Oh, the 1980s! Big hair, puffed sleeves, and fluorescent trousers; some things are better left in the past.
Other things, however, are going through a serious comeback. Recently, for example, we’ve seen instances of rattan appearing in the world of interiors.
It’s an ‘80s trend that you need in your home!
Rattan: natural and hand-made
The ideal material from the 1980s is without doubt rattan. Rattan accessories, such as baskets, place mats, or even garden furniture were all the rage last summer due to the natural and bohemian vibe they create.
Rattan is the delicate plaiting of reeds which creates small holes. This ‘caning’ is also found in the most famous example: the iconic Thonet armchair. Airy and robust at the same time!
Rattan is also often used for the following:
- room screens
- interior accessories
The natural materials and the graphic pattern offer a warm, homely feel in your interior.
Rattan combined with warm shades
Rattan combines beautifully with warm shades and this season’s trendiest colours.
How about the Thonet-chair in a warm, beige dining room or rattan accessories against a soft pink background? Super trendy!
And rattan in combination with ochre, green, or sand shades is a real hit if you’re after a natural and botanical look (and don’t forget the plants!)
The possibilities are endless, and combine with various types of interior; from country and classic, to retro and bohemian. There’s something for everyone in this 80s trend!
Traditional furniture and door fittings as the perfect match
Rattan is also idea for combining with other natural materials, such as: bronze, iron, rust, and britannium.
