It seems like rattan furniture is not just for summer homes in Florida and Nantucket anymore!

It’s making a strong comeback and if you need texture in a room….and EVERY room does…..then a little rattan can help with that!

Let’s review….

In my own house here are a few examples….

This coffee table is ancient….and by that I mean I have had it forever!  But it still works for me and definitely gives me that shot of texture in this room!

In my keeping area…..more texture with the chairs and old french basket….

And in my family room….the rattan stool made the cut…..so there you have it……

Let’s start with lighting.  There is nothing I like better than a basket light fixture…..

How about a mirror?  This is a great way to add texture especially in a bathroom….

Another small way to get the texture is using barstools.  Below are some fun examples I found that won’t break the bank!  Also…. I love that you could add a fun fabric on the white one!


Y’all remember I used texture in my One Room Challenge with some occasional chairs.

How about adding a small stool stacked with books as a side table?  Small investment but big returns…..

Like my rattan basket coffee table the one below would be perfect.  We used the bench in the House Beautiful showhouse but recovered it with some vintage fabric.  The nightstand is great and I hope to have a project soon to use this Suzanne Kasler collection from Ballard Designs.  The small table is another perfect example…..

I could go on….but I think you get it.  I’m known for even after making the sale to keep pressing on my point….haha.

We watched “When They See Us” on Netflix and it was so good.  So well made a a little disturbing to watch but well worth it.

I highly recommend it. 

I have my nieces shower this Saturday so my sister and I have been so busy brainstorming!! We have to bring our A Game:)  

I’m in charge of flowers so I made up a couple to get the look we wanted….vintage….romantic….

I have to do 10 vases…..stress!  Let it be said that I am no floral designer…..

Talk Friday people…..
