This stunning cane chair is an absolutely wonderful addition to your home. A stunning centrepiece to any room, it’s sturdy frame can take up to 100kg. It seems like the whole world is suddenly obsessed with cane again, but this time, this go-to material from the ’70s is back in more modern, unexpected ways. Cane furniture is definitely back on trend, from chairs, tables, and chests to decor accents like planters and even tissue box covers. Whether you want to outfit your entire home in cane, or you just want a subtle accent or two, this is the most stylish cane chair you’ll find right now. Cane is also highly renewable because the rattan plant from which it’s made is very fast growing and can, therefore, be produced sustainably.

home: featured [ rattan at Habitat ]
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.
