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 furnitureis 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.
We saw this look grow in popularity last year, and it’s continuing this year. Focusing heavily on independent makers and designers but also handmade, hand woven products.
Move away from mass produced factory homeware and look at handcrafted goods. The detail and time spent making them is what appeals, and every piece becomes unique.
Soft furnishings is a a great place to start with fringes, raw edges and heavy adornment on cushion covers and throws.
Wicker, rattan and woven furniture is having a huge comeback – Habitat has just launched a new collection of rattan furniture, with John Lewis going for a woven look with their range. The Leia range of outdoor dining furniture has a fishermans rope weave on its chairs and sofas.
This woven style extends to pendants lights giving a very relaxed Boho feel. Lots of layered soft furnishings and natural colours. Go as bold or as subtle as you want.
Moroccan, Bohemian and Atzec pattern in design is still big in homeware, bringing a layed back and relaxed feeling to a room. We have found this flat – woven arrow print rug which we love, and will bring interest and appeal to a living room or bedroom floor.
Blending Moroccan, Skandi and Indian inspired hand crafted homewares, India May Home is full of gorgeous pieces that will bring a ‘laid back lux’ style to your home.
With a natural muted colour palette throughout pick from rugs, furniture, tableware, accessories and more, all hand picked by founder Karen Birchenough, bringing you a curated bohemian collection.

No home can have too many blankets – for their practical warming use or for aesthetic reasons they are always useful. Change the look or colour scheme of a room by throwing over a chair or sofa, add texture and pattern to a bed styling, bring soft furnishing outside and use with garden furniture or thrown over the grass and kick back – either way having a few alternative blankets in store to mix and match or chop and change is handy.
We love the bohemian feel of the High Vibes blanket from Urban Outfitters and it’s only £35. Perfectly on trend and see you through to Autumn/winter home styling too.
