Rattan’s enduring appeal has followed us into the new year. This should come as no surprise—the humble, natural material brings a lot to the table. It manages to be both extraordinarily lightweight and durable, while its woodsy, rustic aesthetic adds a vintage touch to any space. Flexible enough to be manoeuvred into chic and interesting shapes, furniture and homeware made of rattan bring warmth and a sense of nature into your dwelling, fitting perfectly into the midcentury modern design style that continues to dominate interiors trends year after year.
If you’ve been looking for the perfect piece of the charming material to invest in, look to Vogue‘s selection of the best and most beautiful rattan items that will bring the great outdoors into your home.
