rattan is the perfect warm weather furniture solution. it reminds us of balmy beach days or our last trip to some tropical island. it’s light and airy with just the right amount of 1950 and 60’s vintage vibes — mid-century modern with softer curves, rather than hard edges. ever since i scored my rattan daybed i’ve become a rabid rattan fan and love the hi-lo texture it adds to the mixed up eclectic look i’ve got going on. a few pieces here and there go a long way to adding personality — a few rattan dining chairs around a modern table, or simply add a jute rug, some baskets, a pendant lamp, or maybe a few mirrors.
