition to houseplants, rattan and cane home decor can help your home to feel like a vacation home in the tropics. It all depends on how you use these pieces and not go overboard.
Real rattan and cane home decor is from climbing palms which are native to tropical regions of Asia, Africa, and Australia. It is predominantly grown in Indonesia (70%). Cane is part of rattan, however it is left in its natural state, where rattan is typically painted. It is a vital part of South and Southeast Asian economy.
Rattan and Cane Home Decor
I’ve curated plenty of options for you to add rattan home decor to your existing home design as part of bringing the outdoors inside. You are probably most familiar with the rattan outdoor seating that is mostly synthetic found all over major retailers websites.
These pieces I have chosen, are natural and not synthetic and can add a touch of nature to your space. Cane furniture tends to have a more polished and traditional look versus rattan furniture which tends to have a bohemian feel . Did you know Hermès has a cane, walnut, and leather sofa that ranges in price from $56K to $100K? It’s absolutely gorgeous and can certainly appreciate it, but many of us need a more cost effective option!
Here are some great options I found on Amazon to consider. Bring nature inside your home easily by adding some houseplants from my previous post and now a couple pieces of home decor or furniture and then continue to my next post where I discuss paint colors and palettes to complement.
