The Atocha magazine rack is casual enough to integrate well in modern and contemporary lounge areas but also elegant enough to look good in formal environments. It has an X-shaped wooden frame that holds a leather sling. The size makes it suitable for the storage of magazines although you could also use it t hold books if you want.
The term has evolved to define anything made specifically from the rattan plant. The material is preferred by the wicker manufacturers because of its increased strength and durability compared to reeds and other fibers. Wicker, on the other hand, is the product resulted from weaving rattan, cane, willow, raffia and other natural materials. These are first cut into strips, dried and often soaked in water to become more flexible, after which they’re woven into wicker.
Wicker furniture can fit nicely in coastal decors or beach homes with an airy and breezy feel. The wam nature of rattan contrasts with the cool blue and white tones resulting in a balanced look. You can customize your rattan furniture with all sorts of cushions and accent pillows. Even though it’s so lightweight, wicker furniture is actually very sturdy and durable.
A pair of wicker chairs can look lovely in a dining area, around an intimate table with a round top. Wicker started out as a basket weaving technique and it’s being used for that even today. Wicker baskets are appreciated for their artisanal nature, being sometimes associated with the rustic style. Rattan furniture is often associated with outdoor spaces and decors although it can also fit nicely indoors. Modern interiors can accommodate rattan furniture easily given its casual and airy character.
