Talking rattan

  1. 1.
    the thin pliable stems of a palm, used to make furniture.
  2. 2.
    the tropical Old World climbing palm that yields rattan, with long, spiny, jointed stems.


Rattan furniture comes in an array of shapes and sizes. My parents have a rattan sofa in their basement that I plan to use on my three season porch. All it needs is a set of cushions and it will be ready to go! I love the look in a room of the natural textured palm mixed with painted pieces and a dose of color on accessories. There are both vintage and new pieces available to purchase. One of my favorite sites for vintage rattan is Circa Who. Serena and Lily introduced this beautiful sofa to their line this Summer. Find it here
