Rattan is a natural material used to make furniture and decor, derived from the palm plant. The durable and flexible product is often woven and bent into a number of patterns and shapes, manifesting itself in patio furniture, lighting, tabletop accessories, and so on. It is often attributed to bringing in a touch of coastal, boho, traditional, or contemporary touches to a room. With the help of an interior designer or decorator, you can create a stunning all-rattan room or perhaps, rooms that feature rattan in subtle or significant ways according to your liking.
