Rattan, popular on and off throughout the last century, especially from the 1950s to 1980s in various styles and forms, is back in fashion and across the high street.

Habitat, known for its midcentury styling and strong designs from the key rattan era, is definitely the go to place for rattan and other materials that have a similar look – wicker, cane, bamboo, and other woods. Beds, shelving, chairs and more all embracing the current new trend.

So why is rattan different to other materials that look so similar? Rattan is a specific material, hence rattan furniture is crafted out of rattan only, but wicker furniture may be crafted out of different materials such as bamboo, straw and even rattan. Recently, synthetic materials are also being used for manufacturing wicker furniture.

It sits perfectly within either a clean minimal interior or equally amongst an eclectic bohemian styled room. It worked in the 1970s and still works now. Avoid mixing with chintzy florals – not to end up looking to 1980s.

Georgina Cave studied at the Interior Design School before founding Cave Interiors in 2002. With what has been described as “an infectious passion” for architecture, design, art and antiques, she soon became known for creating beautiful but real homes, each tailored to suit her clients’ individual needs, style & personality.

Having successfully grown the business with a relentless pursuit of creative quality, Georgina today leads a team of hand-picked designers which is regularly briefed to deliver spatial planning and end-to-end design for both old and new-build house projects, alongside some of London’s leading architects.

Drawing on long established relationships with specialist suppliers, craftsmen, builders and a vast network of international sources for salvage, antiques and unusual items, Cave Interiors’ work now extends to the complete renovation of historic and landmark listed buildings. Georgina herself has appeared on BBC1’s ‘Britain’s Empty Homes’, been profiled in House & Garden, as well as having her work featured in a range of magazines and the book ‘Casual Living’ by Judith Wilson, one of the UK’s leading interiors writers.
