Rattan furniture and homeware that nails 2020’s natural interiors trend

Posted by for Life

Rattan furniture is the way to go if you want an effortlessly chic, bohemian look for your home. To make it even easier, here are 17 home accessories and furniture pieces to buy now.

Rattan furniture is where it’s at. For a while now we’ve seen natural textures like bamboo and rattan in bleached neutral tones making their way from the Instagram feeds of travel bloggers in Marrakesh, Bali and Tulum to decor trend reports in the UK – and we like it.

Look at the hashtag #rattanfurniture (which currently has 133k posts on Instagram) or take a scroll through some of our favourite homeware brands and you’ll see that natural furnishings are big news, evoking a bright and beachy feel.

From ornate bamboo headboards to rattan storage solutions, add a bit of sunshine into your home with these effortlessly cool interior pieces. Mix with big, lush green plants and different shades of terracotta and burnt orange accenting accessories to complete the look.

    We know you can’t visit Paris right now, but this chic bistro chair will as good as transport you there.
