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.
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.
