Brigitte Dupuis. Furniture. December 07th , 2017.
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.
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.
Small dining tables are cozy and comfortable and ideal for people that don’t usually entertain or that don‘t receive guests often. There are plenty of designs and styles to choose from and hopefully the examples we‘ve selected can be of some help. They‘re pretty inspiring so try to picture them in a particular context so you can capture their entire beauty and to reveal their exquisite character.
If you‘re in the mood for something classic, perhaps this Gazette rack would make you happy. Its simple design allows it to be versatile and to serve as both a magazine rack and as a book storage option. Moreover, it‘s easy to imagine this accent piece in just about any type of space or decor.
