There’s a particular material you might have noticed creeping into your favourite interior shop of late – rattan (or cane) webbing is definitely having a moment!

Of course, there’s a good chance you might remember this material from when it was last in fashion, but in the contemporary home, it’s a great way to add texture to your scheme while keeping the vibe light and airy.

We’re all aboard the rattan trend bandwagon, so here’s some of favourite picks that make it easy to adopt the style into your living space.

These clever plant pots may look like they’re made from cane webbing, but they’re actually made from concrete, making them durable and stopping any liquid seeping out when you water your plants.
