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.
We’ve seen our share of buffets and sideboards as well as sideboard cabinets and most of them are pretty mainstream with designs that serve the functions they’re meant to but other than that don’t exactly impress. Every once in a while, however, we come across something outstand, something exquisite like a sideboard that stands out thanks to its unusual shape or a cabinet that‘s eye-catching in a totally unexpected way.
Pull-out tables can be very space-efficient as well. You can keep them hidden inside your cabinet unit and pull them out when needed. Then there are also the expandable tables which let you seat more people when required, remaining small and compact the rest of the time. Other ideas can be to save space with seats can be put away or to have a kitchen island extension instead of a freestanding dining table.
Rattan and wicker furniture can also be quite refined. There are plenty of iconic designs that inspired the world. You can always consider this option when it comes to furnishing an outdoor space such as a deck, a terrace or a garden or backyard. Of course, you can also bring rattan furniture indoors where it would have a casual character. It would be an opportunity for you to think outside the box and to achieve a cozy and inviting ambiance in an unusual and intriguing way.
