Outdoor Rattan Chairs

Thank you Oka for sponsoring this post today, please read our disclosures.

When decorating several areas of my home, I often include rattan in my designs. It is perfectly coastal but also a classic texture that is timeless. I found Oka, a British-based brand that specializes in the “magic mix” of blending globally-inspired decor, playful patterns, and interesting textures to create a unique, yet timeless, collection of pieces. I’ve used several of their decor pieces in my home and I’m excited to share their rattan pieces with you today!

I have a long wall in my primary bedroom and have had the hardest time decorating and completing the space. I was given a historic mantel from an old Charleston home and wanted to cozy up the mantel with a few new chairs. With three young kids and a room full of neutral decor, I opted for outdoor chairs to complete the design. In this post, you’ll find out why I love using rattan in my designs and how these outdoor chairs are unique but timeless as well.

Things to Consider

There are several things to consider when shopping for outdoor chairs, like their functionality and durability. Where will the outdoor chairs be located? Consider if they be on a covered patio or out in the open. What level of comfort will you need in your outdoor space and will you be using cushions for your chairs?

Living on the coast, our outdoor furniture needs to be durable. We have very humid summers and the excess moisture will lead to mildew and break down of the chairs. Not all furniture is made for outdoor and you’ll want to select items that are made to last. Oka’s rattan is made to last and their outdoor furniture is one of their original designs.

Calbourne Armchair

While I used the Calbourne Armchair in our bedroom, I’ll be able to use these chairs for years to come as my decor and needs change. I’ve seen these chairs used in garden settings around a beautiful outdoor table. They also look great in a breakfast nook and a cozy dining room setting. I love the versatility of the chairs and with their timeless look, they’ll never go out of style.

These chairs are the perfect outdoor dining chair, characterized by its curved horseshoe back and elegant, skirted base. The chair is made from hand-woven, all-weather “rattan” that offers laid-back style and superior comfort for lingering summer evenings outdoors.

Using Rattan Furniture Inside

I love using rattan furniture in my interior spaces. The color of these rattan pieces are nice and cool, giving extra texture and depth for our spaces. Often, rattan pieces are yellow and orange in color, but the cool colors of these pieces are much more classic in our setting.

Timeless Decor

In addition to the outdoor chairs for our bedroom, I added several other decor pieces for our home. This rattan tray is beautifully made, with scalloped details and great for any table to house decor. I added a cute book and fresh hydrangeas.

I love the shells around these hurricane candle holders. They’re minimal and look great in my coastal home. They provide the perfect amount of high-end design for the space.

This umbrella stand is incredible and made to last. It’s nice and heavy so it will not tip and it’s made from the prettiest outdoor material that looks like natural rattan. I love how it sits in our fire pit area and houses an umbrella for extra shade.
