Lulu Lytle’s Rattan showcases her furniture for Soane Britain as well as a decorative history of this traditional material.
Rattan was in my Christmas stocking. While the holiday is long over, the joy continues. Most notably is the joy from my gifted books. One of my favorites focused on a single material. Rattan. It might surprise you.
Noted designers often used this simple material.
A quirky chair brings whimsy to this Parisian bedroom.
It grounds this sophisticated sunroom. Home of Lauren Santo Domingo.
Yves Saint Laurent’s homes are perfection. Woven rattan lined the walls of this Villa Mabrouka bedroom.
Renzo Mongiardino tempers his opulent rooms with the inclusion of wicker.
He used the material repeatedly in Marella Agnelli’s numerous homes. Her patio in Ain Kassimou in Marrakesh is pictured above.
It turned up in unlikely places.
Who wouldn’t want to have their hair styled in this salon? Seeing this photo reminds me why I became a designer. Similarly, it reminds me to be more creative.
This banquette is so clever. Modern yet natural. Perfect for California.
Still wanting one of these wicker pedestal urns by Atelier Vime.
In conclusion, we should all take a second look at rattan. Not only is it chic; it is versatile and sustainable.
Casa V Interiors loves it. There may be a perfect spot for it in your home.
