Timelessly stylish and full of character, rattan furniture is a practical option that fits well in many homes and interior types. Its versatility means it can adapt to a range of interiors such as mid-century modern, Scandi-cool and boho-chic. These rattan pieces will look great in living rooms, kitchens, or even covered outdoor areas.
Rattan furniture is very flexible and so can be used pretty much anywhere in the home. Light and easy to move around, you can position your rattan chairs, tables and accessories in your living room, kitchen, hallway, garden or anywhere else that needs a shot of style and character.
Because of its natural look and inside/outside feel, a lot of people use rattan furniture when putting together outdoor dining areas and outdoor lounges. Place rattan armchairs around a rattan coffee table to create a charming al fresco experience, or opt for rattan dining chairs for a more casual look.
If you’re going to use rattan furniture outdoors, it is best recommended to invest in an outdoor furniture cover. This is because while rattan furniture is resistant to rain, sun and damp, it’s not completely weatherproof, so it’s a good idea to protect your tables and chairs when they aren’t in use.
Because rattan furniture is so versatile, you can style it in any way you want. Pair your rattan chairs with retro side tables to create a mid-century modern look. Place them in a light, bright contemporary interior if you want to go Scandi-cool, or add big statement plants and bountiful greenery for an indoor/outdoor aesthetic.
If you are placing rattan furniture outside, you can accessorise your chairs with a few throws. As well as adding a flash of colour to your al fresco lounge or dining area, this will help your friends and family stay warm when the sun goes down.

Unless your rattan furniture is specifically made for outdoor use, it’s a good idea to bring it inside, or cover it when it’s not in use. Rain, sun and damp can quickly degrade rattan, taking a toll on its looks and lifespan.
If your outdoor area is covered and protected from the elements, you should be able to leave your rattan furniture outside no matter what the weather.
Rattan is a natural material made of a type of vine. It is native to tropical places like Australia, Africa and Asia. As it is natural, rattan is more sustainable than other types of material, so is a great choice if you’re looking to reduce your carbon footprint and furnish your home with greener products.
Indoor rattan furniture is very easy to maintain. All you need to do to keep it looking good is to vacuum away the dust every once and a while. If there are any spills or marks on your rattan furniture, you can clean them off by gently rubbing the weave with a wet sponge.
