Rattan furniture has been part of interior furnishings in the past and it’s making a comeback in 2021. Here we list down the top-recommended rattan furniture shops in Malaysia for you!
Most Malaysians can relate to seeing at least one piece of furniture made of rattan at your grandparents’ house, whether it’s the rattan chair that you used to sit on, the rattan basket your grandparents used to keep clothes in or the rattan decor you see hanging in the living room. Though some of you may have a whole different memory of the word “rattan” (or “rotan” in Malay) as it reminds you of a certain rattan cane or rattan stick that was used on you when you misbehaved.
Made of rattan tree, rattan furniture was a huge trend back in the ‘70s as it is lightweight, durable, and eco-friendly. And just like retro fashion which is seeing a resurgence lately, rattan is making a comeback with amped-up designs suited for today’s modern homes (the trend has even extended to the fashion world as more people are carrying rattan bags as part of their outfits). Here are 7 rattan furniture shops in Malaysia we recommend if you’re looking to incorporate rattan furniture and decor into your home décor.
