Unusual Furniture & Rattan Designs


Rattan is the name for around 600 species of palms from the tropical regions in Africa, Asia and Australasia. Despite the fact that it’s predominantly used in furniture manufacturing, thanks to its durability, aesthetics and low maintenance requirements it’s becoming increasingly popular among craftsmen and artists. Moreover, the production process of hand weaving gives additional value to the object, may it be a piece of furniture, a home accessory or a Christmas decoration.

Nevertheless, you don’t have to take our words for granted. We’ve selected 12 unusual rattan designs that portray the exceptional characteristics of this unique material.

  1. You have to admit, these rattan designs are pretty impressive. There seems to be a strange connection though between motor sport and artists who use rattan as their medium!

    The voyage bed looks really nice, like something out of a Bug’s Life scaled up. The brilliant thing is how deceptive rattan is because that bed looks like it would be structurally week but the material is immensely strong in my experience.


  2. I saw many kind of outdoor furniture but the above snaps made me fan of Rattan designs . Each and every piece of furniture is amazing. Such the creativity at outdoor furniture make them more pretty .
