The Goodtime Hotel​​

Rattan has been used for centuries because of its durability and versatility, making it an ideal material for adding texture and character to any space. It's easy to maintain and care for and can be used in a wide range of applications. From furniture to accents, rattan has become a go-to choice for many designers looking to add warmth and style. Here are our tips on how you can use rattan in your own space.

1. Use Rattan to Add Warmth

As a natural material, rattan helps create a space that is inviting and welcoming. It's also a great way to bring warmth into your home without adding much color, which means it looks great with virtually any scheme. Rattan is durable and strong while remaining lightweight--a combination that makes it perfect for indoor use. You can easily move around the pieces in your home if you want to change the look of an area, which means you won't have any trouble making your space feel fresh every season (or even every week). 

2. Dine in Style with Rattan

Rattan is a great material for your dining area or kitchen. It's unexpected, but it works beautifully. Take a look at our Buyer, Daisy Finley's Kitchen, she used rattan stools around her island to add needed texture and warmth. We love that rattan is casual enough for the everyday but the details within the handmade pieces makes it elegant enough for more formal dinner parties.

3. Maximize Space by Adding Rattan Storage

If you’re looking to maximize your homes space, consider adding a few wicker baskets or other rattan items that can be used as storage containers. Wicker baskets are a great way to add storage to your home while bringing in additional style. They can be used in any room and come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors, making it a simple to incorporate into any space. You can also use rattan baskets as décor in their own right, adding them to tables and bookshelves as accent pieces. Rattan storage is a great way to organize your home and add some style at the same time.
