Material Focus: Rattan

News   •   Apr 18, 2019 13:12 BST

Hi there,

At IKEA we love exploring interior trends, and the 70s favourite rattan is making a comeback.

This natural material and beautiful woven technique is both versatile and classic, adding texture and an element of richness to the home.

Clotilde Passalacqua, Interior Design Leader at IKEA UK and Ireland says:

“Rattan is a material that can suit numerous personalities and styles, whether that’s rustic, coastal, boho-chic or tropical.

Its lightweight design and textural weave add dimension and airiness to a space, whilst its handicraft and durability make it a timeless material that will adapt to your changing interior design tastes.

Both its pliability and strength make it perfect for storage solutions, whether that’s our unique SNIDAD basket for storing anything from magazines to throws, or the BRANÄS laundry basket, keeping your washing tucked away and out of sight.

Rattan also works effortlessly alongside plants and greenery to create a beautiful, laid back look that channels a bohemian vibe. Whether that’s displaying your plants in our textured PEKANNÖT plant pot or unwinding in the garden with the MASTHOLMEN 2-seat outdoor sofa.”
