For centuries, rattan living room furniture and other wicker elements have found an essential and practical place in decor. Favored for its light and sturdy build, cane paneling and wicker chairs indoors offer a natural and handcrafted warmth that is hard to beat. Recently designers have been breathing new life into this time-tested construction with fresh modern designs that strike an elevated tone while vitalizing casual spaces with an artisanal touch. If you are looking for that perfect stylish rattan accent or statement for your space, we are here with the latest looks and design trends.
But first, what is the difference between rattan, cane, and wicker furniture? This question often arises when shopping this style as all these terms get thrown around a lot. Quite simply, wicker is a broad term that refers to the woven construction and all pieces made in that fashion. Rattan is a palm plant and material used in this weaving process chosen for both its flexibility and durability. Cane is a thinner part of this same plant used in more refined work, like geometric paneling on dining chairs.
Designers use these words freely as rattan and cane are such dynamic and well-loved materials for indoor wicker furniture. When in doubt, you can always check the materials used in a particular piece but in general, know that it is all referring to the same familiar family of woven furniture and decor.
Consider Your Space
Whether in the dining room or living spaces, every home has a unique quality and character to design around. Our collection of indoor rattan furniture comes in a dynamic array so that you can fit the decor to your look and needs. Nobody knows your space better than you. Start by taking account of your surroundings and visualize where and how rattan furniture can be a layering element to set off your look.
Rattan and cane furniture is fashioned into all sizes and forms but also comes in a variety of styles. Consider using the various stylistic tones of different wicker pieces for maximum effect. Are you refreshing a collected look or carefully balancing a curated dining room? The Summer dining chair can echo traditional notes while still tying together a modern feel in a transitional look. The Manila Indoor / Outdoor Dining Chair, on the other hand, is a modern sculptural statement of its own that uses wicker as a medium. Whether looking for subtle vintage-inspired notes or modern showstoppers, rattan can offer a beautiful signature touch.
No matter the look, remember to keep the effect of the whole space in mind. In a well-balanced aesthetic, wicker indoor furniture should be a meaningful accent or sharp tonal contrast—not an overwhelming cluster. In other words, don’t go overboard. Don’t shy away from that well-placed statement-making coffee table or from establishing a motif with something like our Margot Collection. Still, you may find maximum visual impact by letting each piece breathe alongside other materials.
Style By Room
Rattan living room furniture is one of the easiest ways to bring texture and character into your home. In a well-lit, open space, consider pairing an airy design like a wicker coffee table with a natural fiber pendant light made from jute or raffia for a look that feels coastal and casual. A media console with cane paneling is a discrete way to store speakers for a refined look—letting sound out while keeping in cords.
Bringing wicker chairs indoors is a brilliant way to make your dining room feel laid-back and light. It can also be an ideal way to balance the visual weight of a sleek, tone-setting dining table with a textural layer to set it off. A sideboard with neutral-toned cane paneling can complete the look.
Cane paneling and rattan furniture in a home office can offer warmth and fresh tones to ground the space with an at-home feel while maintaining its modern, functional appeal. Check out a rattan bookcase to provide an airy alternative for display and storage with a subtle cane backdrop.
From dressers to nightstands, the rich texture of rattan furniture is the perfect fit for bedrooms. A rattan bench at the foot of the bed can be the ideal complement to natural fiber bedding in a spacious room. On the other hand, cane detailing on dressers can keep a smaller space feeling airy and open while providing ample storage.
Wicker furniture is a brilliant way to bring the feel of the natural world into a whimsical space like a child’s bedroom or playroom. It is light and easy to move around and offers both visual and textural appeal that will enrich the space. Style it with botanically inspired wallpaper for a decor that comes to life with wonder.
While we have mostly looked at indoor rattan furniture, don’t forget how naturally this material works in an outdoor space. While some wicker pieces are made from synthetic fibers, others are given a finish to be more resilient in the elements. Our collection of rattan furniture indoor / outdoor options from seating to bar carts is a versatile way to elevate your garden or poolside with a refined touch.
However you decide to style it, remember that bringing rattan furniture to indoor spaces allows you the flexibility to showcase your design aesthetic. It allows you a chance to let your design be an expression of your taste with little touches of nuanced design. Layering woven elements and rattan wicker furniture into your decor is the perfect way to refresh its feel with timeless charm. Styled right, wicker furniture can offer functional bliss while enriching your home’s aesthetic.
