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, eBay, One King’s Lane (vintage), and 1st Dibs.
