Outdoor furniture made of rattan doesn’t just last for decades, but gives an instant urban-vibe to any setting, whether it’s a simple arrangement of a table and chairs you use, or go all out and get a chic rattan day-bed, hammock or swing for your patio.
Cane Everywhere Else In The Home
Apart from all these rooms of the house, cane also finds plenty of other uses throughout the rest of the house. Elegant and stylish cane baskets can perform the all-important task of keeping various areas of the house clutter-free by acting as catchalls for knick-knacks that are otherwise cluttering every possible surface. They can also be used to organize bathroom essentials and for giving bathrooms that spa-like appeal. They can also be used as chic magazine holders or as toy baskets in kids’ rooms. And last but not the least, they can sit on the dining table, holding fresh fruit and tons of visual appeal.
