The Rattan Chair: 19 To Consider

Sharing is caring!

The rattan chair could be considered the accent chair of 2021, balancing between timeless but right on par with current trends. Rattan is such a beautiful material; its’ versatility making it a great mix with all kinds of styles and spaces.

Casual rooms? You bet. Sophisticated spaces? The right kind of rattan chair can play formally too!

A rattan accent chair can pair well with the upholstered sofa, or look right at home in a casual sunroom.

Or, it can sit pretty in a nook as a breezy but upscale accent chair.

Rattan is a flexible stem of a palm plant, and is popular material for furniture because it becomes hard and durable. Rattan is not just for the beach- if you are looking to toe the line between both relaxed and refined, all at the same time – rattan is for you!

The “paint everything gray” trend has come and gone – but if it went a touch too far in your house, try adding warm rattan to cozy up the space. Rattan and gray get along great, and the warm color adds needed coziness.
