The most pinned interior trend in 2018, Rattan is all the rage right now. Its’ style evokes memories of long lazy summers of days-gone-by. Mix that comforting aesthetic with modern design and you’ve got a style that can work in all sorts of spaces and as Rattan is a naturally renewable palm, it’s sustainable too. Here are some of the best Rattan lighting ideas to help you get your Rattan right.
The beautiful woven technique used to create Rattan designs makes it ideal for lighting. The strength and lightness of the material allows for void-filling proportions and the gaps between the weaves allows plenty of light to escape – keeping the airy feel of a room intact. These gaps also mean the light bulb is visible through the material, making Rattan shades perfect for the unique forms of Plumen bulbs to shine through.

Using this natural woven material in modern designs offers a texture and richness that can suit all sorts of styles. With all their connotations of summer, Rattan shades work beautifully in conservatories and summer houses that are flooded with natural light. But Rattan is no longer confined to outdoor living. It’s popping up in striking interiors all over the house – from kitchen island clusters to statement bedroom features. Here are some stunning interiors for your Rattan inspiration…
