We‘re all familiar with rattan, although sometimes we think it‘s one and the same as wicker. But the material we now associate with cozy furniture is actually full of surprises. The term rattan, for instance, defines more than 600 species of climbing palms and a lot of them are in fact more similar to lianas than to actual wood. Rattan has slender stems and doesn‘t grow like a tree but more like a vine, also being a bit similar to bamboo from certain points of view.
The world is full of stereotypes and preconceived notions that change the way we think or dictate the decisions we make in life. For example, when trying to picture a masculine interior decor a lot of people immediately go to images of a dark, sterile space ruled by chaos or of a space that‘s austere and has an unrealistic futuristic look. Such spaces definitely exist but they don’t actually define the majority.
Another idea can be to use a folding or collapsible table which you can put away when you‘re not using it. It would be similar to a folding chair which you only take out when you have guests, storing it out of sight the rest of the time. A similar option can be a wall-mounted table that folds flat against the wall and which would use a similar similar to that of a Murphy bed.
Wicker furniture can fit nicely in coastal decors or beach homes with an airy and breezy feel. The wam nature of rattan contrasts with the cool blue and white tones resulting in a balanced look. You can customize your rattan furniture with all sorts of cushions and accent pillows. Even though it’s so lightweight, wicker furniture is actually very sturdy and durable.
