This year, nothing quite epitomizes summer style to me more than the straw bag. Paired with breezy linen and floaty florals, it’s by far the easiest way to inject some holiday glam to the monotony of your everyday look. So when it comes to prepping your home for the summer, it stands to reason that our first port of call should be the interior equivalent: rattan. Ahead, here are my top rattan home decor picks that are guaranteed to bring some summer sunshine to your abode.

Peacock Chair

Go big or go home with this positively regal statement Peacock Chair.

I’m in love with the drama that this fantail silhouette brings to a room! At the same time, the natural rattan textures keep the look grounded in boho casual chic. Pair with a distressed Persian rug and lots of greenery for a 70s vintage vibe.

Sika Ottoman

For something a little more low-key, how about this beautiful woven ottoman?

Designed by Italian architect and designer Franco Albini in 1951, this rattan pick is a verified classic. What’s more, it’s so versatile! Paired with the above Peacock Chair, it makes for a great foot stool. Otherwise, as a piece on its own this would be fabulous as a kitschy side table.

Rattan Buffet Dome

If you’re just wanting to test out the rattan waters, this Rattan Buffet Dome is the ideal place to start.

The beige and red geometric detailing makes this as pretty as a picture. It’s perfect for displaying in the kitchen or showing off to guests at your next dinner party event.

Donna Plant Stand

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, you can never go wrong with adding indoor plants to your home. And this sentiment increases tenfold when they’re perched on a charming rattan plant stand.

These plant stands are especially great for adding height and dimension to a space. Pair the tallest one with a trailing plant like Ivy or the Heartleaf Philodendron to mimic the hanging planter look.

Palms Rattan Chair

Take the edge off a little with the gorgeous curves of the Palms Rattan Chair.

This is the perfect partner in crime for a lazy afternoon spent idling in the sun. Simply accessorize with a vibrant tropical print pillow and you’re good to go.

Brycee Side Table

If the intricate woven surface of the Brycee Side Table was all the art I had in my home, I could probably live with that.

All this side table needs is a simple glass vase with a touch of greenery. Let the organic rattan textures do the talking.

Vienna Braid Rattan Lampshade

Did you know that rattan home decor is a brilliant way to add some vintage to your aesthetic?

Case in point –  this beautiful Vienna braid vintage lamp shade that looks like it came straight from the 60s. Hang it low over your dining table to create an eye-catching focal element in your space.

Check Rattan and Enamel Party Tray

I love rattan for its casual relaxed vibe, but every now and again I think this woven beauty deserves to be dressed up a little.

Elegant enamel is just the thing to elevate rattan to sophistication. The natural wash of color on the enamelware is still in keeping with the organic vibe of rattan, yet that gloss and shine adds a touch of glam to the overall look.
