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.
Of course, there‘s also the most obvious option: a small dining table. There’s no match for that. Small dining tables come in a lot of different shapes and sizes and, compared to some of the other ideas mentioned so far, they’re more accessible from a financial point of view and easier to find in furniture shops. Consider a round table instead of a rectangular one if your desire is to save some space and to make the room appear larger visually. Round dining tables allow you to sit more people, offering more flexibility in this sense and they can also fit in right corners.
Modern wicker was initially developed as a basket weaving technique. In time, it evolved into furniture. By the 17th century, in Northern Europe, wicker looked a lot like it does today. The trend soon spread all over the world and became as popular and as common as it is today. Then, in the mid 19th century it reached the United States where it was quickly industrialized and mass-produced.
