Rattan is growing in popularity in interior design, and rattan pendant lighting is a simple way you can capture the new wave. As rattan becomes more common in home décor, you will see a lot more of it in stores and staged homes. 

But rattan is not just for use in outdoor furniture or beach getaways. This versatile material is encountered in all kinds of different indoor furniture items to mix and match your look. We’ve found rattan uses across the board in mirrors, headboards, chairs, dressers, and tables, to name a few. Brands even paint different colors of the material, so you can play around with varying palettes in your space.

A brief history of rattan, and how it became more popular in home decor

Weaving natural materials is an ancient art form that dates back as far as the earliest civilizations of Egypt. This means rattan is truly a timeless material. The current application of rattan is a trend revival from the 1960s and 70s. Still, even before then, it was commonly used with wicker woven furniture dating as far back as the Victorian Era. 

Over time, wicker weaving quickly became popular in beach and island resorts, as well as in coastal homes and outdoor patios. Eventually, people in urban cities started to incorporate this design into their homes, creating a rattan renaissance. The style evokes the memories of a vacation getaway, ties organic materials into their décor, and adds Bohemian features to mixed-use spaces. Now modern homes are mixing in rattan to give it a contemporary revamp.

Styling your rattan pendant lighting

The beauty of rattan is apparent in its handcrafted tones and textures. It adds visual warmth and rustic elements to any space. The material is light and makes any room feel fresher, spacious, and breezy. Thus, the material captures both retro and nostalgic looks, while also being casual and comfortable.

You can complement the material with other warm elements like black metal, furry accent pillows, and leather furniture—or add more rattan furniture to create a coherent theme. Rattan looks stunning when paired right with organic forms and shapes.
