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.
This is the Uluru sideboard, a unique piece of furniture inspired by nature in every way. The Uluru Mountain, found in Australia, featured beautiful colors that change throughout the day based on the angle and the intensity of the light. The color that prevails is the reddish hue of rust which is also the color chosen for the sideboard. It looks theatrical in combination with the brass base.
Synthetic wicker was then invented, also in the US. This allowed it to become more durable and resistant to weather and pests. Modern wicker is usually made from rattan and it‘s really versatile. In fact, rattan furniture can fit in nearly any interior, also being very popular outdoors. It‘s appreciated for its casual and airy appearance, usually being associated with manual labor and unique hand-crafted designs.
