Rattan: A World of Elegance and Charm

Rattan evokes the glamour and exoticism of the Riviera, grand yachts, private orangeries, and tropical verandas. Once popular in the prewar era – rattan was charmingly depicted in Matisse and Picasso paintings, Cecil Beaton filled his conservatories with whimsical rattan furnishings, and paparazzi snapped dazzling stars such as Gina Lollobrigida and Marilyn Monroe lounging on rattan chairs – rattan is regaining its allure. Becoming increasingly fashionable in interior design and fashion spreads, rattan's appeal is a reflection not only of its intrinsic beauty but also the renewed interest in craftsmanship and sustainable design.
