Exactly what I wanted. SupplyKatherineExactly what I wanted. Supply was challenging.5
Missing RattanCinudzTook a while to receive two of the BUSKO chairs. I noticed that the rattan was unraveling on the arm of the chair, so rather than return (because of the hassle), I’d just glue it back in place. Then I noticed that the rattan is totally missing from about 20cm of the chair arm. It is totally impossible to get a hold of IKEA with my concern.1
Beautiful Bohemian Armchair70sMissJust bought last week. Gorgeous chair, natural fibres, light and airy feel, doesn't take up a lot of visual space so makes living room feel larger. Only weighs 10lbs so easy to move around. Only issue, purchasing was a bit weird. Had to order and pay before picking it up in the service area after the tills. There was no display chair on the floor (Richmond) to view before purchase, so I had to pay for it and hope it was what I wanted. Luckily it was. Also, since each chair is unique (they are handmade so there are some imperfections in the shape and rattan), it would have been nice to be able to compare a couple of them and choose the one I wanted. But I am still very happy with it.4

Invite nature into your home with rattan

Rattan is a living material with a will of its own. That’s why we work together with experienced weavers who shape the rattan vines to functional products. The cooperation means you can have handmade furniture in your own home - created by man and nature together.

Rattan is a fast-growing palm tree that needs to be boiled and sun-dried before it can be tamed into different shapes that we can sit on, rest in, or decorate our homes with. This is where the professional weavers come in. “We wouldn’t be able to make authentic rattan products without them. They have skills that can’t be copied by machines”, says Andreas Fredriksson, who has designed some of our rattan furniture together with the artisans.

One-of-a-kind furniture

With rattan, it’s possible to create round and organic shapes that are difficult to achieve with other materials. Every rattan vine shifts in color and shape. It makes it impossible to manufacture two pieces of furniture that look exactly the same. On the other hand, you get unique items with a warm and homely feeling. “There are simpler materials to work with, but the liveliness in rattan is what gives it character. It can create a pleasant contrast to some of the other things many of us have at home”, says Andreas.

In cooperation with nature

If rattan is treated right it can be transformed into almost anything, even furniture with generous forms that can fit in a flat pack. But the design is not only up to the designer and the artisan. “You have to cooperate with Mother Nature and come up with some new solutions as well – but the reward when you get everything to harmonize makes it worthwhile”, finishes Andreas.


What is rattan?

Rattan is a climbing plant belonging to the palm tree family. It grows as a vine on tree trunks, its fast-growing tendrils easily reaching 60, and sometimes more than 300, feet long. They can be harvested without harming the host trees and grow back quickly once harvested. We use this lightweight, flexible and durable material in products like armchairs, rocking chairs, side tables, outdoor furniture and for handmade baskets.

Designer thoughts

”We like working with natural fibres like rattan and bamboo – living and renewable materials that provide great opportunities to create unique products. The most enjoyable part of this project was to use these materials in new and innovative ways. We wanted to make furniture in natural fibres, often combined with metal underframes, that is modern, gives an airy feeling, is easy to move and comes in flat packages. Better for the environment and easier to take home and enjoy.”
