Incorporating Rattan Accessories as Alternative Home Decor

Incorporating Rattan Accessories as Alternative Home Decor

Rattan is one of the more popular materials used in making home decor.

However, some may wonder - why?

Well, the consensus is that rattan serves as a more durable, natural and versatile material on top of being organic and giving off a timeless appearance.

Hence, many homeowners integrate rattan accessories into their home decor to add a touch of natural elegance and sustainability.

But if this is your first time venturing into the world of rattan, you might find it difficult to incorporate this material into your current home aesthetic.

In this article, we will give some ideas on using rattan accessories in various areas of your home.


Rattan is not just for rustic interior design!

Before we start, let's get one thing out of the way: It's a common misconception that rattan may only be used for beach or rustic decor.

Here at Hemma, we're changing the way people think about this natural resource by turning it into high-end furniture and decorations that exude modern elegance and suit a wide range of decor preferences.

The natural elegance of rattan is on full display in our pieces while also boasting a contemporary aesthetic thanks to their clean lines and careful construction.

We have a wide variety of rattan furniture and accessories that are sure to complement your existing furnishings, adding a touch of elegance and natural beauty to every room, whether you have a minimalist or bold interior design.


Ideas for Incorporating Rattan Accessories at Home

Stools & side tables

Rattan Foot Stool


One of the easiest ways to incorporate rattan into your home decor is by using stools and side tables. Rattan stools can serve dual purposes – as a seat or as a plant stand – making them perfect for small spaces.

They are a great way to complement your existing decor while also bringing a new dimension of texture and warmth to your room.

These tables are sure to be an elegant addition to any room, whether you opt for a piece with a minimalist, streamlined design or one with a more intricate, woven style.

Storage & organisation

Storage can be more than just functional.

Beautiful and practical additions to any home, rattan baskets, shelves, and chests are strong and versatile, allowing you to store everything from pillows and blankets to games and books without being an eyesore.

Due to its organic and neutral colour, it can effortlessly blend with different types of interior design themes. For a bold look, consider a piece with a darker stain, or keep it light and airy with a natural or whitewashed finish.

A rattan shelf is a stylish way to display your book collection or organise your personal items in the living room or bedroom.

CECILIA Tall Storage Chest


If you're looking to add storage to your living room, a rattan chest offers ample storage for magazines, remotes, or games.

It can also be an ideal storage solution in a bedroom or entryway - perfect for items like extra linens, out-of-season decorations, or even shoes.

Divider screens

Rattan divider screens are a versatile and stylish addition to any room. They can serve as room dividers, provide privacy in shared spaces, or be used to section off areas for different uses.

For example, in a large living room, a rattan divider screen is a great way to section off a small reading nook or a play space for the kids. It also works to create dedicated functional sections in open-concept living spaces, such as the living room and dining room.

These screens aren't just practical – they're also stunning design pieces that make a great conversation starter and the focal piece for any room.

Decorative accents

No home decor project is complete without decorative accents, and rattan is perfect for this.

The beauty of rattan is that it brings a unique texture and depth to your space. The woven pattern of rattan lends a tactile element that other materials lack, providing a visual interest that can break up a room dominated by smoother textures.

Rattan mirrors, for instance, can make a room appear larger while also providing an aesthetic appeal.

Texture and dimension can be added to walls and ceilings with rattan decor as well, such as lampshades or headboards.
