Perfect indoor or out!CHRISTINEWe bought two to use as little moveable footstools for our couch. They work great for that — and I should add it was hard to find something that worked with the weird height of our couch, too.
Since, we have also used them for extra seats by throwing a pillow on top of it. We can quickly stuff a small throw in the open part.
And we can carry them outside easily, for extra casual seating.
All in all, great versatile purchase.5
Love the design and materialDorisLove the design and material but cannot get one screw lined up on the bottom. Using it anyway.4
Bad quality control, cheap constructionSharyl H.Purchased 2 of these. On one, the screws were tough to thread but I could do them. On the second, the holes were thick with paint, making it impossible to thread any of the screws. Used wire brushes, screws from the first one, two other adults tried but ended up using zip ties as the nearest IKEA is 1.5 hours one way, unrealistic for a return. Cute product but vastly overpriced for poor quality. Expected better quality for the price.2

Misalignment of legsTamraThe product is really cute. A little shorter than I need but overall really cute. The one problem I did have was that one of the legs was completely not in alignment with the screw holes on the basket portion. Out of the two leg pieces, one matched up perfectly and all three screws were able to be inserted. The other leg was bent all weird and I was only able to get one screw installed correctly. The screws are sturdy, so the placement of the one in the bent leg will suffice for the use this table will receive. If I had the time to deal with the hassle of returns I would have returned it for another table but I just didn’t have the means to do so.3

Perfect design pieceGergely B.Very happy with it. Looks nice, built nice. Strong and unique piece. Wish it was an inch or two higher to hide the outlets. It was easy to put together.5
Nice and sturdyAllysonIt is level and solid but it is a little smaller than I expected. It is low to the ground.5
Nice interesting pieceAnaWe ordered this piece for delivery. The item came in good condition, but a few little pieces were broken off. I still kept the item as I like the look and functionality of it. Its shorter than I expected, but still works well as a side table and as a foot stool/ extra seating. People always comment on how cool it looks. I wish they would make a taller one as well.4
I wish the rattan wasKatI wish the rattan was stained to protect it, but otherwise such a cool piece!5

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.
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 strong yet lightweight and flexible material made from the rattan plant’s stem. It can be used both whole and split into thinner materials that are braided into things like furniture and baskets. Rattan belongs to the palm family and climbs along trees, though no trees are required to be felled when the rattan cane is harvested. Since it is a natural material and the products are often handmade by skilled craftspeople, each object gets a completely unique look.
”We like working with natural fibers 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 fibers, 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.”
