After seeing and instantly falling in love with this chair from The Citizenry, I’ve been fixating on modern-style rattan chairs.
I’ve never been a big fan of rattan. Historically I’ve associated it with the kind of wicker furniture you might associate with your grandparents’ patio.
Fun fact — it turns out wicker is a furniture-making technique, and wicker furniture can be made out of many different materials. Rattan, on the other hand, is a material — a vine, to be precise, closely related to the palm tree. Rattan is actually one of the strongest woods.
I’m happy to see rattan enjoying a comeback. Check out these photos for some examples of rattan done right — and inspiration for your very own rattan furniture that will fit in with your completely stylish modern bohemian home (right guys??):
What do you think? Are you ready to welcome rattan into your home?
