Made from a vine found in tropical regions in Asia, this material has a long history of being used in furniture and home decor. Now, not only can you peruse secondhand pieces online at places like Chairish, but brands like CB2, Target, and Serena & Lily have also hopped on the rattan train. From indoor coffee tables to outdoor patio chairs, rattan fits well in multiple environments, especially because it can be tolerant to rain. Rattan pairs particularly well with boho and coastal aesthetics due to its wooden appearance and looks great dressed up with cushions and funky textures.
For a farmhouse style, rattan meshes well with warm wooden tones and woven materials. Honestly, we wouldn’t even be mad if you went all out and designed your entire living room in rattan, complete with pieces like a bench, coffee table, rocking chair, and more.
