Rattan chairs are trending right now – here are 9 of the best styles to update any room

Posted by for Life

From H&M’s sell-out style to the French Connection bamboo and rattan chair you’ve most likely seen on Instagram – these are the best rattan chairs to shop now. 

Home trends often come and go but some manage to stand the test of time – rattan furniture is one of those. 

From bamboo tables, wicker accessories and rattan chairs, it seems as though everyone can’t get enough of rattan homeware right now. So much so, some of our favourite high street home stores – including H&M Home, Zara and French Connection – have already tapped into the interiors trend. H&M’s popular rattan lounge chair sold out and was restocked multiple times this year. Thankfully, it’s finally back and available to shop now.

 A good piece of rattan furniture manages to overhaul your whole room – from a bedroom chair, to kitchen stools and even hanging styles, there’s one for every space. They also suit every home style too. Boho fan? Opt for natural bamboo styles. A maximalist? Go for a statement black wood style with rattan details.

Another way to get hold of a standout style is to go for something sustainable and give an old piece of furniture a new home. Sites such as Vinterior specialise in vintage and antique furniture and often has unique pre-loved pieces, as does independent seller site, Etsy. If you prefer a unique piece with a modern feel then upcycled pieces may be for you. 

Pre-loved, vintage and upcyled furniture Instagram shop @house.of.rattan started during lockdown and is the place to go for rattan furniture and interiors inspiration. As the founder of House of Rattan, I think there’s something quite special about buying furniture which has a story. I love transforming old rattan pieces and giving them a new, modern feel. For me, rattan isn’t just a trend, its been around for so long, proving it’s worth investing in. A chair is an easy way to get a piece of the rattan action. 

Featured in one of our top home accounts to follow for DIY inspiration, @design_at_nineteen has the iconic Pierre Jeanneret rattan chair you may have spotted on Pinterest boards everywhere. We’ve found a similar style from Sweetpea & Willow. Shop our favourite rattan chair styles below.
