Whether you’re shopping in boutique shops or dining at some cafes for an afternoon tea, you might have noticed that the aesthetics of these places rely heavily on the usage of wicker or rattan furniture in the recent years. With the usage of natural materials – wood for structure of the furniture combined and rattan weaving into the piece, it creates a warm, casual and relaxed space.
Rattan furniture in Singapore usually sport a minimalistic silhouette, making it a popular piece for its adaptability to match any space. From Minimalistic, Bohemian, Eclectic, Coastal to Retro or Scandi, rattan is a must-have to complete whichever style you choose.

If your bedframe in Singapore does not come with a footboard, a rattan bench works the same! It creates the illusion of having a footboard while providing seating area in the bedroom.
Scandi-Boho Living Room
Remember how Scandinavian and Nordic designs were the trend a few years back? One crucial design element to a Scandinavian home interior is no doubt the wooden furniture! Though wooden furniture in Singapore are more costly than other types of furniture, they’re worth the investment as they sure can last you a lifetime! If you have a Scandi home, give your space a fresh new look by adding textures with rattan furniture! This cabinet blends in perfectly with the existing Scandi-look while giving the space a more layered look with the weaving rattan.
Minimalistic-Boho Living Room
There’s no better way to unwind and spend time with your loved ones on a humid afternoon other than on a rattan one-seater! The weaving technique of the rattan not only provides a unique accent to the minimalist room, but it also provides ventilation for you to cool off and chill in Singapore’s hot climate. When the temperature gets colder (rarely the case here in Singapore but the lowest temperature recorded was 19 degrees!), add pillows or a blanket to snuggle up.
Bring nature in with tropical plants! To avoid a jungle-look, choose one big potted plant for a corner of the room. It’ll add enough greenery to the space without looking overcrowded. Another upside is it’s easier to maintain and prevent breeding grounds for the mozzies!
