ACCENTUATE YOUR ROOMS WITH RATTAN BOOKCASES AND ÉTAGÈRES
Whether you idolize breezy island style or you consider yourself a haute bohemian at heart, few things top the vibrance that a rattan bookshelf can bring to a space. A category that consists of a wide range of styles, rattan bookcases can skew Mid-Century Modern, Hollywood Regency, boho chic, or coastal-inspired among a number of other styles. Use a monumental split rattan or bamboo bookcase in the style of Gabriella Crespi to evoke a glamorous 1970s bohemian mood. Not sure where to start? Try a vintage rattan bookcase from a maker like Paul Frankl to fit the bill. If you favor something with a more minimal silhouette, try rattan étagères in the style of Milo Baughman. These rattan-wrapped pieces often feature open shelves positioned at varying heights. They’re ideal for displaying everything from pottery to jewelry. To channel laid-back island style, look for open-shelf rattan étagères with flush-corner construction and brass details. Partner these pieces with playful Mario Lopez Torres animals, classic sofas trimmed in bright white piping, and tole chandeliers to bring the look home. In Hollywood Regency-inspired rooms, use pagoda-shaped vintage rattan shelves to add gravitas to a dining room or living room. Rattan shelving units can also be the perfect addition to nurseries in need of texture. Look for small hanging rattan wall shelves. Outfitted with board books and stuffed animals, they can be a darling addition.
