Design Sponge, has always been at the top of blogging great ideas, diys and projects.

With bamboo being such a favourite material to have in the home right now, we love this bamboo sunburst mirror tutorial.

Simple but very effective. It could be done in varying shapes or sizes. And if a few were made they’d be great grouped together.

Continuing from 2019, here are beautiful materials that are still strongly evident in all aspects of homeware and furniture.

Bamboo, cane, wicker, rattan are all across interiors stores with modern silhouettes and varying styles to suit all rooms.

Not just suited for outdoors or conservatories these materials can blend into many styles and trends. Tie together with a room featuring tan and mustard colour tones, mango woods and florals or use as a light highlight in a room of dark jewel tones. Throw a faux sheepskin over a chair, and add a cushion for a look suited to the colder months and then swap for light weight bohemian fabric throw in the summer.

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.
