Woven Rattan Chairs

By Kate Riley June 16, 2016

Oh how I love a fab woven rattan chair. I scored a pair of vintage rattan beauties at a thrift store a year ago (see them here) and to this day they bring me joy. Modern versions come in all styles and price points in rattan, bamboo, or woven wicker. Iconic styles have their own name: Peacock, Acapulco, etc. My favorite versions are the ones that channel chinoiserie patterns or those with a funky Palm Beach vibe.

Although they look fab all year round, woven rattan style feels especially at home in the summertime, it’s that affection for travel to warm exotic climates that stirs the desire to decorate accordingly.

High end versions creep up close to $1,000 and beyond. Capture the look for less with these woven rattan chairs under $300. Layer a throw or toss pillow on top and you’ve got yourself a textural style statement and also a place to sit and share in the conversation.

If you’re on the hunt for unique or vintage and unable to find anything at a local thrift store or on Craigslist, the best online sources I’ve found for second hand finds for woven rattan are Chairish, Etsy, eBayOne King’s Lane (vintage), and 1st Dibs.


Dimensional Wall Treatments

By Kate Riley June 13, 2016

Yesterday I toured some model homes in my area, I love to pop in to model homes to see how they’re styled and decorated. The one thing that struck me in one of the homes (first image below) was the two story grid wall treatment that greeted you upon entry (it was also present in the formal dining room).

So often we look to paint or wallpaper to make a statement, but there is also this option of a wall treatment beyond the basic plank wall to add dimensional pattern.

The sky’s the limit when it comes to this kind of wall treatment, create symmetrical geometric patterns in any dimensions you envision with various sizes of wood trim.
