Elegant Rattan Pieces That Prove It's Not Just For Beach Houses
We all remember those rattan patio sets with pastel tropical-print cushions from the '80s, right? Although that particular pairing definitely still slaps if you're a Golden Girl, there's good news for the rest of us. Rattan is back — and this time, it's being used to create elegant silhouettes and sophisticated decor. The look is less literally beachy and boho; think less "'70s love shack" and more "Big Sur coastal cottage."
Ready to dip your toe into the trend? Read on to see nine of our favorite rattan pieces.
With its two drawers and straightforward lines, this Rattan Cabinet ($202) works beautifully as a side table, office cabinet, or nightstand. The wood caning and gold-tone metal base bring warmth to a room, and the natural wood grain means that each piece will be uniquely gorgeous.
