Graham & Green rattan mirrors

All Things Rattan

I have always adored rattan furniture. Finally the stars are aligned and it seems like the rest of the world is catching on. From scalloped chairs to pendant lamps; mirror casings to pretty storage – it couldn’t feel more now. These are the pieces to buy:

Scalloped Chairs

Left: Soane have a specialist rattan workshop in Leicestershire where their chairs are hand-woven by expert weavers. This beautiful scalloped Venus chair comes with a real-deal price tag to match. From £1625

Right: As seen at Soho Beach House in Miami these Kimani Cane Chairs are newly available from Soho House Home, £895

Sweet Dreams

Left: We have a pair of these Bonton beauties in our twins’ bedroom. £338

Right: This children’s bed would also make a lovely day bed in a conservatory or playroom. £405

Soft Accents 

Left: These mirrors look best grouped together in a set. Mix and match your own, or buy this statement collection. Five mirrors, £330 Graham & Green

Right: Just add a touch of the rattan look with this stylish pendant lamp, £175 Cox & Cox

Colourful Storage 

Left: These baskets are just the thing for storing clutter inside or out. £43 each (L32 x H35 x D32) La Redoute 

Right: These children’s stools are great – the lid lifts up so that little ones can store their books or treasures inside. Storie Stool £38 Olli Ella

Garden Lazing 

Left: What could be lovelier than lounging on the lawn on this classic rattan lounger designed by Josef Frank? The design launched for the first time this spring – you choose the fabric for the cushion. €5000

Right: For a bargain, we love this classic Agen rattan chair, £30 Ikea
