Rattan bedroom furniture ideas: shop the look

Rattan is an ancient material that’s been making a beautiful comeback in recent years. Let’s find out how you can weave it into your bedroom.

Rattan can often be confused with wicker but – to clarify – rattan is the material and wicker is the weaving method. Various materials and methods can be used to create different patterns, but as rattan is made from palm trees, it has a more delicate weave. You’ll find a huge array of rattan bedroom furniture to suit your personal style and budget.

And, as rattan can be made from hundreds of types of palm trees, it is a sustainable material. However, traditional rattan can come with a hefty price tag as it uses handmade methods, so even a simple design can take many hours to achieve — not forgetting the decades needed to perfect the method. I tried a weaving class once and it is not easy!

Rattan bedroom furniture for your home

There are a lot of ways to use rattan in the bedroom. The beautiful simplicity of the weave makes it look good in a variety of uses – from headboards to bedside tables. Rattan beds look especially wonderful, and if you need more ideas, we have a post dedicated to this very topic.

Co-ordinating rattan

As rattan is a subtle design feature, it means you can add a lot of different elements into the room without it feeling overwhelming. Why not match a rattan desk or a large chair with a lamp or a headboard?

Also, don’t feel constricted by this material. It appears in a number of different trends, from 70s revival to cottagecore – it is not really a trend on its own, so you have so many different style options. Go wild!

Rattan sideboards

The rattan weave is such an intricate and beautiful pattern and deserves to be the main focus of a piece of bedroom furniture. If you’ve got it, flaunt it! The humble sideboard is a great way to showcase the rattan weave with its large panels. For extra styling points, match the décor items to the colour of the weave.
