It’s easy to associate rattan furniture with your grandparents’ porch pieces—just picture a wicker living room set complete with curly shapes and floral cushions. But rattan isn’t only destined for the flea markets and garage sales of the décor world. While it was traditionally used in summer homes, screened porches, and verandas, the new rattan can just as easily find a sleek and modern spot in our city homes.
Innovative furniture companies are now reinventing wicker and rattan in new ways (like IKEA's rattan pouf, or West Elm's luxurious accent chairs). This furniture feels as laid-back and low-maintenance as its predecessors. Better yet, the trend is easily adapted for all rooms and budgets, from small accents like trays and baskets to large statement-making furniture. Get ready to weave this breezy summer trend into your home.
Below, read on to browse the best modern rattan furniture to spruce up your space in style.
